Recipe: Fun and Festive Holiday Cocktail

Well, folks, it’s Monday, which means we are all in need of a little cocktail, am I right? Today I have a super simple and delicious holiday cocktail recipe for you. This would be great for a party, and you could even make a big batch in a punch bowl if you wanted to serve it as an alcoholic punch. Here’s the ingredients you will need: vodka, cranberry raspberry spritzer (this particular one is from Trader Joe’s, but I have seen similar drinks at most supermarkets), and an orange. How pretty is that orange? I sent Matt to the market and told him I needed a photogenic orange (exact words) and he delivered this beauty!

For the drink, mix two shots of vodka and two shots of the cranberry raspberry spritzer. Then squeeze the juice from half of the orange into your drink and mix together. I don’t recommend shaking since the juice is carbonated, just give it a good stir. If you are not a huge vodka fan, you can always add more of the juices to mask the flavor. Adjust to your taste! You could also add ice if you so desire, but since I always keep my vodka in the freezer and the juice was refrigerated, I didn’t need it.

This cocktail is super yummy and super easy to make, plus it came out to be the perfect color for a holiday drink! I would definitely serve this at a party, it would make a great Christmas cocktail!

All the decor in these pictures can be found at Target. The gold polka dot glasses and the mini Christmas trees were in the dollar bins, and the light up “Cheers” sign was in the party section (and it was only $12, total score in my opinion!).

Happy holidays friends! What are you going to be drinking tonight?
