Hi friends! We have listed our three favorite Christmas themed cocktails below, so try them out and let us know what you think.
Favorite Three Christmas Cocktails:
1) Eggnog Martini: This Christmas cocktail recipe puts a new spin on an old classic. Stir in your favorite brandy with either homemade or store-bought eggnog and ladle into glasses garnished with pumpkin-pie spice. If you’re feeling adventurous, try this homemade eggnog recipe.
2) Gin Fizz: Invented in New Orleans in 1888, this concoction has a distinctive frothy cap. In a cocktail shaker, combine 1 ounce gin, 3 dashes fresh lime juice, 3 dashes lemon juice, 3 dashes orangeflower water, 2 teaspoons superfine sugar, 1 large white egg, ¼ cup light cream, and ice. Shake vigorously and pour into your cocktail glass. Top with ¼ cup seltzer and garnish with ground cinnamon.
3) Berry Little Cocktail: Lend some festive fizz to your holiday bash with this light and bright drink. Dissolve ½ cup sugar into 1 ½ cups water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add a cup of fresh cranberries and simmer for 5 minutes or until softened before removing from the stove and letting cool. Strain your berries and place them on a tray in the freezer for at least 2 hours. For each drink you will need to chill 2 ounces of champagne, 1 ounce ruby red grapefruit vodka, 1 ounce cranberry juice, and 1 ounce black currant juice. Mix liquids in a champagne glass and garnish with a skewer of 4 or 5 frozen candied cranberries.
Have fun trying out these cocktails, and let us know what you think! #BarUp
