You guys! I’m not going to lie to you, I’m patting myself on the bag for this one! I just think these Christmas cocktails in ornament glasses are SO STINKING CUTE!
Since this is mostly all about the absolute preciousness that is cocktails in a Christmas ornament, I’m going to mainly stick with the supply lists for how to put these together. When it comes to the cocktail recipes inside them, the sky is the limit!
You could do an old fashioned, martini, dessert cocktail, whatever floats your holiday boat. Before I break down what we put in ours, let me just tell you that this is quite possibly the easiest party DIY ever. Since you can get the ornaments in bulk and prep the cocktails in advance, you can easily make enough for the whole block party!…
CHRISTMAS COCKTAILS IN ORNAMENTS | HOLIDAY DRINK IDEAS
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..
Your favorite 3 ounce cocktail recipe (see what we used below!)
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!
Next, 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!
