The Genuine Candy Cane Martini

serves 1 large or 2 small martini's

2 ounces infused Candy Cane Vodka (recipe to follow)
2 ounces DiSaronno Amaretto
2 ounces International Delight French Vanilla Creamer
Crushed candy canes for rimming the glass
Peppermint stick or candy cane for garnish

Prepare a martini glass by dipping rim of glass in a shallow dish of candy cane vodka or other liquid of choice.  Transfer to a shallow dish of crushed candy canes, gently spin in dish until coated.  **If you are rimming with large chunks, try brushing a thicker substance such as corn syrup on glass and then gently pressing candy canes onto glass.  Set aside.

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake to combine, strain out ice and pour into prepared martini glass and garnish with a candy cane.  Serve and enjoy!

Infused Candy Cane Vodka
10 full size candy canes, broken in bite size pieces
8 oz whipped cream vodka

In a medium size resealable glass jar combine candy canes and vodka.  Allow to sit for about 4 hours until candy canes are most or completely dissolved.  Strain infusion through a fine mesh strainer to remove any lingering candy cane pieces.  Use as desired.
