Time to drink festive holiday beverages! Yee haw! I always make sure I have red wine, white wine, and some Christmas beers at our parties...see exhibits A and B...
And I usually make a special holiday cocktail. Last year I made cranberry mojitos that were awesome.
This year I'm going to try the EGGNOG MARTINI recipe from Skinny Scoop.
2 oranges, sliced
1/4 c. pomegranate seeds or raspberries
1 2-liter bottle Sprite or ginger ale
2 bottles sparkling grape juice
3 T. sugar
1 c. diced fresh pineapple
1 c. pomegranate juice
In punch bowl, dissolve the sugar in the pomegranate juice. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Serve over ice. You can substitute white wine or champagne for the ginger ale if you want to make an "adult" version of this recipe.
I also want to try this delicious-looking recipe for a GINGERBREAD MARTINI from My Recipes. It includes ginger liqueur, crushed gingersnaps, vanilla liqueur, coffee-flavored rum, and whipping cream. OH YEAH!
And finally, a party just isn't complete until you've made a Martha Stewart recipe, right?
I like Martha's cute little recipe for a Berry Little Cocktail, which includes cranberries, Charbay ruby red grapefruit vodka, Champagne, cranberry juice and black currant juice. Festive for the holidays!
Well, I hope this post has given you some inspiration for your holiday alcoholic beverages. Let me know if you have any favorites!
