Holiday Cocktails~ Toast to the Season


Starbucks had it right when they created their holiday line of sweet coffee treats, pumpkin, gingerbread, and eggnog lattes. Here we have taken this idea one step further to create an even jollier approach  these festive drinks by making them into cocktails!
What better way to add zest and pizzazz to your holiday celebrations and parties than to recreate these treats in a spiked fashion! These cocktails are a particularly great way to fancy it up for your guests.

Pumpkin Pie Martini
2 ½ oz Stoli Vanil
½ oz pumpkin puree or ½ oz pumpkin syrup (puree works best for taste but has a bit of pulp, also may have to add sugar)
Shake vigorously and strain into martini glass
Add some whip cream, and sprinkle some cinnamon

Egg Nog Martini
1 ½ Tommy Bahama Dark Rum (may substitute vodka)
½ oz Amaretto
2oz Egg Nog
