Last week I shared a Baileys Red Velvet Chocolate Martini that we plan to enjoy at my sister’s house on Christmas Eve:
It’s so decadent! But I also thought it would also be fun to have a mini Christmas tree filled with adult spirits.
Ever since I saw the very merry ornamentini, created by Michael from Inspired by Charm, I’ve been wanting to make a cocktail ornament.
There is just something so fun and festive about them, so I decided to give them a try this year with a different spin.
As we have a bit of traveling to do, I wanted to see if there were ornament balls that had a twist off ornament top to avoid any spilling during travel.
Sure enough, I found juice bulb cups on Amazon that are made to hold liquid.
They were also very reasonably priced. Score!
Since I’m a big margarita fan, I decided to make a margarita mixer ornament cocktail with tequila:
My older sister loves limoncello, so I had to include a lemontini for her with vodka:
Finally, a classic cosmopolitan completes the trio of holiday cocktails:
These ornament cocktails are so easy to make, but they are sure to be the hit of the party.
You can also make them for a New Year’s Eve party.
Place them on a table on a pretty platter, or in a crystal bowl, with martini glasses and a few cocktail shakers.
The guests can pick out their favorite cocktail, mix it up and pour it in the glass.
For an extra treat, leave out some sugared cranberries to add to the drinks.
Here is what you need to make your own holiday ornament cocktails.
Supplies For Holiday Ornament Cocktails
- Bulb Design Christmas Tree Ornaments
- Bakers Twine
- Washi Tape
- Mini bottles of alcohol – we call them “nips” in Rhode Island!
You can certainly make your own mixers, but I took the easy way out and used pre-made mixers.
What do you think? Aren’t these so fun?
If you give these a try, leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear.
There will be one more ornament shared tomorrow and it’s a great last minute gift idea.
So be sure to stop by. Happy Holidays!
