Holiday Cocktail Ideas

Having your family and friends over for the holidays? Tired of the same ol egg nog, cold beer and wine? Here are a couple of ideas for holiday cocktails to get everyone in the cheerful spirit.

Bailey's Peppermint Cream
  • 1.5oz Bailey's with a hint of mint chocolate
  • 4oz Hot chocolate
  • Fresh whipped cream
  • Peppermint candy cane 

Pour the bailey's and hot chocolate into a coffee mug. Top with a scoop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with crushed candy cane on top. Garnish with a mint leaf. Enjoy

Gingerbread Apple Cocktail

  • 2oz Domaine de Canton
  • 1oz Vanilla vodka
  • 2.5oz Apple cider
  • A few drops of lemon juice
  • Orange zest
  • Agave Syrup

Line a chilled martini glass lightly with agave syrup on a dish followed by spiced graham cracker crumbs. Place all ingredients except for orange zest in a shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into glass. Freshly grate orange zest on drink and serve immediately. Enjoy
