Well the weather outside is FRIGHTFUL....

on

Soooo we might as well drink! BAHAHAHA
BrRrRrR hope you are all staying warm on this chilly Tuesday! I cannot believe how cold it has dropped.. Around -30 degrees for all of those lucky people not in the second coldest city in the world right now...  Really makes me in the Christmas spirit though! Last night James and I started putting up some Christmas decorations and were having some festive drinks.. 
How morbid is this? HEHEHE... We had a few casualties from putting away the decorations last year... Must have been in a rush to box it all up..
EGG NOG MARTINI
One of my favorite holiday drinks.. YUM! Here is the recipe:
2 oz. eggnog
1 oz. vodka
1 oz. amaretto
Shake with ice and serve :)


CANDY CANE MARTINI 

Things You’ll Need

  • Vanilla vodka
  • White crème de cacao
  • Peppermint schnapps
  • Peppermint candy
  • Martini glasses
  • Ice
  • Shaker

Assembling the Candy Cane Martini

  1. In a shaker, combine the ice, 3 ounces of vanilla vodka, 3 ounces of white crème de cacao and two ounces of peppermint schnapps.
  2. Shake the drink vigorously until well mixed.
  3. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with a peppermint candy. (As the peppermint candy dissolves, the drink will take on a pink hue.)
  4. Serve to the guests. This recipe yields two cocktails for holiday party guests.
NUTCRACKER
1.5 oz. vodka
0.5 oz. amaretto
0.5 oz. white creme de cacao
Crushed with Butterfinger rim!!! YUM! 
 Garnish with maraschino cherry.
*** This one was my favorite *** 

 AUTUMN SPICE
1 oz. vodka
2 oz. sparking apple juice
0.5 oz. lemon juice
0.5 oz. simple syrup
Garnish with cinnamon stick and apple slice, serve in a chilled martini glass 
Combine in a shaker with ice, but shake gently. The sparkling apple juice is carbonated, and giving it a too-vigorous shake could result in a messy explosion. 

THE SNOW JOB COCKTAIL!
 2 oz. pear schnapps
1 ounce half and half cream
A pinch of cinnamon
1. Fill a shaker with crushed ice. Pour in all ingredients but cinnamon.
2. Shake well, and pour into an old fashioned glass.
3. Garnish with cinnamon and a small straw 

CUPPA GOOD CHEER
1.5 oz. SKYY Infusions Cherry
0.5 oz. white creme de cacao
4 oz. Hot Cocao
1 oz. half n' half cream
Whipped cream
Maraschino Cherry
 Combine all ingredients into a holiday mug and top with whipped cream, red sprinkles and a Maraschino Cherry.

Christmas Sour
2 oz. Midori (my favorite liqueur!)
1 oz. limoncello
2 oz. sour mix
Garnish with maraschino cherry... Reminds me of Rudolph's nose!

HOPE THESE WARMED YOU UP A BIT! BOTTOMS UP :)
