Old Fashioned with a holiday twist
1 teaspoon sugar
2 ounces bourbon
Ice cubes (1/2 cup)

Choose cocktail napkins that start a conversation…these are adorable!
If champagne is on your list to serve…freeze your favorite fruit garnish and place out for guests to choose their own.
A Pear Tree Christmas Cocktail
1 Oz Pear Vodka
1 Oz Lemon Juice
1Oz Simple Syrup ( I Used Agave Nectar Instead)
Champagne Rosemary, Cut Into 1 Inch Sprigs Place One Rosemary Sprig In Each Glass.
Combine Vodka, Lemon Juice And Simple Syrup (Or Agave) In A Shaker Over Ice.
Shake Well, And Strain Over Rosemary. Top With Champagne
Make a few things sparkle on a DIY budget…
WINTER SEA BREEZE
1 oz vodka (1/8 cup)
1 oz grapefruit juice (1/8 cup)
1/2 oz tonic syrup (2 tablespoons)
2 oz soda water (1/4 cup)
12 pomegranate seeds
3 mint leaves (for garnish)
Fill your glass about 3/4 full with ice. A lowball glass is the perfect size. Add the vodka, grapefruit juice, tonic syrup and stir. Pour in the soda water and garnish with the pomegranate seeds and mint leaves.
Tonic is a great cocktail mixers, and there are now artisanal tonic syrups. A good one is Jack Rudy Tonic Syrup that can be found at Whole Foods. The recommendation is to use syrup because it’s not too sweet and has a little more complexity of flavor. If you don’t have tonic syrup, you can substitute 1/4 cup regular tonic for the soda water and syrup.
Drink stirrers are a must have…
Try something different like these bow-tie or snowflake stirrers to dress the perfect cocktail.
Kids need a safe and fun place to grab their favorite drink during your holiday party. Make their glasses look a little different and customizable like these.
Instead of a straw or stirrer try these tie around accessories with your fav saying!
