It's Holiday Cocktail Time!!!

I have been getting a lot of requests to post cocktail recipes from recent television appearances.  Here are 3 great recipes that were recently featured on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live.  Enjoy

Snowflake Martini

2 parts Vodka
1 part White Creme de Menthe
1 part White Cranberry Juice

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with cracked ice.  Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass that has been rimmed with white sugar.  Garnish with an apple slice that has been cut into the shape of a snowflake using a standard cookie cutter.

Hot Choc-tail

8 ounces of hot chocolate ( I use Godiva )
1 1/2 ounces of Vanilla Vodka
1 1/2 ounces of Frangelico
Dash Cayenne Pepper
Whipped Cream

Heat the hot chocolate on the stove in a small pot.  Add Vanilla Vodka, Frangelico and Cayenne Pepper.  Heat slowly and do not boil!  When heated to the desired temperature serve in mugs and top with whipped cream.

Eggnog Martini

2 parts eggnog
1 part Vanilla Vodka
1/2 part Amaretto

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with cracked ice.  Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass that has been lightly rimmed with a combination of nutmeg and cinnamon. Sprinkle a dash of nutmeg on top and serve.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

Happy Holidays and .....
