Candy Cane Cocktail

Got some candy canes left over from the holidays? Crush em up and use on this yummy Candy Cane cocktail that perfectly combines sweet fruit flavors with a touch of mint. This treat has been featured on the Martha Stewart Show and was created by Charles Corpion from The Four Seasons. If it good enough to impress them, I think it’s good enough for me too! This could be a great signature cocktail for any parties before the holiday season completely escapes us and a good way to toast to the near year right around the corner.

We wish everyone a happy and healthy 2013!
