Default Holiday Cocktail Recipe Ideas

Here are a few holiday recipes I’ve pulled together to give a try. They’re all very different but relatively simple so they’re perfect for mixing up at holiday parties. Just a couple ideas for you if you’re planning a holiday party as well.

French 75: (a classic w/ a refreshing champagne topper)

1 oz. Beefeater gin
1/2 oz. lime juice
1 tsp sugar
3 oz. Perrier Jouet Champagne

Shake the gin, lime juice and sugar with ice cubes. Strain and pour into a Champagne flute. Pour Champagne on top, and garnish with a lemon twist.

Café Mocha: (an easy-to-fix drink that will impress)

2 oz Leblon Cachaça
½ oz Kahlua
2 oz half & half
1 oz chocolate syrup
shot of espresso

Add all ingredients into a shaker filled with crushed ice and shake sharply. Strain into a frosted martini glass, and garnish with a sugared rim and three coffee beans.

Mistletoe Martini: (perfect to share w/ your mistletoe mate)

2 oz. OVAL Vodka
2 oz. orange juice
3 oz. cranberry tea
3/4 oz. lemon juice
3 tsp sugar

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into two chilled cocktail glasses. (serves two, of course)

Mata Hari Liquid Strudel: (for the adventurous Absinthe-lovers)

1 oz. Absinthe Mata Hari
3 oz. Tree Top Butter Rum Cider

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a small wedge of lime.
