Sharing is caring!

Just the right amount of creme de menthe makes this Candy Cane Martini a holiday favorite. It’s become a Christmas Eve tradition in our house. Cheers to the holidays!

Makes 1 cocktail.

1.5 oz vanilla vodka
1.5 oz white chocolate liqueur
0.75 oz white creme de menthe*
3 oz whole milk or half and half**
Mini candy cane (optional)
Red, green, and white sugar (optional)

Prepare your glass:

Mix the red, green, and white sugar on a small plate.

On a separate small place, place a few tablespoons of water.

Dip the rim of a martini glass in the water.

Carefully roll the rim in the sugars until all of the rim is coated.

Set aside.

Make your cocktail:

In a cocktail shaker full of ice, combine vanilla vodka, white chocolate liqueur, creme de menthe, and milk.

Cover and shake well.

Strain into your prepared glass.

Garnish with mini candy cane.

Enjoy your Candy Cane Martini!


*You can use green creme de menthe here if you can’t find white/clear creme de menthe. The taste is the same. Your cocktail with just be mint green instead of white.

**While I recommend a high milk fat, whatever milk you have on hand will work. Your cocktail won’t be as creamy, but it will still be tasty.
