Winter Wedding Drinks {Festive Signature Cocktails}

As the weather gets chillier and holiday decorations are popping up all over the place, my mind turns to fun holiday drinks.  If you're planning a wintertime wedding, consider one of these for your signature drink.  If you're not, consider whipping up a batch of these for a holiday party or just for fun (if you drink a whole batch yourself, you will have fun)!

The Candy Cane

2 1-2 oz Van Gogh Blue vodka
1 oz White crème de menthe
1/2 oz Peppermint schnapps
Splash of Grenadine
Peppermint candy for garnish

Add a dash of grenadine into the bottom of a chilled martini glass and set aside. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into the glass with grenadine to create a “swirl” effect. Garnish with peppermint candy.

Eggnog Martini

2 1-2 oz Eggnog
1 oz Van Gogh Vanilla Vodka
¾ oz Amaretto

Combine ingredients in shaker and shake over ice. Strain into chilled martini glass. Dust with freshly grated nutmeg or cinnamon.
