Candy Cane Milk Shooters for the Kids

By Kelsey Banfield |

Candy Cane Shooters

I couldn’t help myself with these. I just loved the idea  of trying these out when we picked up our first box of mini candy canes the other week. I rimmed two glasses with crushed candy canes and used a candy cane as a swizzle stick. The candy cane turned the milk pink and gave it a sweet, minty taste that we all loved. My daughter found it to be the perfect minty treat after dinner. I loved that it was mostly milk with a hint of festive cheer!

Crush a few candy canes until they are dust and use them to rim two shot glasses. Fill each glass with milk and dip a candy cane in right before serving. Enjoy!

    Beautiful! Will try! I can almost smell the peppermint by looking at the photo. I bet this would work with soy milk too.
