These decorative candy cane holiday shots capture the festivities of the winter season with flavor infused from candy canes. The staple Christmas candies are used to make homemade peppermint flavored vodka that has an pastel pink color that is given off from the candies incorporating with the liquor. The festive drinks are ideal to serve at winter parties or soirees to guests.

Candy canes are a traditional sugar treat for the season that are often seen used in baking dishes. This recipe by Oh Bite It! creatively uses the candies to flavor vodka to a minty taste. The candy canes are left to ferment in jars of vodka for several hours. As the red dye leaves the candy it flavors the vodka a festive pink hue. The vodka can then be served in shot glasses rimmed with crushed candy canes for garnish.
