The month of December makes me think about parties. And parties make me think about food… and cocktails. There are so many festive cocktail recipes out there that I just had to share a few of them with you in today’s Friday Five.
The folks over at Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen know their coffee, but they also know how to put together a killer cocktail. This tasty cocktail only has three ingredients but makes quite the statement. You could even make a non-alcoholic version by leaving out the Bailey’s if you wanted, but who would want to do that?
When my best friend first told me about Jack Daniel’s Winter Jack I was intrigued. We tried it on my last trip to see her and we both really liked it. The very next day I started looking for cocktail ideas that this could be used for. This was one of the first I came across and the one I’m most excited about trying.
I’ve had a couple martinis where they filled a glass with cotton candy, pour some booze over it, and then you ended up with a sugary sweet cocktail. Fun right? Well these take fun to a whole new level! Just fill some plastic ornaments with cotton candy and then when you are ready to serve, pour in some vodka. Easy and super cute!
Of course I HAD to include a peppermint cocktail on this list. It is pretty and festive! In addition to making a fun cocktail, you can get out any pent up holiday stress when you beat the heck out of the peppermints 🙂 If you wanted to get really girlie (I mean festive), you could even had a drop of red food coloring to make it pink.
I love that this cocktail is green! It is also something that could be easily made by the punch bowl OR non-alcoholic for the kiddos.
I hope this list inspires you to have some fun with your cocktails this season or helps with your party planning. I know I will be trying out a few of these myself in the coming weeks.
