Your holiday party schedule is probably filling up fast – you may even be hosting one yourself – and winter cocktails are a great way to warm things up! The Winter Solstice cocktail is one one of our favourite recipes.
Winter Solstice Cocktail
Yield: Makes one cocktail
- 1 1/2 ounces orange vodka
- 1/2 ounce orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
- 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, preferably from Meyer lemons
- Ice cubes
- Club soda, chilled
- 1 mint leaf, for garnish
- 1 raspberry, for garnish
Directions In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, orange liqueur, lemon juice, and ice; shake until well combined. Strain into a chilled martini glass; add a splash of soda. Carefully fold mint leaf in half lengthwise and place the stem end into the opening of the raspberry. Float on top of cocktail and serve immediately. Our Dawn glassware collection would be a great choice for this wintery drink!
