Yield: 1 cocktail

 Time to Prepare: 10 minutes

 Ingredients:   2 oz. vanilla vodka, chilled 1 oz. white crème de cacao, chilled 1 oz. Peppermint schnapps, chilled  

 Rim: 3 oz. peppermint candy, crushed ¼ fresh lime 

 Optional garnish: small candy canes 

 Directions:   Place peppermint candy in a plastic bag and cover with a towel. Pound bag with a meat mallet or rolling pin until the candy is crushed into very small pieces. Transfer crushed candy pieces to a flat plate.  

 Run a small wedge of lime around the rim of a martini glass until it is very well moistened. Turn the martini glass upside down and place moistened rim onto plate of crushed peppermints. 

Turn the glass gently to ensure the entire rim is evenly coated.  

 Fill cocktail shaker with ice and add vodka, crème de cacao, and peppermint schnapps. Shake vigorously until thoroughly combined. Strain chilled liquid into a prepared martini glass and add a small candy cane, if desired. Serve immediately.
