Christmastini, anyone?

10 12 2008

For some, like Santa and Bill O’Reilly, the spirit of Christmas comes naturally, but the rest of us need a little help getting in the holiday spirit. For this purpose, we bring you the Kamakaze Christmastini: Part sweet, part sour, and all the courage you’ll need to face another holiday get together with the three-ring circus that is your family.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Martini glasses, chilled
  • Grenadine
  • Pre-mixed Kamakaze shots, like DeKuyper Burst
  • Red or green decorative sugar
  • Marischino cherries (optional)


Pour a small amount of the sugar into a shallow dish. Dampen the rim of the martini glass and dip into the sugar, then fill 2/3 full with Kamakaze mix. SLOWLY pour about half an ounce of grenadine into the glass, so that it does not mix with the Kamakaze and sits in the bottom of the glass. Garnish with a cherry and serve!

Another pretty drink for the holiday season? Order a “Jade Slipper” in a bar. It is a melon-tini with a cherry for garnish. Or, to make it yourself…

Fill a shaker half with ice.
Pour one shot vodka (your choice).
Pour one shot Midori (or other melon liqueur).
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice (half a small lemon).
Add a half a shot worth of Sour.
Serve by straining into a chilled martini glass with a single cherry at the bottom.

It is a nice bright green and the red is a lovely contrast. Impress your friends.
