Move over Cosmo, there's a new holiday-inspired cranberry cocktail in town. Shake raspberry liqueur, cranberry juice, and Smirnoff Cranberry Vodka with ice and garnish with three cranberries on a swizzle stick.
A twist on the traditional coffee-enhanced Mudslide, this high-class version calls for Godiva Chocolate Liqueur mixed with Irish cream and Vodka. We suggest blending with ice then topping with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
After you try this recipe, you'll realize eggnog is not just for the holidays. Mix Baileys Irish Cream and Bushmills Original Irish Whiskey with one whole egg, milk, and a dash of nutmeg. You've got dessert in a glass.
Legend has it Hot Toddys can give a good night's rest, shake rainy-day blues, and cure what ails you. We're not sure about those promises, but with George Dickel bourbon, cloves, and sugar, we're willing to give it a try.
Serve up elegance at your New Year's Eve bash with this Cosmo-inspired cocktail. Mix Cîroc Vodka with Champagne and cranberry juice, then add Grand Marnier, lime juice, and a twist of orange for added complexity.
