It's that wonderful time of year for entertaining and friends and family to gather. I think it is always nice (and easy) to have a holiday cocktail that is ready to go for such occasions. Last year I posted the Poinsettia Cocktail. This year is the Candy Cane Martini (and a second just as delicious!)
Candy Cane Martini
1 oz. Strawberry Liqueur
4 dashes White Crème de Menthe
2 oz. Cranberry Juice
1 Candy Cane, crushed, for garnish or mini candy cane or peppermint candy
Rim a martini glass with water and crushed candy cane or simply hang a mini candy cane off the rim of the glass or float a peppermint candy. In a shaker, combine other ingredients and ice. Strain and pour! (Mix a batch ahead of time and shake as needed.)
Festive ProseccoAnother favorite is even simpler. Mix one bottle of Prosecco and one cup of pomegranate juice. Garnish with pomegranate seeds. Pour into festive flutes or holiday stemware. Simply Delicious!
