Christmas Cocktail Bazaar: Holiday Cosmo

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 28, 2018

As I mentioned this past Sunday, Thanksgiving (both the Canadian and the American) Holiday is past, and I am now gearing up for the Christmas Season by sharing some yule tide cocktails. Today’s serving is a seasonal take on the classic Cosmopolitan Cocktail.  The twist is the use of Cranberry Pomegranate Juice and then the dressed up garnish which includes candy glitter.

Here is a hint for you, when you rime the glass, keep the glitter on the outside so as to not sweeten the serving unnecessarily. As well, (although it is not shown on the picture below) leave about a third of the rim without candy garnish so you can sip without getting a mouthful of glitter. The serving will still look spectacular wowing all of your friends, and if someone has a sweeter tooth they can always turn the glass around when they sip.

Here is the Holiday Cosmo served with Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka.
