Christmas Cocktails

Our weather forecast here in the mountains of Upstate NY says we will reach a high of 67 degrees tomorrow....on Christmas Eve. 

Are you kidding me?

Where's my white Christmas?

I think in light of the weather our Christmas Eve Cocktails will be by the outside firepit on the deck. 

Because, hello? SIXTY SEVEN DEGREES!

On Christmas Eve. 

I just can't. 

So, instead of a hot beverage on Christmas Eve, we're going to switch things up this year. 


A nice frosty Tuscan Pear Cocktail with ginger sounds heavenly!


As does this Pomegranate Vodka Gimlet  with fresh lime. 


Sweet Paul created this White Russian with Toasted Marshmallow Garnish which sounds like such a treat - dessert in a glass, anyone?


Sweet Paul keeps the party going with this Norwegian Forest Cocktail  - mmmmm those berries, rosemary, and lime sound refreshing on a HOT winter's day! Ahem. 


If you have some more berries leftover how about some Jingle Jangle Punch? 


 Or mix yourself up a Merry Maple Margarita for a twist on a summer classic. 


This Caramel Apple Sangria would be fabulous for a crowd...if you feel like sharing. 


And for a non-alcoholic crowd pleaser how about this Cranberry Cider Punch from How Sweet Eats. 


For 20 more holiday cocktail ideas why don't you head over to Swanky Recipes - there are some terrific ideas on that site I might just have to work my way through over the holiday period!

Sounds like a plan. 

It's tough work but somebody's got to do it!

Cheers!

  3. So many yummy drinks...the white Russian with toasted marshmallow sounds wonderful.
    67° is crazy for that part of the country! We are only going to hit about 54° in east/central Kansas. It is supposed to be 68° in Vermont where my siblings still live...that is more like Christmas in Phoenix, which I very much miss.
    Wishing you and your daughters a very Merry Christmas!
