Anyone have a special alcoholic holiday cocktail (martini, mixed drink, punch etc) that is festive either in taste or in color?
Cranberry juice, 7-up or sprite and vodka (to your taste or % mix perferance)
i find mine at www.mixed-drinks.com
Apple juice with cinnamon schnapps is a very good holiday drink. And of course there's always eggnog. Here are two recipes that are very good. Christmas Punch and Hot Buttered Rum.
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups orange juice
2/3 cup lemon juice
1 (4 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, with juice
1 fluid ounce triple sec liqueur
1 (750 milliliter) bottle light rum
1 orange, sliced into rounds
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks
1 liter carbonated water
1 In a punch bowl combine sugar, orange and lemon juice, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add cherries, triple sec, light rum, orange slices, lemon slices, and pineapple chunks. Set for 1-2 hours to allow flavors to blend.
2 Add carbonated water and ice just before serving.
Hot Buttered Rum
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 pound light brown sugar, packed
1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
1 In a large bowl cream the butter and the sugars together until smooth. Add the softened ice cream and mix until a creamy consistency is obtained. Transfer this to a freezer container with a tight fitting lid. Place in the freezer for up to 1 month.
2 To Serve: Place a heaping 2 tablespoons of the frozen mix in a highball glass or coffee mug. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons dark rum. Pour over the mix 6 ounces of boiling water and stir until the mixture is melted. Sprinkle top with cinnamon or nutmeg and serve forth!
Just had this at a party--was great.
2 large bottles Sprite
1 cup sugar
1 package kool-aide--they used the Island Twist
12oz lemonade frozen concentrate
Stir, garnish with 2 packages frozen raspberries
Vodka as desired....the Berry favored is supposed to be good in this..we just added the cheap stuff and it still was very good.
