Re: holiday cocktail drink

Do you want a minty one or a red one? Are you hosting a party?

Re: holiday cocktail drink

We were looking for something too-something minty but I couldn't find anything really easy that I could make pitchers of.

We did find Christmas Mudslides-didn't try it out yet because we bought the wrong ingredients but sounded good.

Re: holiday cocktail drink

I'm doing an alcoholic egg nog (or Coquito!) for our party. Also a Christmas Sangria - a bottle of Cran Raspberry, 2 bottles of Sweet Sparkling Wine, A couple of chugs of brandy, a Bottle of non-sparkling wine - a little OJ. Add Pomegranate Seeds, Kiwi Slices and some red and green apple slices.

Re: holiday cocktail drink

How about a White Cosmo? LOVE these!!!

1 1/2 oz vodka (I use Stoli Oranj)
1/2 oz grand marnier
1 oz lime juice
1 oz white cranberry juice
Dried Craisins or Frozen cranberrys.


In a shaker with cracked ice, combine the vodka, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and cranberry juice. Shake well.

Strain into a martini glass, garnish with the fruit, and serve at once.

Re: holiday cocktail drink

Heat some spiced wine over low heat, like Brotherhood Holiday Wine, garnish with a cinnamon stick.

I LOOOOVE this - it's actually become my new favorite drink of late! Specifically Muscato because it has such a nice natural sweetness that it balances the bitterness of the cranberry.
