This cocktails if chock full of Citrus. Makes you feel like you’re in the middle of a drink Florida commercial if they had alcohol in them! All the citrus juices and liqueurs blend well together and it’s a great late afternoon or early evening drink.
Elegant and sophisticated in both looks and taste the Enlightened Martini is pretty amazing. We started by using organic Dry Fly® Gin, a light clean gin with a smooth taste and just the barest hint of juniper. This drink combines that with substituting the vermouth with another botanicals, Elderflower Liqueur. We used Thatchers® which is also organic for one of the smoothest takes on a martini we’ve had in a while.
Nothing says the holidays like a little sparkle! We made a kickin’ Devils Food Chocolate Martini and added chocolate stars and real editable gold flakes. (available on Amazon) This is a fun girly drink and one of the few that when you finish the drink well you have to eat the chocolate stars. Oh darn! Holiday cocktails should be fun and that’s just what this one is, fun.
The Cosmo or Cosmopolitan was a fixture on the bar scene as early as the mix 80’s. The drink was further popularized among young women by its frequent mention on the television program Sex and the City, where Sarah Jessica Parker’s character, Carrie Bradshaw, commonly ordered the drink when out with her girlfriends. The film adaptation made a reference to its popularity when Miranda asks why they stopped drinking them, Carrie replies “because everyone else started.”
If you like gingerbread you’ll like Cinnamon and Spice Gingerbread Martini. It is a fun holiday drink with a comfort food taste. We used this amazing, albeit expensive, maple syrup. There are times when using the best of something pays off. A very different unique cocktail that will be a hit at your holiday bash!
