New Years Drink Recipes: The Best of the Best


Here’s our all time favorite drink to serve for your guests while you watch Ryan Seacrest and Justin Bieber strip what little dignity is left from Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve. You might think we’d go with a champagne based drink, but the bubbly is best served as is, at midnight. For a special treat for your guests, give this a try earlier in the evening.

The Best New Years Drink Recipe:

Happy New Year Hot Buttered Rum

Ingredients


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 package confectioners’ sugar, sifted (16 oz)
  • 1 pound light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
  • your favorite dark rum


Directions

1. In a large bowl cream the butter and the sugars together until smooth. Add the softened ice cream and mix until it’s exceptionally creamy. Transfer this to a freezer container with a tight fitting lid. Place in the freezer for as long as you can (a few days to a few weeks, yes, start now).

2. When you’re ready to partay, place a heaping 2 tablespoons of the frozen mix in a highball glass or coffee mug. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons dark rum. Pour over the mix 6 ounces of boiling water and stir until the mixture is melted. Sprinkle top with cinnamon or nutmeg and serve!


Happy holidays and enjoy!

Halloween Drink Recipes


meeeowwwww! It’s that time of year again friends, and as you might have guessed, I’m dressing as a fireman.

Halloween is right around the corner so it’s time to turn our attention from sweet summer-y drinks to concoctions that are more in touch with the dark side. I’m talking about drinks inspired by ghosts, goblins and creepy supernatural events. These drinks may have some bloodcurdling names, but trust me… the taste really good.

I’ll try and update this page from now until Halloween with some clever drink recipes to both scare an intoxicate your Halloween party guests this year. Bookmark this page for an in-progress list of all our Halloween cocktails. Here are a few to get you started:

Here’s a drink I whipped up for some friends this week. It had some great reviews:

Pumpkin Pie Martini
Ingredients

12 oz of your favorite vodka
1/3 can of pumpkin pie filling
1 cinnamon stick
3 cloves
5 drops of vanilla
whipped cream

Directions
Mix together the vodka, pumpkin pie filling, vanilla, and cloves in a large bowl or bottle (something you can seal later). The pumpkin pie filling will be quite thick, so ensure you give it a thorough mixing. Add in cinnamon stick, seal it up, and leave it for at least 24 hours in the refridgerator.

When you’re ready, open up the mixture and filter out the pumpkin infused vodka. strain the vodka to a martini glass and top with whipped cream. For extra credit, crush up some ginger snaps and use as rimmer on the glass, or top with a fun Halloween cookie from your mom.
