Materials and Tools Needed to Make Christmas Cocktails in Ornaments
If you’re a long time reader, you probably already know that we’re no strangers to unique cocktails. We’ve made cocktails in ice spheres, ice cream cone shots, and Christmas cookie ice cream shots to name a few! For these Christmas cocktails, here’s what you’ll need:
Open-ended clear plastic bulb ornaments — There are many different lightbulb ornaments available. However, it is very important to use ones that are food safe and not just for crafting.
Your favorite 3 ounce cocktail recipe (see what we used below!)
Holiday Drink Ideas
Really these are as simple as mixing a batch of your favorite Christmas cocktails and filling the ornaments. To give them a little extra flare, I decided to do pink and mint green!
To make a mint green peppermint cocktail, I mixed creme de menthe, rumchata, and milk.
For the pink cocktails, I mixed Chambord with rumchata and crushed peppermints (where the pink tint comes from!).
We were just playing around with flavors in the studio, so you can totally mix and match proportions of each to get the flavor you like!
How to Serve the Christmas Cocktails in Ornaments
Fill the ornaments using a measuring cup or funnel, then serve over ice in a cocktail glass!
If you don’t want to prep each glass for guests, you can always fill a bowl with crushed ice and sit each bulb upright for guests to be able to grab them as they wish!
Pretty cute, right?! Now all guests have to do is pick up their glass, pour the liquid in over ice, and enjoy!
