SANTA’S COUGH MEDICINE
– 1 Bottle of Trader Joe’s Cranberry Cocktail (they have a sparking version that makes a good cocktail!
– 1 Bottle of Prosecco
– 1 Raspberry Sherbert (just one carton should do)
– Limes / Rosemary for Garnish
Combine all the above ingredients in to large punch bowl! I like to add to the sherbet one scoop at a time over the course of the party! You can easily make this non-alcoholic by not adding the process!
This is a simple and fun recipe that can be enjoyed by all! I love using this one through the entire holiday season (i.e. Thanksgiving to NYE) cause why not? You can certainly play around with the garnishes for different flavorings or colors!
THE HOLIDAY MULE
– 1/2 oz of Simple Syrup
– 1 1/2 oz of Gin or Vodka
– 2 oz of Chilled Ginger Beer (also sold at Trader Joe’s)
– Cranberries / Mint for garnish
Combine simple syrup, cranberry juice, and gin or vodka. Pour over ice and stir – top with ginger beer and stir again. Serve each cocktail garnished with mint and sugared cranberries, if desired. In all honestly, this is a basic Moscow mule, which is always a crowd favorite, but dress it up with some holiday garnish for a twist!
