Candy Cane Infused Rum

Last spring we infused our first batch of Strawberry Rum and loved it, so as the holidays rolled around, we began thinking of infusing rum with a holiday taste, such as Candy Cane.  We tried it out and found it’s easy to put together and if you divided it into small 8 oz. mason jars with lids, would make great little gifts for your rum drinking friends. Just add a ribbon with a candy cane and maybe a recipe and voilà!

Talk about getting into the holiday spirit(s)!

Candy Cane Infused Rum
(makes 2 cups of rum although quantities can easily be increased)

2 cups of white rum (we used Bacardi)
15-20 small candy canes
(we used all 20 and the result was very pepperminty. Use less if you want just a hint of peppermint.)
Glass jar with a lid

Arrange the candy canes on the bottom of the glass jar. Add the rum, then seal the jar with the lid. Gently shake every once in a while. When the candy canes have dissolved, the rum is infused. Ours took only about 12 hours. The finished product is a nice light red color and is good for sipping or could be used in some holiday recipes.

  1. Wonder if you could infuse a Dark & Stormy? Add fresh ginger to the rum to infuse. When ready, serve the rum with Club Soda and slice of lime.
