Have Yourself A Holiday Cocktail!

It’s officially the holiday season and to celebrate we have cocktails with your name on them. Read on for two very festive sips from Anne Taintor’s new book, I’m so Happy It’s Happy Hour: Sinfully Delicious Cocktails for Any Occasion.

Frostbite
1 ounce tequila
1 ounce heavy cream
1 ounce crème de cacao
1/2 ounce white crème de menthe
Ice cubes
Cocoa powder for garnish

Shake the liquid ingredients vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Sprinkle with cocoa powder for garnish.

Merry Widow
1 ounce gin
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce sweet Bénédictine
1/2 ounce pastis
Dash of bitters
Ice cubes
Lemon twist for garnish

Shake the liquid ingredients vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

For a chance to win a copy of the book, leave a comment with your favorite holiday drink, whether it is hot apple cider or something with a little more kick, by December 13th. We’ll randomly select one winner, who will also receive deliciously wry Anne Taintor coasters, which you can check out here, here and here. Open to US residents only. Cheers!
