I don't know about you, but I'm glad it's Friday! Who needs a drink?

As the countdown to Christmas continues and you knock a few more holiday parties off your list this weekend I thought I would share a few tasty holiday cocktail recipes to spice up the party circuit (or perhaps the pre-drink).

Candy Cane Martini (this spells headache so if I were you I would just have one!)

You'll need:

  • 1.5 oz. vodka
  • 1/2 oz. vanilla liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. peppermint schnapps
  • 1 oz soda water
  • crushed candy cane
  • peppermint sticks or candy cane for stirring

Then you:

  1. Rim martini glass with crushed candy cane
  2. Pour vodka, vanilla vodka and peppermint schnapps in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and pour into martini glass.
  3. For the the weakling you can top off with soda, but I would prefer this straight up!
  4. Serve with a candy cane as a stir stick.

If you're hosting a holiday party, I think this cranberry vodka punch recipe would make a great crowd pleaser.

Vodka Cranberry Punch

You'll need:

  • 1 750 ml bottle of chilled vodka
  • 8 cups of chilled cranberry juice cocktail
  • 2 cups chilled ginger ale
  • 2 cups chilled soda water

Then you:

  1. In a large punch bowl mix cranberry juice and vodka well.
  2. Add plenty of ice.
  3. Stir in soda and gingerale and add any fruit you wish (I recommend floating cranberries!)

Please drink responsibly folks!
