The holidays are here, so it is time to break out the fancy glasses for family and friends to enjoy a nice drinks by the fireside. Celebrate the season with festive holiday cocktails. Finding the perfect drink for your holiday party can make it a memorable occasion. Here are some examples of great holiday drinks to try this season.
Mix 6 cups of 100% cranberry-raspberry juice, 6 cups of sparkling cranberry-flavored soda, 6 cups of champagne, and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract in a large bowl. Add a few scoops of raspberry sorbet and you have a festive bowl of punch that no one will want to pass up.
The Salty Tiger
This drink is a beer cocktail, so it is light on the alcohol, but heavy on taste! To make this fun and festive drink, pour a tablespoon of grapefruit juice into a bowl. Put a tablespoon of Kosher salt in a separate bowl. After dipping the rim of a glass into the grapefruit juice, follow by dipping it into the salt, and twist. Then, fill the glass half full with the Tiger Beer. Add grapefruit juice until the class is full and enjoy!
Candy Cane Cocktail
Fill a cocktail shaker with one shot of vanilla rum, one shot of white chocolate liqueur, one shot of peppermint schnapps. Shake with ice and pour into a martini glass. Make this extra festive by adding a small candy cane for decoration.
Whip 8 eggs in a blender for about 4 minutes. Add one can of condensed milk, 8-10 canned peach slivers, one teaspoon vanilla extract, and blend thoroughly. Slowly add two 8-ounce cups of rum as the other ingredients are blending. To garnish this, sprinkle cinnamon around the top of the beverage, or add cinnamon stick.
Holiday Beer Bread
For something to soak up all of the holiday cocktails, a festive beer bread always hits the spot. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and butter a loaf pan to set aside. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, 12 oz of Tiger Beer, and mix well. This will make a sticky batter. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and bake for 55 minutes. About three minutes before the bread is finished cooking, remove it from the oven, brush the top of the bread with 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and return it to the oven for the final three minutes.
These are some great recipes to enjoy during the holiday season. They can be used while entertaining, or just while having a quiet night at home with family.
