Holiday Cheer
By Deirdre Cooper

 

 

We had so much fun putting together this column last year (last year!?), we thought it would be fun to continue the cocktail theme with a new batch of recipes for this holiday season. It is a tough job, but someone has to do it.
 
We have included two sangrias, a cold white and a warm red both perfect for the season. Also, a lovely Gingerbread Hot Chocolate, suitable for children, as well as a Gingerbread Eggnog, suitable for adults. The Nutcracker cocktail features almond milk for those sensitive to dairy.
 

Cranberry Mimosa
 

 

This is a new take on the classic Mimosa. Still as refreshing, but festive for the holidays in the colors of the holiday.
 
1 lime, halved
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup cranberry juice
1 bottle champagne or Prosecco
12 fresh cranberries
Small sprigs fresh rosemary
 
Rub champagne flutes with lime and dip in sugar. Pour 1/4 cup cranberry juice into each glass and top with champagne or Prosecco. Thread cranberries and rosemary sprigs on toothpicks and garnish mimosas.
 

White Wine Sangria
 

 

There is something so welcoming about walking into a party and seeing a lovely cocktail at the ready and no bartending necessary.
 
1 bottle of dry white wine
1/2 cup ginger liqueur
2 cups sparkling apple cider
 
Combine all in a tall pitcher and top with cut up apples and pears which add just the right amount of holiday color, and float a slice of lemon or two on top. Instant party!
 

Mulled Red Wine Sangria
 

 

Mulled wine generally refers to red wine which is heated with various spices and served warm. This is a version which incorporates the warm wine with citrus fruit for a refreshing winter beverage.
 
1 bottle dry red table wine
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup brandy
3 tablespoons sugar
1 thinly sliced orange
1 thinly sliced lemon
 
Combine wine, juice, brandy and sugar in a medium saucepan and heat until sugar is dissolved. Add the orange and lemon slices and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve warm in heat resistant glasses.
 

The Nutcracker Cocktail
 

 

This is a recipe for two cocktails. Frangelico is an Italian liqueur with a hazelnut flavor.
 
6 oz almond milk
2 oz vodka
4 oz Frangelico liqueur
Whipped cream and grated nutmeg garnish
 
Shake almond milk and liquors in cocktail shaker with ice. Garnish in glasses with whipped cream and nutmeg.
 

Gingerbread Eggnog
 

 

You can make your own eggnog, but store bought will make this easier and faster. This is such an elegant presentation for a special evening.
 
1 tbsp cinnamon sugar
1 cup vodka
2 tbsp molasses, plus more for drizzling
1 cup eggnog
1 cup Kahlua (a coffee liqueur)
Pinch ground ginger
 
Wet the rims of four cocktail glasses and dip n cinnamon sugar. In cocktail shaker filled with ice add eggnog, vodka, Kahlua, molasses and ginger and shake to combine.
 
Pour into rimmed glasses, top with whipped cream and drizzle with molasses before serving.
 

Gingerbread Hot Chocolate
 

 

Perfect for a treat for the kiddies before bed or before opening gifts and perfect for the kid in all of us. It is rich and warm and comforting and worth the effort.
 
6 cups milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
1/4 cup sugar
2 tblsp molasses
3 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
7 oz chopped milk chocolate
Whipped cream and mini marshmallows
 
Combine milk, cocoa powder, sugar, molasses, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until all combined and dissolved and milk is steaming. Do not let mixture come to a boil. Whisk in the chopped chocolate a little at a time until smooth. Divide among 6 to 8 mugs and garnish with whipped cream and mini marshmallows.
 
We wish all of you a Very Lovely Holiday Season and a Healthy Happy New Year.
