I’ve always been a good Girl Scout. “Be prepared”. (Or is that the Boy Scouts motto?) Either way, I’m always (usually) prepared. Like today for example. A friend stopped over on her way home from some holiday shopping. I offered her a cocktail and a snack while she relaxed and showed me some of her awesome last minute Christmas gift finds.
One of my favorite holiday cocktails–always festive, refreshing, and yummy–is a cape cod with a couple of smashed frozen cranberries and a sprig of fresh rosemary. Sugared rim is an option.
1 shot Montana Silver Vodka
2 shots Ocean Spray Cranberry juice
1 shot Sprite (or other fizzy sweet drink)
6 smashed frozen cranberries
Put all ingredients in a shaker with about 1/2 cup of crushed ice. Pour into your favorite festive cocktail glass and garnish with a fresh rosemary sprig
Add some Boursin soft cheese flavored with shallot and chive on some freshly warmed baguette bread and we had ourselves an impromptu holiday gathering!
