December 23: Poinsettia

If you aren’t already amongst family and friends, you will be soon. This drink will appease most, if not all in the crowd. It also allows, but does not require you to throw cinnamon sticks into a glass like a fancy badass.

Name: Poinsettia

For one drink you will need…
2 oz tequila
1/2 oz sherry
5 cranberries
2 wedges of lemon
1/2 oz simple syrup

Glass: Old Fashioned

Instructions: Muddle cranberries, lemon and simple syrup in a shaker. Pack with ice. Add tequila and sherry. Shake until frothy. Serve over fresh ice and garnish with a few fresh cranberries and cinnamon stick if you’re the type of person with cinnamon sticks lying around this time of year.


Soundtrack: Mannheim Steamroller, A Fresh Aire Christmas
