For your viewing pleasure, I present —
The Yule Ball!!
They say, “Presentation is everything,” but I think the recipe is equally important. =p
1.5 oz. Vodka
0.75 oz. Cointreau
0.75 oz. Maraschino Liqueur
0.33 (AKA 1/3 oz.) Cranberry Juice
0.33 Orange Juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker over ice, and shake vigorously.
Feel free to funnel into a clear, glass Christmas ornament
Garnish with Rosemary and Sugar-covered Cranberries
Provide Martini glass for those who don’t want to drink out of an ornament – lol
Review: Putting it in an ornament was a pretty fun and entertaining idea that I shamelessly stole from the internet. However, the recipe as a whole could benefit from a larger amount of cranberry juice. I was limited in the amount I could use by the size of my ornament, but next time there will be more cranberry juice.
I also think it could use some Deep Eddy Lemon rather than just regular vodka, to give it a little more of a citrus kick.
Enjoy! See you next time!!
