What are some festive holiday cocktails?!

Question: What are some festive holiday cocktails!?
I am having a holiday party and I would like to have some delicious cocktails that are sort of holiday themed!. If anyone has some ideas besides the obvious, I would appreciate some suggestions :)Www@FoodAQ@Com

The Grinch

The Grinch, with its hideous appearance, is a repulsive creature!. So why create a cocktail inspired by that monster!? The Grinch’s color scheme actually looks appealing when carried by an alcoholic beverage!. The cocktail’s pale green base and red garnish bring a balance of elegance and mystery, which you will surely enjoy!.

the grinch

* 2 oz Midori
* 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
* 1 tsp sugar syrup
* 1 cherry


* mixing bowl
* cocktail shaker
* martini glass


1!. Pour the Midori, lemon juice and the sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker!.
2!. Mix the ingredients thoroughly!.
3!. Pour the shaker’s contents in a martini glass!.
4!. Place a cherry on the drink then serve!.

The blend of the drink’s green base, the red cherry and the contours of the martini glass create a sensuous combination with a pinch of Christmas!. As you can see, The Grinch is out to steal not only Christmas, but the definition of the Christmas spirit!.

Candy Cane Martini

Vodka is a pretty versatile drink, when it comes to the flavors you can incorporate!. Unconventional ingredients like chocolate and mocha can be easily turned into a luscious martini, when combined with vodka!. So is a candy cane-flavored martini possible!? Of course!

candy cane martini

* 1 1/2 oz vodka
* 1/2 - 1 tsp Peppermint Schnapps
* 1 oz club soda
* ice
* crushed candy canes


* cocktail shaker
* martini glass


1!. Put some ice in the cocktail shaker!.
2!. Once done, pour the vodka, Peppermint Schnapps, and the club soda inside the container!.
3!. Shake the shaker vigorously then pour its contents in a martini glass!.
4!. Top it off with crushed candy canes as garnish!.
5!. Serve!.

If you find the drink too sweet, you can add more ice!. Peppermint Schnapps has a strong minty flavor, so you should experiment first with the mixes before serving it to your friends!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
