Winter Cocktails That Will Keep You In Good Spirits
As we head straight for the holiday season, you can put those summer spirit ingredients back on the shelf and grab the ones that will really make your heart grow this winter. Whether you’re planning on hosting friends and family for a festive feast or simply need a delicious cocktail to ease your mind after a stressful day of work, we’ve got you covered! There’s no need to waste any more time so let’s get right into it!
You’ve probably had a regular mimosa at a boozy brunch, but have you had one with a holiday twist? Instead of using orange juice, opt for peppermint schnapps and then top with champagne or prosecco. The key with this one is to like the rim of the glass with melted chocolate and crushed candy canes.
Dirty martinis are great most of the year but if you really want to get in the cold weather spirit, this one with a cookie twist will do the trick. In a shaker, add heavy cream, caramel vodka and cinnamon. Add ice and shake until cold and then serve in a martini glass topped with whipped cream and a cinnamon stick.
This recipe calls for coconut milk, tequila, triple sec and lime juice. Combine those ingredients with ice in a blender and blend until smooth. Dip glasses with sanding sugar and garnish with fresh lime and cranberries.
Take your normal whiskey sour recipe and give it a winter kick with cranberry and cinnamon. We suggest using fresh cranberries and bourbon and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
