Holiday Recipe Roundup

My favorite thing about the holidays is spending time with my family that I don’t always get to see throughout the year.  My second favorite thing (and it’s a very close second) is eating without a care in the world.  For me, this only happens during the holiday season.  So today I’m sharing some of my favorite holiday recipes!  There’s also some additional links at the bottom for things like leftover stuffing and more.  Take a look:

Cranberry Paloma Cocktail Recipe

When I set out to create this Cranberry Paloma Cocktail Recipe, I truly wasn’t trying to make it look like Santa Claus!  My intention was pure and simple, to take one of my favorite warm weather drinks and turn it into something I could serve at a festive holiday party.  However, once I decided to sugar coat the rim this cocktail drink turned into Christmas all on its own!  Grab the recipe below:

Cranberry Paloma Cocktail Recipe

Serving size: one cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce cranberry juice
  • 3 ounces sparkling water or club soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon simple vanilla syrup*
  • 2 lime wedges
  • sugar to coat glass rim (optional)

 

*Simple Vanilla Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
Cranberry Paloma Cocktail Recipe

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!”

Recipe:

Simple Vanilla Syrup:

  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil on medium heat.
  2. Simmer until water/sugar begin to thicken (8-10 mins.)
  3. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, let cool before bottling.

Cranberry Paloma Cocktail:

  1. Cut two lime wedges.  Trace one along the edge of the glass.
  2. Place some sugar on a plate and dip glass into sugar.
  3. Add tequila, cranberry juice, sparkling water, and simple vanilla syrup together and stir.
  4. Squeeze the second lime wedge into your drink and use as a garnish.

Coastal Christmas Inspiration

I don’t know about you but I really get into the Christmas spirit as soon as the sun sets on Thanksgiving! I’ve already started decorating although I’m not quite finished. So I thought a little inspiration could come in handy to get my butt in gear and wrap up the holiday touches on my home.
