Hello and welcome back to Blogmas Day 20, only five more days until Christmas. I hope you guys are getting ready to celebrate and have fun. This is for the older audiences, I want to show you some of my favourite holiday cocktails.
1 bottle of sweet red wine
1 bottle sparkling cran-apple cider
2 clementines, sliced thin, peel on
2 granny smith apples, cored and diced
1/2 cup pomegranate arils
1 cup cranberries sliced in half
Rosemary to garnish each glass
Mix wine, cider, and fruit in a large pitcher. Serve over ice and garnish with rosemary.
3 fresh raspberries
1-ounce heavy cream
Muddle raspberries in the bottom of a glass. Add ice. Pour cream, Chambord, and vodka over ice. Stir well to combine.
Jack Frost Cocktail
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup vodka or light rum
1/2 cup Blue Curacao
1/2 cup cream of coconut (not coconut milk)
3 cup ice cubes
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp water
shredded coconut for garnish
In a small microwave safe bowl, add sugar and water and mix. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, then microwave for 1 minute more. Sugar mixture should be thick but moveable. If sugar mixture is still too runny, microwave in 15-second increments until desired consistency is reached.
Add shredded coconut to a plate, separating the pieces so there are no large clumps. Using a spatula, dab the sugar mixture along the outside of the glasses near the rim, then roll glasses in the shredded coconut. Set glasses aside.
Add pineapple juice, vodka, blue curacao, cream of coconut, and ice cubes to a blender. Pulse until smooth, about 2-3 minutes.
Pour Jack Frost Cocktail into prepared glasses. Serve immediately.
I hope you enjoy these festive holiday drinks, let me know if you try any of them. See you next time!
