Today’s cocktail was based on a recipe originally called the Danish Christmas Cookie Martini, but since Christmas is over, I figured it needed a new name. This is basically the only intriguing recipe I found for a holiday cocktail this year, so I gave it a shot.
The hubby and I liked it, but it was a little on the sweet side, so I’d nix the sugar rim, unless you’re just really into sweet. If champagne isn’t your thing*, maybe give this a try instead on New Year’s Eve.
* Who are you? Champagne is awesome.
New Year’s Kiss
Based on this recipe, with a couple of tweaks
2 oz Stoli Vanil or other vanilla vodka, chilled
1 oz Di Saronno amaretto
splash of ginger ale (to taste), chilled
Mix ingredients in a shaker with ice. Give one brisk shake to mix and pour into cocktail glasses. Makes 2.
