Drink Recipe: Take A Trip Down “Candy Cane Lane” With Help From Van Gogh Vodka

When it comes to the flavors of the season, it seems that mint is somehow overlooked especially when it comes to cocktails. Well, prepare to have your minty fix thanks to Van Gogh Vodka’s “Candy Cane Lane” cocktail. The “Candy Cane Lane” is made using Van Gogh Blue Vodka and the mint flavor for this particular drink comes with the addition of White Crème de Menthe and Peppermint Schnapps. I’m personally not a huge peppermint fan, but this Lushworthy offering from Van Gogh Vodka might just make this peppermint pessimist a believer.


2-1/2 oz Van Gogh Blue Vodka

1 oz White crème de menthe

1/2 oz Peppermint schnapps


Splash of Grenadine

Peppermint candy for garnish


Add a dash of grenadine into the bottom of a chilled martini glass and set aside.  Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into the glass with grenadine to create a “swirl” effect.  Garnish with peppermint candy.
