The weather outside is getting cold and frosty. And Christmas is in the air. Time for a few fabulous Yuletide Libations.
These delicious drinks will not only quench your thirst but are a real treat!
A wonderful libation when you are feeling a little under the weather, your throat is scratchy, you are stressed or you just need to warm up. Don't let the cute name fool you, this is a potent alcoholic beverage... One to sip on for the evening. Remember, moderation!
1 1/2 oz. brandy or whiskey
1 tsp honey
3 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick
1 large slice of lemon
Put brandy or whiskey in a mug. Add boiling water. Stir in 1 tsp of honey. Add cloves and a cinnamon sticks. Drop in the lemon slice and let the whole things steep for 5 minutes. Sip and enjoy.
This is a very yummy treat! Cold and filling. I am a huge eggnog fan, so this is Christmas in a cup to me.
1 cup lo fat eggnog
1 cup vanilla frozen yogurt
6 ice cubes
lo fat whipped topping
dash of nutmeg
1 shot of brandy or rum (optional)
Add everything, except whipped topping, in in a blender and give it a good whizz. Pour it into a glass and add whipped topping. If desired, dust with a little extra nutmeg.
This is a must try! And sooooo pretty! I love prosecco, a lovely dry sparkling white wine. Most people think it is Champagne. If you don't want to splurge on a good Champagne, then try Prosecco.
Fill a sugar rimmed glass 1/4 full of Pomegranate juice and top off with Prosecco. For extra pizazz, drop a sugar cube in the bottom of the drink. Ooooh, bubbly!
