Holiday Party Signature Cocktail

Holiday Party Signature Cocktail – The Very Berry Cocktail

Choosing a Holiday Party Signature Cocktail can be a hard one.  Should you choose one with mint? Should you garnish with red and green? There are so many options.  Well, I hosted a party last weekend and I had this very conundrum.  It was for my sisters in Lipstick Sisters LA and I knew this group would appreciate a champagne cocktail.  After a few taste tests, I came up with the Very Berry Cocktail, part Ruby Red Grapefruit, Cranberry Pomegranate juice and champagne and garnished with frozen cranberries to keep it chilled, see full recipe below.

Raspberry Mojito- My Favorite Summer Drink

This week I am making my favorite summertime drink, a Raspberry Mojito. I had this drink as a signature cocktail at a cocktail party I hosted and  it definitely was a great hit.  You can make a pitcher of it beforehand and then just add the club soda as you serve each glass.  Many people get scared off by mojitos, probably because you have to muddle and there are a few more ingredients in them than a regular cocktail.  I love the freshness of the ingredients, and so will your guests, that’s what is great about this particular cocktail.  Your guests will love it and think that you did something so difficult, but you’ll know it was actually pretty simple because I’m going to teach you just how simple it is.

One thing that makes my way of making mojitos different, is that I always strain the mixture before adding it to a glass.  It looks much cleaner, but you also don’t get that salad look in your glass that you have to try not to swallow when you drink….no fun.  That’s why I always strain my mojitos, so much more enjoyable.
