Step 1:
Place peppermint candy in a plastic bag and cover it 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.

Step 2:
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 a plate of crushed peppermints. Turn the glass gently to ensure the entire rim is evenly coated.

Step 3:
Fill a 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.  Your guests are sure to love this peppermint vodka martini!
