We had such a great time last week with our Glam Gift Guides that we’re back to share our most fabulous holiday inspired cocktails. Did you miss out on the Glam Gift Guides? You can find the entire line up here – all in one place for your perusing pleasure.
I find that my taste for a good cocktail increases exponentially during The Holiday Season – that period from Thanksgiving week to New Years Day. Since you know I’ve never turned down a cocktail (drink responsibly, friends!) it was SO hard to pick one to share with you. Especially one just for the holidays! Rather than try to reinvent the wheel or get all complicated (Kentucky Rose style complicated) I’m going with one of my favorite standbys.
There are several variation out there that involve adding cointreau or triple sec – even bourbon! I like mine simple and clean.
Fill your champagne flute 3/4 full of cold, crisp bubbles (champagne, prosecco – just not something cheap, please!) and top off with a splash of cranberry juice (or cranberry cocktail if you like it sweeter). Sometimes I add a spritz of lime – but this girl – she’s good on her own!
Perfect for wrapping presents, catching up with old friends or even Christmas morning brunch. It’s really just perfect.
Need a recipe for a crowd? Try this Spiced Cranberry Prosecco Punch that I served at my Halloween Favorite Things Party. It’ll make your skirt fly up…
