The Candy Cane is a fun holiday cocktail that is simple, sweet, and the epitome of our favorite flavors of the season.

The mix is interesting, beginning with a base of berry-flavored vodka on top of which peppermint and chocolate are piled. We cannot forget the sweet grenadine or the cream, which round out the unique layers quite wonderfully.

If you like, skip the splash of soda, though you will find it adds a nice little sparkle and brings a lightness to what can be a rather heavy drink.
