I made pomegranate mimosas for a party and they were super easy and a big hit, and I think they could be Christmasy.  Here’s the recipe:

2 cups chilled pomegranate juice

1 cup chilled orange juice

1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur (preferably Cointreau, although I might have used Triple Sec)

1 bottle well-chilled Cava or Champagne (I think I used Cava or Prosecco)

Combine juices and liqueur in a large pitcher.  Slowly add sparkling wine and stir.  (I think I left the juice mixture separate and let people mix their own.)

Enjoy!  Smile

This maybe too simple for some but in cold weather, I love Rumplemintz in hot cocoa. Yum.

I make mint hot chocolates!

You can make them two ways:

1 – hot chocolate made with warm milk

– mix in creme de cacao 

– hang a candy cane over the side of the cup (it’s great presentation and the candy cane melts and makes it all minty)

2 – hot chocolate made with warm milk

– mix in creme de menthe

I’m actually throwing an Ugly Christmas sweat party this weekend and found this online:

1 can cranberry juice frozen concentrate

1 pkg of frozen raspberries

1 liter of club soda (VERY COLD)

1 2 liter bottle of Ginger Ale (VERY COLD)

2 bottles of cheap champagne

Make ice cubes with the raspberries and juice concentrate – freeze 8 hours in advance.

Yup – i was going to suggest mimosas too. Or bellini’s which are a similar concept.
