Christmas means friends, family, presents, and of course fun cocktail recipes. To get you and your friends into the holiday spirit, Iceberg Vodka has concocted three drink recipes that are sure to please the reveler and the relaxer.
Liven up the party with the Candy Cane Martini – a fun red and green themed cocktail that is easy to make and tasty to sip; or for quieter nights by the fire, try the Iceberg Winter Warmer. For the Christmas party, the Cranberry-Vodka Iceberg Punch is a simple but enjoyable crowd pleaser.
Candy Cane Martini
1.5 oz. Iceberg Vodka
1/2 oz. Vanilla liqueur
1/2 oz. Peppermint Schnapps
1 oz Club Soda
Crushed candy cane
1-2 drops red or green food coloring
Combine Iceberg Vodka, vanilla liqueur, Peppermint Schnapps, and Club Soda in a shaker with ice and shake. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with crushed candy canes. Add food coloring and a small candy cane as garnish.
Iceberg Winter Warmer
1 oz. Iceberg Vodka
4 to 5 oz. apple cider
Caramel apple dipping sauce
Fill a shaker with ice. Add Iceberg Vodka and apple cider. Add a few shakes of ground cinnamon. Strain into a microwave-safe container. Microwave until hot, but not boiling (about 30 seconds). Rim a coffee mug or other hot beverage glass with sugar. Transfer warm beverage to rimmed glass. Garnish with a second dash of cinnamon and an apple slice that has been coated with caramel apple dipping sauce. If you prefer it less sweet, skip the caramel dipping sauce. Top with whipped cream if desired.
Cranberry-Vodka Iceberg Punch
1 750 ml bottle of chilled Iceberg Vodka
2 quarts of chilled cranberry juice cocktail
2 cups chilled ginger ale
2 cups chilled club soda
Mix together the cranberry juice cocktail and Iceberg Vodka in a large punch bowl, stir well. Add plenty of ice to the mixture. Pour the club soda and ginger ale on top. Garnish with slices of fresh fruit of choice—oranges, lemons, pineapple, kiwi, and strawberry. Let the party begin!
