Call me crazy, but, in my world after Halloween.. THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE!
Also in my world.. most things are better with a good cocktail.
I used to be a bartender..so I consider myself a professional drink mixer and consumer of the drinks.
That being said I wanted to share a couple of my favorites with you, including one for the kids.
*Apple Pie* (this is my favorite)
1 ounce – Vanilla Vodka (I prefer Stoli)
1 ounce – Fire Ball
4 ounces – Apple Cider
Mix ingredients with ice or mix together and pour over ice. Your preference. If you want to get fancy, garnish it with a cinnamon stick and rim the glass with brown sugar!
*White Christmas Martini*
2 ounces – Vanilla Vodka
2 ounces – White Chocolate Liqueur
1 ounce – White Creme de Cacao
1 ounce – half and half
Shake with ice and strain into martini glass.. or if you are like me .. a solo cup 😉
Open bottle, pour into glass and enjoy. Repeat as necessary!
For the kids:
*Holiday Shirley Temple*
1/4 cup – OJ
3/4 cup – Sprite
2 Tbsp – Grenadine
Mix the OJ and Sprite together. Pour into glass, then drop the grenadine in let it drop to the bottom. Garnish with a cherry!
