All signs point to a different holiday celebration this year. That should not steal the fun away from Christmas. You only have to think outside-the-box and play around with what you have.
Bring creativity to your holiday cocktails. Experiment with different ingredients and combinations. This Gingerbread Martini is a nice start. As long as it’s still drinkable when served, it probably qualifies as a cocktail.
Try different syrups. Change up the colors. For instance, a red cocktail fits right into the Christmas spirit. At the same time, experiment with various liquors and exotic ingredients.
This is your opportunity to try your hand at upscaling your holiday cocktail game. Indeed, why not create your perfect hand-crafted Christmas cocktail. Share the recipe too. We’d love to try it out also.
- 1 ½ oz Stoli Vanil
- 1 oz coffee liqueur
- 1 oz milk
