Well, we are halfway through the wonderful holiday week. It always seems to fly by. Have you had your fill of Christmas cookies, food and drinks yet? I love to enjoy every second of this festive season. Our farm market has officially closed for the winter months and now we can enjoy some much needed family time and rest.
My week has been filled with family, fun times, a little merriment and a LOT of laughter. I always host Christmas Eve at our home. Each year, I try to serve a signature cocktail on Christmas Eve. This year, my family was lucky because I had two holiday drinks to choose from. Hiccup. One was the Peppermint Patty Chocolate Martini which I shared with you last week and the other I am calling a Jingle Juice Cocktail.
I am a fan of fruity drinks and this one fits the bill. Cherry vodka takes center stage to create a base for this jolly festive drink. The recipe is versatile too. Serving a large crowd? The recipe is easily adaptable and can be made in a pitcher. Even though Christmas is past, it doesn’t me we have to stop celebrating. This Jingle Juice Cocktail would be perfect for New Years Eve. Heck, you can even disregard the name and serve it any time during the year.
Cheers! Happy New Year!
