Easy Holiday Cocktails
What easy holiday cocktails can I create with an Italian soda recipe? Torani flavored syrups of peppermint and vanilla are perfect to use for easy cocktails with vodka!
With Torani, I knew I could create my annual Christmas cocktail. I love making Christmas cocktail recipes for Seduction In The Kitchen. I wanted this year’s cocktail recipe to be special.
Christmas Snow Globe
An Italian Soda was part the inspiration for this drink recipe. Also, a Christmas snow globe also inspired this snowy beverage. Wait a Christmas snow globe??
Yes, a Christmas snow globe. The sparkling now swirling in the glass of a snow globe I thought would look pretty as a Christmas drink! So I found some luster dust to mix in this cocktail. The effect is similar to Mermaid Dreams Cocktail, which also uses a luster dust in it as well.
The end effect was beautiful. The photos do not capture how sparkling this drink really is. It looks like a snowfall in a glass!
