Happy Yule! Christmas is hours away and this week has been a whirlwind of work, shopping, chores, cooking, and more. I’m now on vacation until January. Time to relax and unwind.
Now, I know there’s a crazy blizzard happening in the midwest and backeast, but it’s actually really nice in SoCal right now, so I decided on mixing something tropical and Christmassy and came up with the Cranberry Mint Martini.
1/2 cup Cranberry juice 1/2 cup Vodka 1-1.5 oz. Peppermint Liqueur
This refreshing holiday cocktail is so crisp and clear, you can see right through it.
Show up to the virtual Christmas party with a visually stunning drink, I call, the Elder-Cranberry Margarita! Let them drink all the eggnog, while you sip this cherry red margarita on the rocks instead. With only four ingredients, it’s a simple yet festive holiday drink. Cheers!
1/2 cup. Cranberry Juice 1oz. Tequila 1/2 oz. Triple Sec 1/2 oz. Elderflower Liqueur (St. Germain)
Optional Garnish: Salt w/red food coloring for rim
If the Elderflower is too sweet for you, you can leave out or use a tad bit more tequila to balance out the flavors.
