Ok, so it wasn’t Mixology Monday, but last night we were feeling festive. Suzi and I brought in our cranberry citrus infused vodka and whipped up our version of a Moscow Mule.
The R+D Reindeer
Super easy, super delicious. I even sold a few to dudes that drank them really quickly so they weren’t seen with such a girly holiday martini – and then asked for another, but on the rocks this time. This drink may look sweet and fruity, but it is refreshing and crisp. A perfect holiday cocktail!
2 oz Cranberry Infused Vodka (we did the OJ for water substitute)
**If you don’t have the time or the patience, I’m sure you can use regular vodka with a SMALL splash of cranberry juice**
4 mint leaves
2 lime wedges
1.5 oz Gingerbeer
Sugar-rimmed martini glass
Combine the vodka, mint leaves, and squeezed lime wedges over ice and shake until cold.
Strain into martini glass and top with Ginger Beer. A few mint specks are fine, they are green and festive!
We garnished our Reindeer with a few frozen cranberries, but you could add a mint leaf if you want for that perfect holiday color combo.
It looks like Santa’s hat and it tastes delicious!
Oh, and this is all I have left this morning…
I’d call it a success.
