Nothing screams Merry Christmas like beautiful, delicious candy canes, I always make candy canes a big part of our holiday tradition at our Texas Hill Country Ranch. I have candy canes literally everywhere, I have them on the tree, on the tabletops, in bowls… Wouldn’t you know, just when I thought I was done with candy canes this holiday I had to see this Christmas Candy Cane Drink Recipe on Youtube and I nearly fell over when I saw the instructions to make an actual cup out of melted candy canes, I just freaked out! This recipe was a candy cane lover’s dream, the recipe also tells us how to make candy cane infused vodka! I started by getting a silicone shot glass mold from Michaels, this was not expensive and I used my 40% off coupon that they have available daily, just pull it up on a regular search engine next time you are there. Then I filled the shot glass mold with round peppermint candies and baked it in the oven for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
These little cups are so cute, this little silicone glassmaker is my new best friend, I love it!!!
Then to make the candy cane infused vodka, you just break candy canes up in a glass bottle and pour your vodka into it, let it sit and sort of marinate for a while then pour into your ever so special candy cane cups.
This recipe is my favorite alcoholic beverage in the entire world, I love everything about this recipe.
