Holiday Adult Beverages

Here are a few recipes for fun holiday drinks. Enjoy.

Guava pineapple juice and vodka. Yes, I did say guava pineapple. It’s delish. You’ll need Dole’s guava pineapple juice, the vodka of your choice, a pitcher, cute glasses to serve in and a garnish. I like citrus curls, pomegranate seeds and raspberries.  

Measure vodka into pitcher then pour in juice. Be careful here. The juice completely covers the taste of vodka. I recommend starting with a vodka 1 to juice 5 formula to begin with. Go to a 1 to 4 if you think you and your guests can handle it.  

Love eggnog especially with dark spiced rum.

You’ll need rum, eggnog, whip cream and cinnamon, and of course glasses to serve in. Again, know your guests as to how much rum to use. Here I use the finger formula. 1 finger of rum to 3 or 4 fingers of eggnog, according to your taste. Top off with whip cream and a dusting of cinnamon.                                                                                                               Purrrfect.

My other favorites are mimosas and poinsettias.


Mimosas are half orange juice and half sparkling wine. Easy. I like to garnish with pomegranate seeds.

Poinsettias are half cranberry juice and half sparkling wine and a dash of Cointreau. Use any champagne glass or flute. More pomegranate or an orange slice will garnish very nicely.    


So, this is a new to me treat.  It involves cookie crumbs,  salted caramel Baileys and a splash of  heavy cream. Moisten the edge of the glass and roll in the cookie crumbs flavor of your choice. pour a couple fingers of Baileys and splash in the cream.   O_My_Goodness. So good!         




Enjoy the Holidays and drink responsibly.
