Candy Cane Vodka

makes 3 cups

recipe adapted slightly from Rachael Ray Magazine

  • 12 full-sized candy canes
  • 1  750 ml  bottle vodka
Using a food processor or coffee grinder, pulse candy canes to fine powder. Using funnel or a sheet of parchment paper, pour candy cane powder into jar of vodka. Screw on lid and shake to mix. Let vodka sit, shaking occasionally, until candy dissolves and vodka turns red, about 30 minutes.  If they’re are bits of candy cane remaining, strain with a fine mesh strainer and return to the jar.  Keep vodka sealed & refrigerated. Should last up to a month.
