Christmas Cocktails

Since it is near the season I have decided to pass on these drink recipes I did on TV last week. Then next week we will do something else. The TV show went extremely well and they want me back closer to when the next courses start in mid - January to do some wine tastings on some grape varietals. My goal is to wait part time and teach more in 2009. I really like it and it is less tiresome on the body and the hours are more manageable , plus the pay is good and consistent. Also with a family one can look toward the medical benefit aspect to it as well.

Anyway here they are , they were all a big hit and once I get the demos on You Tube I will pass them on.

Christmas Cocktail

1oz Southern Comfort
1oz Godiva White Chocolate Liquer
Put in Highball with ice and fill with Egg Nog
Sprinkle Chocolate Shavings on Top

The Poinsetta

In a chilled flute glass
Pour 3/4 oz Triple Sec
Pour 2 1/2 oz Champagne or Cava
Top up with Cranberry Juice

Anti - Freeze

1/2 oz White or Green Creme de Menthe
1/2 oz Irish Cream
Fill Mug with Hot Chocolate
Top with Whip Cream
Sprinkle Chocolate Shavings on Top

Cabin Fever

1oz Peppermint Schnapps
Fill Mug with Hot Chocolate
Top with Whip Cream
Sprinkle Chocolate Shavings on Top

Chocolate Martini ( A different version )

1oz Godiva Liquer
1oz White Creme de Cacao
1/2 oz Vodka
Splash of Peppermint Schnapps
3 oz 10% cream
