22 Dec Recipe // Holiday Drink The “Snow Day”
Christmas is a time for families and loved ones to gather together. While that is all good and fun, it can get a little stressful. Over the weekend, I heard someone say the following and I’m still giggling about it…
Having company over is like buying fresh fish. It’s good at first, but after a few days, it starts to STINK and you’re ready to get rid of it!”
This low-calorie, refreshing cocktail helps me keepmy cool when things get stinky! Plus, it’s perfect for the holiday season and makes a fabulous signature cocktail at a holiday party! [AND it’s Gluten Free!] Here’s what you need…
THE SNOW DAY // CRANBERRY AND ROSEMARY VODKA GIMLET
2 ounces vodka [I use Titos because it’s triple distilled AND all-natural! Plus, it’s GF and from Austin!]
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
fresh Rosemary Sprig
**Optional: Lime flavored La Croix
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the vodka, lime juice and simple syrup. Stir well with a spoon until very cold.
- Rub the Rosemary against the rim of the glass to allow the herb to open up and leave in the bottom.
- Strain over the rosemary into a chilled glass, or strain over a rocks glass filled with ice [and rosemary] and pour the lime-flavored soda to fill the rest of the glass. Garnish with fresh cranberries and serve immediately.
