May 11th marks the anniversary of the death of music legend Bob Marley.We figured we’d make the Bob Marley Shot in his honor. No doubt Bob Marley had that intangible factor that few artists ever have. Like other music luminaries Jimi Hendrix and Tupac Shakur, who also died young, Marley’s words and music seemed to cross boundaries and reach people right where they were at. In honor of the undisputed king of reggae music, today we’re making Flaming Bob Marley Shots. April 20th is right around the corner, so perhaps you should be downing this Bob Marley drink at 4:20pm. A huge spliff in the other hand is optional.
As the days get longer, and Christmas draws near, it’s time for me to renew my focus on holiday drinks. Today’s entry is the Yule Mule. Based on the traditional mule formula of ginger beer, vodka, and lime juice, the Yule mule also introduces some subtle flavors of cranberry and orange. So tie a ribbon on that log, and stoke up the fire, and let’s get down to some mixology.
I can hardly believe the year is almost over so soon. For the next few weeks, we’re going to focus on Christmas mixed drinks. With that in mind, let me introduce you to the Five Layer Cookie, otherwise known as the Christmas Cookie Cocktail. Combining the flavors of dark rum, gingerbread liqueur, hazelnut, and Irish cream, this Christmas Cookie drink recipe is one that you won’t soon forget.
While looking for new holiday drinks for this year’s videos, I happened upon a recipe entitled A Taste of Winter. This sublime cocktail combines a few upscale ingredients to create something amazing. This drink’s flavor palate fits the winter theme to perfection, with tones of citrus, cherry, and orange. So crank up the tunes, grab yourself a glass, because the winter is about to warm up in a hurry.
The poinsettia has become a traditional Christmas decoration. This distinctive red flower graces many a home during the holidays. It has also inspired a champagne cocktail called the Pomegranate Poinsettia. Highlighting the flavors of pomegranate, orange, and champagne, the Poinsettia drink recipe truly deserves to be a Christmas mainstay.
One of my most vivid Christmas memories was receiving a 2 pound Candy cane for a stocking stuffer. In remembrance of nostalgia such as this, I’m pleased to bring you the Peppermint Stick recipe. For this shooter, we combined cream, crème de cacao, and peppermint schnapps to make a smooth and mellow peppermint cocktail. Read on and start making some holiday memories of your own.
Christmas is almost here, and many people will be entertaining guests. You might need a party punch that will serve eight reindeer and some friends. Possibly you want something that is both easy to prepare but also impressive. Let me introduce you to Rudolph’s Tipsy Spritzer. This citrus based spritzer is visually stunning, tastes great, and you probably already have everything necessary to create it in your kitchen.
