It's almost that time to get Holly AND Jolly.
And what better way to do that than with some delicious Holiday cocktails? I was super excited when the really nice people over at SMIRNOFF invited me to create a Holiday cocktail recipe with their limited edition Peppermint Twist vodka. The bottle is so adorable and even has a scratch and sniff scent.
I love Moscow Mules (probably because I like the copper mugs so much) and I thought it would be fun to do a twist on that. What says Holidays more the flavors of ginger and peppermint?
While i was at it, I also wanted to try one one the cocktail recipes that SMIRNOFF sent over. This SMIRNOFF Peppermint Martini is delish!
Over the past several years, I've missed out on a lot of Holiday posts just because I waited too long to do anything. Not this year!!! I'm totally ready for cookie exchanges and ugly sweater parties.
I'll even be hosting some parties at my house and will definitely be serving these cocktails.
This SMIRNOFF Peppermint Twist vodka will be available in stores starting in November, but only for a limited time.
