Entertaining for the holidays can be stressful.
Michelle Bonsick from Fine Wine and Good Spirits showed us two holiday drinks to serve your guests... and well as gifts you can give them.
1oz Evan Williams Bourbon, chilled
2 Tbsp vanilla bean syrup (recipe below)
Enza Prosecco, chilled
Add bourbon and vanilla bean syrup to a chilled champagne glass and top with Prosecco
Vanilla Bean Syrup: Combine ½ cup sugar, ½ cup water and ½ vanilla bean pod, split and seeds scraped. Bring to a boil in a small pot over medium heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved, stirring occasionally. Cool to room temperature and discard the vanilla bean pod.
Candy Cane Lane
2½ oz vodka
1 oz white crème de menthe
½ oz peppermint schnapps
Splash of grenadine
Put a splash of grenadine into the bottom of a chilled martini glass; set aside. Combine remaining ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into prepared glass to create a “swirl” effect. Garnish with peppermint candy.
