Since it seems this is the season of peppermint, I have decided to make a peppermint vodka to give a hostess gift. This is a cool crisp drink to be used as a refreshing addition to any cocktail. Peppermint Vodka can even be chilled and simply sipped by the fire.
Ingredients for Peppermint Vodka Recipe:
6 Peppermint Candy Canes (I used Brach’s since they use real Peppermint oil in their candy canes)
4 Cups vodka
Directions for How to Make Peppermint Vodka:
1. Unwrap 6 Peppermint candy canes. Place in a ziplock bag and smash. This is where you can let out a little frustration.
2. Pour 4 cups of vodka into a bottle. Then carefully pour the crushed peppermint candy canes into the bottle. These two steps can be reversed.
3. Shake the bottle. The peppermint dissolves really quickly and turns the vodka a lovely shade of pink. I decorated the bottle with a couple of candy cane’s and a little gift tag. I am going to be giving this as a hostess gift for a party.
Here are a few drink recipes to make during the holiday and enjoy this peppermint vodka.
