A white chocolate candy cane martini is the perfect festive Christmas cocktail. Guaranteed to make you feel like Buddy the Elf- in a good way!



  • 1 1/2 ounces of candy cane vodka
  • 1 1/2 ounces of white chocolate liquer
  • 1 ounce of cream
  • white sugar
  • red sanding sugar
  • water


Combine the white sugar and red sanding sugar in a shallow, wide plate. Dip the rim of your martini glass in water and then dip the wet rim in the plate of sugar. Set aside.

Add 1 1/2 ounces of candy cane vodka, 1 1/2 ounces of white chocolate liquer and 1 ounce of cream to a shaker glass with ice. Give it a good shake, and then poured it into the rimmed martini glass. Garnish with a candy cane if desired. Enjoy!


If you don’t want to make homemade candy cane vodka, you can substitute peppermint vodka or vanilla vodka with 1/4 tsp peppermint extract and a couple drops of red food coloring.
