Looking for ways to perk up your holiday offerings? We are always on the lookout for new ideas and ways to spruce up the Christmas season too. While cruising through the interweb, we came across some fun ways to incorporate candy canes into your Christmas beverages. Our thanks to mentalfloss.com for these great ideas.
Why should kids be left out of the fun? Need some color for your water glass? Here is a fun way to make any clear beverage more festive. If you are serving 7up or even just plain water make these Christmas ice cubes. All you do is place a colorful, edible garnish to your water and freeze. Great because you can have these on hand all through the Christmas season by making up a large batch.
Looking for ways to use those candy canes you bought in bulk from a big box discounter? The kids will love this candy cane milkshake recipe from Dashingdish.com. This tastes a lot better than the 205 calories the recipe says are in there.
Here is another Christmas beverage for the kids or anyone who doesn’t want all the calories from alcohol. This one is from Cherlstyle.com and it’s called a pomegranate and grenadine sparkling mocktail. What a fun drink for the kids.
For the adults we have a couple more offerings. Thanks to the Fancy Napkin for this recipe. This drink is called the Candy Cane. We think the crushed candy cane on the rim of the glass really makes this drink special. Be careful with this one. It goes down way too easy.
This last one is our favorite of the bunch and it comes to us from yummly.com. It’s a peppermint martini or maybe a better name would be Peppermitini.
Be careful out there. Enjoy the holidays but be responsible. Lots of these beverage go down too easy because they are so sweet. Always have a designated driver when you go out and know that there will be alcohol involved.
