Sip sip, hooray! Cheers to the holidays! ✨
Are you going out or staying in this holiday season? With the craziness of having four kids, we’ll be staying in over here! That means I’ll be on drink duty, so I’ve been thinking of a few ideas to whip up for those who are visiting. This season is filled with sweets (for me anyway), so cocktails are the perfect place to reduce any extra sugar. If you need a last-minute Christmas or New Year’s cocktail recipe, check out these four fun drinks to make happy hour a little bit healthier!
2 1/2 oz of pure cranberry juice
2 oz white rum
2 oz light tonic water
1/2 a lime – cut into wedges
A few sprigs of fresh mint
1 – 2 tsp honey (local local local!!!)
To the bottom of a glass, add fresh mint, a few lime wedges, and honey. Muddle away!
Add in ice, cranberry juice, and white rum. Give it a stir – feel free to strain even though a classic mojito isn’t, I like mine strained!
Top with tonic water. Garnish with cranberries and a lime wedge! Enjoy 🙂
1 bottle of strawberry kombucha
A few fresh strawberries – chopped
A few sprigs of fresh basil – thinly sliced
1 shot of vodka
In a glass, muddle together some strawberries and basil.
Add in some ice and vodka. Stir! Strain if you’d like.
Top with strawberry kombucha.
Garnish with a strawberry slice and enjoy!
1 shot of vodka
1/4 cup pomegranate juice
Splash of orange juice, fresh-squeezed
Fresh rosemary sprig
1 lime – sliced
Optional – honey
Add your vodka, pomegranate juice, and orange juice over ice. Top with club soda and stir.
Garnish the top with pomegranate seeds, a rosemary sprig, and lime slices!
Optional – add a splash of honey for a sweeter touch. Enjoy 🙂
A few cinnamon sticks
Fill your champagne flute with as much champagne as your heart desires!
Top off with pure pear juice. Stir with a cinnamon stick and drop it in your drink.
These four recipes will be on repeat all holiday season at my house. I think my favorite is the Strawberry Kombucha + Basil. Which was your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
