Holiday Mixer

Style is about self expression and individuality, so this Christmas season while you're entertaining guest or just want to try something new might I suggest one of these.

This cocktail is just right if you’re looking for something a little decadent that’s rich and sweet. Its flavors are elegantly balanced and sure to cure your cravings.


1 1/2 ounces brandy
1 ounce crème de cacao
1 ounce heavy cream
1 scoop crushed ice
Whole nutmeg

Pour brandy, crème de cacao, and heavy cream into a mixing glass with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a 6-ounce cocktail glass and grate nutmeg over top, to taste.

Spending time with a potential new years eve date and want to make a quick good first impression? This is a perfect quick mix.


3 oz Champagne or sparkling wine
1 oz fresh white peach juice

Pour the peach juice into a champagne flute. Fill the glass with the Champagne or sparkling wine.

Having a private party? Or looking for late-night cocktail? This is the best way to go with Peppermint Martini. It’s both elegant and chic.

Yield: Serves 2


5 ounces high quality vodka
2 ounces of white crème de menthe
1/2 ounce of peppermint schnapps
Mini candy canes

1. Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously.

2. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish each with a candy cane.
