Hello, Rhubarbarians! Merry Christmastime!
If you're reading this, my guess is you are ready to either drink all the holiday pepperminty cocktails, OR you are hoping to make some rad holiday gifts. Yes?
This holiday inspired chocolate peppermint vodka recipe uses Andes Candy to infuse vodka and make it an amazing treat. It's a little spin on candy candy vodka, but with a chocolatey note!
After loving the cranberry orange bourbon that I made around Thanksgiving (and the cranberry orange manhattan), I needed to try something super Christmas-y. Would you believe I actually attempted pine tree infused vodka? Um... not my thing, but my husband loved it! I wanted something like a peppermint vodka, but not quite as strongly flavored. I received a box of these Andes Candies as a gift, and a light bulb just went off in my head. Yay!
How to make chocolate candy peppermint vodka:
Drop some candy into some vodka. Let it sit in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake every so often so that the chocolate dissolves.
After 24 hours, open the jar up, taste. If you like it, strain and drink! If you want it more pepperminty, let that chocolate dissolve even more.
Keep for yourself, or wrap a red bow around it and give as a gift!

- 8 oz vodka
- 10 Andes peppermint candies broken up into thirds or halves
Place your pieces of candy into a glass jar with tight fitting lid.
Pour the vodka into the jar and put the lid on tight.
SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! Shake some more, then shake some more. Leave on the counter and give a good shake every time you see it. 24 hours (or so) later, strain through a fine mesh strainer into a cup or jar.
This vodka is really pepperminty with a hint of chocolate candy. If you want more of a thicker liquor, add more candies and let them completely dissolve into the vodka for a few days.
Some ideas for this peppermint vodka recipe: peppermint white russian, boozy peppermint hot cocoa, chocolate peppermint vodka martini, maybe a peppermint latte!
