The Poinsettia

It's Christmas Eve! This is the first Christmas Eve in years that I haven't had to work all day. I will be enjoying a relaxing day at home. This cocktail is a perfect Christmas Eve or Christmas drink, you can mix it so that it's not too strong and you can even mix a mocktail for kids using OJ and sparkling grape juice in place of the alcohol based ingredients.

Recipe from American Bartending School.

The Poinsettia, cocktail


-1/2 ounce of Triple Sec
-2 shots of cranberry juice

Mix the cranberry juice and triple sec in a martini glass. Top with champagne.

Very easy to put together, subtle flavors. I would make this drink again. I am always a champagne fan and you can keep this drink low on alcohol or mix it strong.
