Warm Winter Margarita
Help your guests warm up from the cold and get the festivities started with a Warm Winter Margarita.
Start by dehydrating fruits, like cranberries and blueberries. Then, mix together 2 ounces of gold tequila, 1 3/4 cups of apple juice, and a pinch of granulated sugar.
Add in some of your dehydrated fruit and a cinnamon stick. Not only will these make a cute garnish, but they’ll help boost the flavor of the drink, too!
The Little Devil
Have your guests been naughty or nice this year? The Little Devil is the perfect drink for those who may be getting a lump of coal in their stockings this year.
To make one drink, mix 2 ounces of vodka with 0.75 ounces each of chile liqueur, lemon juice, and maple syrup. Then, fill the remainder of the glass with club soda.
Dust a dehydrated mango slice with a little chili powder and place it on the edge of the glass for the perfect garnish, or drop it right in the drink to add an extra burst of flavor.
Dried Peach Collins
Who says holiday drinks can’t be a little light and fruity? A Dried Peach Collins is a real crowd pleaser for the holidays, especially if paired with a little peach pie for Thanksgiving.
Just combine 1.5 ounces of gin with 0.75 ounces each of lemon juice and peach simple syrup. Fill the remainder of the glass with club soda and finish it off by adding some dehydrated peaches.
