Hello and welcome to Best Holiday Themed Cocktails 2022. Let’s explore Cranberry Mimosas, Espresso Martinis and more. Cheers to discovering festive cocktails to share and enjoy now and throughout the year! Please drink responsibly.
I am ready for 2023. No resolutions set yet, just really wanting a New Year. Don’t get me wrong, I will be putting the wrong year on everything the first month or so and yelling at myself about it but… I am ready for 2023.
Choose the glass you desire. I am not a small Champagne flute fan. They are small for me and a bit awkward to hold, so I went with a red wine glass. Sturdy stem and able to hold more. Add 2 ounces cranberry juice, 2 ounces pineapple juice and 2 ounces orange juice. Mix. Top off with champagne, the amount is up to you.
The wine glass allows for more champagne, just saying! Hint, Hint. Wink, Wink! Team more bubbles or Team less bubbles? Champagne flute always for champagne or does it depend on your mood?
Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces vodka, 2 ounces coffee liqueur, 2 ounces espresso and 1/2 ounce simple syrup. Cover and shake shaker until it becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted. Strain ingredients into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with peppermints to add a bit more holiday!
This is the perfect cocktail to get the party started, or to keep it going! The amount of espresso used depends on how long the music will play! I vote lots of espresso. Cheers!
Fill mug with 2 ounces Bourbon, 1 ounce rum spice honey and 1 ounce lemon juice. Top off with hot water. I used 4-5 ounces hot water. Stir well so the honey is well mixed with the other ingredients. Garnish with lemons as desired.
It’s the colder temperatures pick me up for anytime of year. I did enjoy this amazing cocktail while sitting on my couch, wrapped in my warm fuzzy blanket, watching Holiday movies. Share your favorite Holiday movie in the comments. It snowed here yesterday so, I have a feeling it will be getting colder and colder. Cheers to colder weather and hotter cocktails.
Pumpkin Pie Martini
Add 2 ounces vodka, 2 ounces spiced rum, 1 ounce pumpkin puree, 1 ounce maple syrup, 1 ounce heavy cream and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover and shake until shaker becomes frosty and most of the ice has melted. Strain ingredients into chilled Martini glass. Top with whipped cream.
I had some left over pumpkin puree so I thought, Pumpkin Pie in a glass. Let me know what you think of this one?! Or are you over all things pumpkin?
