  1. 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  2. 1 ounce cranberry juice *
  3. 1/2 ounce peppermint schnapps
  4. crushed candy canes (for the rim of the glass)
  5. Small candy canes for garnish
  1. Shake the vodka, cranberry juice and peppermint schnapps with ice in a martini shaker.
  2. Crush a few candy canes until finely crushed.
  3. Place some water in a shallow bowl and dip rim of glass and then dip into crushed candy canes.
  4. Pour drink in glass and place a small candy cane over the edge for garnish!
  1. *I used frozen concentrate cranberry juice. The can calls for diluting it with 3 cans of water; I only use 1 can of water. This gives the juice a sweeter more full flavor and there is no need for any extra sugar. If you’d like it less sweet, add more water to the cranberry juice, or you can buy a non-concentrated juice.
