Frostini, Holiday Drinks and Cocktail Recipes
The holidays are a favorite time of year for many people. This cheery season is filled with parties and events that bring the spirit of the season out in everyone.
As a part of these festivities there are some wonderful drinks that you can serve that fit the holiday theme perfectly. Traditional warm drinks are a great place to start and we cannot forget the wonders of eggnog (a drink that should be on everyone's Christmas list). Beyond those Christmas classics, the drinks below make great additions to any party or casual holiday gathering. Happy Holidays!
Imagine a chilly winter night, you're in the mood for something inviting, smooth and creamy with the tastes of the season. The Frostini is an excellent Martini option. Made with Starbucks' Cream and Coffee Liqueurs and a little peppermint schnapps, shaken and serve neat, maybe with a sprig of fresh mint. What could be better to warm you up and chill you out at the same time.
