What’s a party without a festive cocktail? Or in this case two! A few weeks back I held a cookie swap for some friends and created these two cocktails for everyone to enjoy! Pictured above is my version of a Bailey’s martini. I coated the rim of my glass in honey, do so sparingly or it will ooze down the glass (speaking from experience) and then dip in crushed peppermint. Shake Baileys on ice, pour and enjoy! You could also add instant espresso if you wanted to make this a peppermint espresso martini.
My second recipe was for mulled wine. The nice thing about it is you can make it in the crockpot and set it to low. Ingredients were red wine, cinnamon, a little bit of honey and orange peel zest. I recommend following a recipe closely for this there are tons online. I followed a recipe but I had abnormally large cinnamon sticks so mine was a bit too poignant with cinnamon flavor! I added more red wine and that helped to round it out. Drop a comment if this inspired you to make any festive cocktails!
