Our Favorites: Holiday Cocktail Recipes

We’d like to introduce our new series of blog posts, our favorites!

The holidays are in full swing and that can only mean one thing- time for holiday parties! Nothing is better than getting together with friends, old and new, and family you haven’t talked to all year. We decided to gather a list of our favorite holiday cocktail recipes and share them with you as our inaugural post.

First up is a Cranberry Orange Margarita, which is a delicious and refreshing cocktail, featuring one of my favorite Selzter brands- Spindrift.

  • 2 ounces silver tequila

  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1/2 ounce orange liquor or Cointreau

  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (to taste-the seltzer has no added sugar, hence why it’s a favorite!)

  • Cranberry Raspberry Spindrift (any brand will suffice though)

  • Ice

  • Coarse salt for rims

  • Fresh or frozen cranberries & orange peel for garnish

Add ice, tequila, orange juice, lime juice, Cointreau and sugar to shaker. Shake until cold. Pour into glasses over fresh ice, top with seltzer and garnish with berries and orange peel. Enjoy!

Next is a super yummy Christmas Sherbet Punch (which can easily be made as a mocktail for all the kiddos!)

  • 2 liter Hawaiian Punch

  • 2 liter Sprite

  • 46fl oz pineapple juice

  • 1 carton raspberry sherbet

Pour Hawaiian punch into 2 ice cube trays the night before. Save the remaining punch (this is optional but recommended). In a large bowl, pour punch, sprite, pineapple juice. Add punch ice cubes and raspberry sherbet. Let ice cubes and sherbet melt slightly to add more flavor

Stay Hydrated

Our very lovely DRH Team closed the store yesterday for a few hours to enjoy lunch and holiday cocktails.  We were celebrating Christmas, a successful 2015, lots of hard work, and toasting to 2016. 

So in the spirit of our celebrations and the season, I'll leave you with a festive wintry, blue holiday cocktail.

We aren't taking credit for the recipe- just passing on some essential holiday entertaining 'buzz.' (I couldn't help it.)

Enjoy!  Make yourself one or three and admire everything you've accomplished this year.
