December has officially started so I guess it is finally acceptable to go full on Christmas. However, you know me, and you’ve been reading my blog. I didn’t wait that long! Just after Halloween was over, I started posting Christmas recipes. And my latest is a candy cane vodka recipe with Prezzybox!
Prezzybox got in touch a few weeks ago for a Christmas post. There website has such a large range of gifts of all sorts. Whatever you want, whatever you need, you’ll find it. And I wanted to go about this collaboration in a different way than a gift guide or a review. I mean, what better way to review a product than actually use it, am I right?! The gift I picked is a gin infusion kit. You’ve read the title of this post. It is indeed about candy cane vodka, not candy cane gin.
But I did not feel like infusing gin with candy cane…
And I have past experience infusing vodka!
Which is how I got the idea for a candy cane vodka. Back at university, I infused Haribo pink strawberries in vodka for 24 hours before a flat warming and the result was insane! Christmas‘ main candy being candy canes, I decided to make candy cane vodka! It is the quickest and most simple recipe you’ll ever see but the kit from Prezzybox has everything you need to make it – a big infusing jar, 3 bottles, a funnel and gift tags (although I changed the cord to a more Christmassy one!)
A candy cane vodka recipe
-1L of vodka
-26 candy canes
1. Pour the vodka in a big jar.
2. Add the candy cane.
3. Leave for 24 hours until candy canes are fully dissolved.
4. Serve in shots or use for cocktails
The color of the final infusion will depend on the color of the candy cane you pick. Mine were white and red with dominance of white, hence the pink color. If you want the candy cane vodka to be red, you either need to go for red and white candy canes or add drops of red food colouring!
What do you think? Have you ever infused vodka before? What candy did you use and what result did you get? Will you try this candy cane vodka for Christmas? Or any party you have planned?
I hope you liked this recipe. Thanks for reading.
See you soon,
*This gin infusion kit is a gift from Prezzybox but all opinions are my own!
Even though vodka isn’t my favourite this looks so yummy! Sounds great to use for shots. This would also make a really great gift or secret Santa gift. Great post x
I’ve never infused vodka before but these look like super cute gift idea’s!
Oh my gosh this looks amazing! Not only that it’s really easy to make! I’m pretty sure I can get some vegan candy canes!

I love the simplicity of this, i’ve bookmarked this and will 100% be following this recipe closer to Christmas!
I am so excited for Christmas! Ooh, I haven’t heard of the candy cane vodka recipe before until now! I like the idea of it considering how it’s sweet and I’d be a sucker for the peppermint flavor. I am a sucker for how cute it is!! Thanks for sharing this recipe :).

That pink colour is so pretty! What a great flavour for Christmas! I’m not a huge fam of vodka but I know a lot of people who would be very interested in making this!
I am shook, this is amazing.. they drinks look so amazing! I will definitely be using this !! Great post !
Ah this looks amazing!! Definitely gonna give these a try, I adore the colour!!!
Oh wow, this is amazing! I bet it tastes delicious ?
I haven’t made any boozy gifts (yet) this year, but I did make homemade Limoncello and Spiced Arancello (orange version) last year, which went down well with those I gave them to!
Will be adding this one to my list to try!
This sounds absolutely amazing! Will totally be trying out soon! And I love your photos!
Beautiful photos! I’ll have to give this recipe a try for the holidays!
Omg, I love vodka and so this sounds AMAZING! xx
I have never tried infused vodka before but it looks amazing! I didn’t realise it was so easy to do! Now I am thinking about all the different kinds of sweets I could use haha! I am guessing you can use any? Your pictures are fab too! Great post! xx
This looks and sounds amazing! Pink vodka?! Yes please! I used to drink vodka as my ‘go-to’ spirit but I went off it for a while, this sounds like the perfect way to reintroduce it. Great recipe x
Now this sounds like the type of recipe I’d love to be making! ? I’m definitely bookmarking it so I can make it myself!
Well, it doesn’t get more festive than this!
I just bought some candy canes today – I will definitely be giving this a go soon! Cheers!
This is fab! Looks like killer shots, I’d be on my back haha.
I’ve infused my own gin before, it’s basically vodka with a ton of juniper berries and any other botanicals you feel like, with interesting results.

Such a great result – they look so festive and I’m sure they taste great too – they certainly look appealing. Thanks for sharing! xx

Oh my gosh!! This sounds insane and looks just like strawberry milk. I absolutely love the idea of candy cane flavour but I can’t say I’m the hugest fan of vodka but I’d be more than happy to try it out as it looks scrumptious 🙂 I’ve heard a lot of things about how nice Skittles vodka is so I’d love to do that myself one day!
Wow your photos are absolutely beautiful, so bright and colourful! I’ve never tried infusing my own alcohol, but I love flavoured vodka so I may try this – also as you say, perfect for Christmas!
Wow! This sounds amazing. I bet they are sweet though. I have made lots of different vodka infusions in the past. Basil, mint, lemon, orange, spiced orange, cherry, nothing as sweet at this though. I bet it tastes lovely.
This is Fab, I love homemade Christmas gifts. I made my little one an advent this year. Thanks for sharing. Mummythomas.blog xx
Omg this is awesome! Candy cane vodka? Absolutely lush!
Say what?!?!? Vodka is my go-to drink of choice and this sounds amazing. I am DEFINITELY going to be giving this one a try!

What a cute gift. I just love those bottles and the color of the drink.
Heck yes! I need to try some of this. I could see these being popular gifts as well. Plus it’s pretty.
This is super cool! It can be such a unique gift and I’m going to try!
using a peppermint candy cane probably makes for delicious peppermint martinis! I just might have to try this! But I think I’ll look for all red candy canes as this did look a bit like pepto bismol.
I have not infused vodka before but I would love to. I have -like others- soaked candy and fruit in vodka but have not done anything like what you have done. This is awesome and thanks for the instructions.
Wow! This looks super sweet yet yummy! Cant wait to try!
I don’t do vodka or any alcoholic drinks for that matter so I will take the candy cane and probably soak it in something fruity and let you know how I get on.
I’m sure these were a HIT! My mom loves Vodka lol Cute photos
Why did you tell me about this? I am eager to try this vodka and candy cane concoction.
OMG!!! How come I never thought of this?! I like Vodka and Candy Canes so this is perfect for me. I need to try this for the upcoming Christmas parties. Thank you for sharing the good stuff! <3
Really?! It must tastes great. It’s so simple to make. Gotta try this.
I am not a vodka fan but it really looks so cute and beautiful.
Don’t know how does it taste, but it looks extremely attractive. Will introduce to my friends.
Wet interesting vodka recipe. Not sure how it will taste cause I have never tried a candy cane.
I don’t take vodka but I seem to love yours. It looks so yummy with the candy cane infusion…I’d give it a try.
Awesome gift idea! It looks delicious. Need to find someone on my gift list who likes vodka.
This looks so yummy and fun! Great for parties for sure!
wow, i cant wait to try this , not much of an alcohol person but i will try this out
These look really cute! I’ll definitely be giving them a try. B x
Oh heck yeah!
I love this idea. My wife and I make gifts each year and are always looking for good ideas. This is something are definitely going to try 🥳👏
