Thirsty Thursday: Candy Cane Cocktail



Candy Cane Cocktail by Martha Stewart

Happy Holidays everyone. Now that we are in full swing of the holiday season, why not feature a Thirsty Thursday with a little holiday cheer. This week Thirsty Thursday is a Candy Cane Cocktail, perfect for any holiday party, a great Christmas gathering, or just because you want a nice drink.

There isn’t anything too fancy to this drink, more like the look of the drink is cool. Your friends and family will think you put a lot of work into when actually it only took a few minutes to make!


  • 1 candy cane, crushed
  • 2 ounces strawberry vodka
  • 4 dashes white creme de menthe
  • 2 1/2 ounces cranberry juice
  • Ice Cubes


Crush your candy canes and place them on a plate or saucer. Wet the outside rim of a martini glass with water. Hold the glass by the steam and rotate the rim to coat it in the candy cane.

In a shaker, mix the vodka, creme de menthe, cranberry juice, and ice and ice and shake well until it is combined. Strain your cocktail int your prepared glass and you are ready to drink your Candy Cane Cocktail!

If you want this drink to be non-alcoholic but still fun you can just use sparkling water with cranberry juice, cram-apple cider, or something that is similar in color and will taste good with a candy cane.

Happy Holidays!
