One of the many reasons we love weddings- the celebration! We love a great party, and having festive drinks can make any party better! We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite festive cocktails so you can ring in 2020 with the perfect drink in hand!
Love the look, but want to keep it kid friendly? Skip the vodka and use sparkling white grape juice in lieu of the champs!
Peppermint Bark Mimosas
- Pour melted chocolate onto a small plate. Pour crushed candy canes onto a separate plate. Dip rims of champagne flutes first in chocolate, then in crushed candy canes to coat.
- Add an ounce of peppermint schnapps to each glass, then top with champagne or prosecco. Garnish with full candy canes before serving.
To make this recipe more family friendly you can skip the schnapps and champagne and use sprite with a dash of peppermint syrup! This is the perfect recipe to use up all those leftover candy canes and peppermint bark you may have found in your stocking!
Lemon wedge, for rimming
White sanding sugar, for rimming
- In a blender, combine vodka, Prosecco, blue curaçao, lemonade, and ice. Blend until combined.
- Run a lemon wedge around the rim of each glass then dip in sanding sugar.
- Pour frosties into rimmed glasses and serve immediately.
You can use blue raspberry lemonade instead of traditional lemonade, and drop the alcohol to create a regular Jack Frostie!
Sugar Cookie Martinis
FOR THE MARTINI
FOR THE RIM
Pre-made sugar cookie dough
- Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll sugar cookie dough out to ¼” thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut out desired shapes then place cookies on prepared baking sheet. Bake until just set and lightly golden around the edges, 12 minutes. Let cool.
- Using an offset spatula, spread a thin layer of frosting onto rim of two martini glasses. Pour ¼ cup sprinkles onto a small plate then dip rims in sprinkles to coat. Use an offset to frost cookies with frosting then decorate with the remaining 2 tablespoons sprinkles.
- In a cocktail shaker, combine milk, Baileys, vodka, and amaretto. Add ice and shake until cold. Pour into glasses and garnish rim with a cookie.
This is our easiest amended recipe- turn this into a milk and cookies feast for the kids! You can even dip the rims to keep it fun!
- In a small dish, pour melted white chocolate. In another small dish, pour rainbow sprinkles. Dip champagne glass rims in melted white chocolate, then in sprinkles.
- Add 1 to 2 scoops of sherbet to each champagne flute. Top with champagne and serve immediately.
Skip the champagne and use 7-up instead, for an alcohol-free treat!
As you can tell, we love a fun festive beverage! However, you can’t go wrong with the traditional champagne toast ring in 2020!
Happy New Year from the StarDust Celebrations family!
