Mixing It Up at Christmas

I’m the assigned mixologist this Christmas.  I’ve been searching for interesting but easy recipes.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go with a fruit theme for the day such as cranberry or apple or go with a liquor theme.  I finally decided it was safer to stick to the same liquor so bourbon is the winner.

XMAS Cocktail 3Morning

Espresso Martini – whipped cream bourbon, espresso (or strong coffee) & a splash of Bailey’s Irish Cream.  I tried this out today & it was delicious.  It can work in the am or as an after dinner drink.

Brunch

Champagne Bourbon Cocktail – vanilla bean simple syrup, bourbon and Prosecco or sparkling wine.  Everyone needs some bubbly on Christmas 😉

Evening

Blizzard – Lemon juice, simple syrup, cranberry juice and bourbon.  I’m ashamed to say I didn’t know bourbon & cranberry tasted so good together.
