My Favorite Christmas Cocktail

Dec 11, 2017

Most of you know I'm an avid wine drinker, so much so that I list wine tasting on questionnaires that ask me about my hobbies. I have to admit that all of this holiday celebrating has me a little wine tired right now. I've always loved the look of a martini or pretty mixed drink, but not the taste. I found a few Christmas cocktail recipes online to try, but they were way too strong for me. I modified one a bit to come up with something that isn't overly sweet and has just a little kick of alcohol to it.

Christmas Cocktail Recipe

2 oz. Vodka

2 oz Cherry Brandy

4 oz Cranberry Juice

Half of a fresh squeezed lime

Mix ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a martini glass. 

Optional-I garnished mine with red sugar and a lime since that's what I had on hand. Other options are sugared cranberries and/or a sprig of rosemary.
