Holiday Season Cocktails
Updated: Dec 20, 2019
I wanted to do two cocktails for this upcoming cold ass season we're about to take on.
*** Reminder, I am NOT nor have I ever been a bartender, mixologist or whatever you call a booze sammelier. I just like a good drank. Here are the ingredients for two drinks that will wow your guests, family or friends. I've also posted an IGTV for a play by play if you'd care to have a virtual ladies night and make them along side me.
Drink one: Caramel Apple Cider Sangria
Servings: one Pitcher
-64 oz Apple Cider
-1 bottle White Wine ( I went with a dry white so it wasn't as sweet)
- 10-20 oz Caramel Vodka (roughly 1/2 a fifth)
*** for the rim of your cup
Drink Two: Cranberry MANmossa
(by the glass)
- 1 shot Vodka
- 2 large squirts Lime Juice
- 2 Tbsp Homemade Cranberry
- fill remainder of glass with Champagne
Making your own Cranberry "sauce" is super simple.
24 oz cranberries washed and drained, add to 2 cups of apple juice, bring to a boil and wait for cranberries to start popping open. Then add 1 Cup maple syrup and 1 Cup sugar, mix well and let simmer for 20 minutes.
You now have a homemade cranberry simple syrup!
XOXO + Happy Holidays,
