As you are putting together your holiday menu’s consider having a signature drink as well! These three cocktails give the feel and or taste of winter and can really jazz up your drink list.
White Pomegranate Mojito
1 cup lime juice
1/4 cup packed fresh mint leaves plus more for serving
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup white rum
1/4-1/2 cup coconut rum dependent on your taste
1 cup canned coconut milk
sparkling water for topping
pomegranate arils for serving
In a large pitcher, muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves until the leaves have broken down.
In a blender, combine the white rum, coconut rum, and coconut milk and pulse until smooth. Pour over the mint/lime sugar mixture and stir to combine. Chill until ready to serve.
To serve, divide ice among glasses and fill halfway with the mojito mix. Top with sparkling water, mint and pomegranate.
Salted Caramel White Russian
Salted caramel sauce
25ml (one shot) Salted Caramel Irish Cream
75ml (3 shots) of half and half (milk and cream)
Take the caramel sauce and use a teaspoon to slightly drizzle it in the glass, while slowly turning the glass so you get a nice swirled effect.
Fill the glass with ice.
Next, add your liquid ingredients to your cocktail shaker, along with a few cubes of ice. Shake well and strain in to the glasses. Garnish with a spring of rosemary, a bit of chocolate or even a candy cane! Perfection. I even sprinkled on a little salt flakes to complete the taste sensation!
Vanilla, Pear, and Vodka Cocktail
12 oz (1.5 cups) pear juice
6 oz vodka
1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
vanilla sugar, for rim
1 cup ice, plus more to serve over
Mix pear juice and vodka in a pitcher or shaker. Split open the vanilla bean, and scrape the seeds into the juice and vodka. Add 1 cup ice, then give it a good shake. Pour into cocktail glasses over more ice and serve with sugared rim. Makes 4 drinks.
