Cute Cocktail: Candy Cane Cocktail

I don’t know about you, but my house is filled with sweets. Chocolates, candies, cookies and … candy canes. I love these peppermint-flavored delights, but I’m not much of a hard candy fan. I’d rather chew into something creamy and delectable, like red velvet cake balls, or munch on something crunchy and salty, like butterscotch dipped pretzels. But I won’t deny candy cane’s tasty goodness. So if you’re like me, enjoy this hard candy flavor in something even more delicious than a piece of chocolate: a Christmas cocktail.

I made this cocktail for the first time on Christmas day, i.e. the best Christmas ever. Did I mention that my Christmas day consisted of a movie marathon and numerous Christmas-themed cocktails with the hubby? Definitely the best Christmas ever. It’s simple to make although it does comprise of three different (somewhat costly) liquors, so save this recipe for a special occassion like New Year’s Eve, or for a random weeknight when you’re in the mood to splurge.
