FUN FACT: I Love mixing drinks and so can regularly be found being to mixologist at the party making a deadly concoction that will make you very drunk, very quickly (mostly because you drink it like water cause it tastes so good and then suffer the consequences later once you realise the strength of it!) So anyway, this blog post is going to be LIT! *cringe*
Each of these are equally delicious with or without alcohol, all the recipes listed are with alcohol but if you take away that it can still be enjoyed soberly. I cannot take credit for all of these at all as most are recipes taken from else where and then edited for clarification and general accessibility. If you make any of them … sorry.
Side note – add ice to all of these as it just makes it better – even if it is a little cold for winter
First up is one I have forgotten the name of and so shall be called “Rouge Reindeer” for some Christmas cheer.
a sliced orange
30 ml – cream of coconut
450 ml – cranberry juice
250 ml – pineapple juice
125 ml – peach schnapps
175 ml – vodka
The original version have over 4 L of liquid in it so I reduced this down a bit so it’s now just over 1L – a tad more manageable. however, if your lucky enough to go to or host a crazy rager then just times these measurements by 4 for an absolute full tub of “Rouge Reindeer”
Next up we have “Christmas Day Prosecco Punch” from KITCHEN SANCTUARY but I have made a slight change to it so if you want to see the original click here
This again is for a large portion so i have halved the recipe
50 g – Cranberries
40 g – pomegranate seeds
1 limes juice
some fresh mint leaves (whatever ya like)
250 ml – Orange Juice (it says clementine but, life, who has that lying around?)
350 ml – Pomegranate Juice
half a bottle of Prosecco (or a whole one if you like the fizz or more if you dont want the voddy)
150 ml – Vodka
1 L – Cranberry Juice
Now for something a bit more fancy, because we like a bit of class, here on Natsmas.
We have the “Santa Claus – Mopolitan” from Blue Ribbon Kitchen (full recipe here)
This is one the other end of the Spectrum as only makes a glass (I think) so I had to increase the amount of liquid volume!
470 ml – Cranberry Juice
470 ml – Peach Juice
110 ml – Triple Sec
55 ml – Vodka
For a more crazy looking one we have “Jack Frost”, I have no idea who created this fantastic concoction as the recipe I have in anonymous…oh well – edited by me again
470 ml – Pineapple Juice
130 ml – Blue curacao
130 ml – Light rum
130 ml – cream of coconut
a tin of pineapple slices (small one – preferably chopped but up to you really)
Finally, A cocktail I CANNOT BELIEVE EXISTS! It is the Essex Cocktail. I found it on ehow many moons ago and have wanted to make it since, but to be honest – am too scared (edited again)
150 ml – Lemon Vodka
150 ml – Vodka
150 ml – Peppermint Liqueur
150 ml – Blackberry Schnapps
NO MIXERS REQUIRED!?
Yep – if you make this one RIP, but do tell me how it went…if you can remember…after recovering…3 days later…
Merry Drunken Natsmas!
