Festive Holiday Drinks

One of my favorite things to do around the holidays is to host friends at my apartment.  I’ve had all kinds of fun little touches in the past (last year’s post) and I have a new holiday idea that you’re sure to enjoy!  One of the easiest solutions to dealing with the holiday season stress is with a fun and festive cocktail.  Here are a few new recipes for you to try this year:

Spiked Caramel Apple Cider

Spiked Caramel Apple Cider

Spiked Caramel Apple Cider:

1 oz. Pinnacle Caramel Apple Vodka

1 oz. Apple Schnapps

For the rim, crush up red and green peppermints and dampen with water then dip the shot glass into the mix!

Shake the ingredients together and pour into shot glass.

 

 

 

Godiva Chocolate Peppermint Shots

Godiva Chocolate Peppermint Shots

Godiva Chocolate Peppermint Shots:

1 oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur (or you can use White Chocolate Liqueur)

1 oz. Peppermint Schnapps

For the rim, crush up red peppermints or candy canes and dampen with water then dip the shot glass into the mix!

Shake the ingredients together and pour into shot glass.

 

Cheers!!!

(And thanks to my Aunt Susi for the ideas!)

Friday Fiesta: Pop Fizz Clink

On Wednesday, I had a group of girlfriends over to have Cocktails, Champagne and to celebrate the Holidays before everyone starts their travels.  My sister was in town (thank God because she was such a big help) which made it extra fun.

I’m so lucky to have such wonderful girlfriends in my life- they truly are incredible.  Here’s a look at some of the party!  Happy Holidays!

Here's the Invite that I made and sent out (I have a hobby in making easy PDF files)
