This is what it looks like when you add in the candy. It will dissolve if it is not crushed, but it takes longer. I suggest using only the red and white canes, as the green dye does not make a great color when mixed with the red. You can use the same bottle the vodka came in, but you may need to remove some vodka as the candy will displace it. You can also add the mix to a new bigger bottle or 2 smaller bottles. Bottles do not need to be sterilized first, but should be cleaned with hot water etc. Now simply print out your labels and add them with double sided tape to the bottle.
I also made up a nice little hang tag with drink suggestions that will fit over the bottle neck. As an after though I laminated my labels with some stick self-laminating sheets I got at an office supply store. That way if the bottle has drips it will not mess up the label. After all there is a good chance this bottle may survive until next Christmas. ;)
