How to create a great house drink for your guests

Are you hosting a holiday party this season? Or maybe you are having family and friends over for Christmas? Either way it is always nice to have a “house drink” (or two) for your guests to enjoy.  We have everything you need to stock your home bar including liquor, liqueurs, bitters, mixers and home bar necessities. Here are a few ideas for some fun Christmas cocktails.

Vanilla Old-Fashioned
1 Vanilla Bean (Split)
1/4 tsp of Orange Zest
1/4 oz Simple Syrup
2 dashes of Orange Bitters
2 ounces of Bourbon (We recommend the Berkshire Bourbon or Noah’s Mill)
Orange wheel for garnish

In a rocks glass muddle the vanilla bean, bitters, syrup and orange zest. Add ice
and bourbon and garnish with orange wheel.

Mistletoe Fizz
3 Maraschino cherries plus 3/4 oz of liquid
Superfine Sugar
3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
1/2 oz of Cherry Liqueur
2 cubes of brown sugar
4 oz of chilled Champagne (We recommend Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Reserve or
    Duval Leroy Brut)

Moisten the rim of a champagne flute with the 1/2 oz of the syrup from the
Maraschino cherries. Coat the rim with the sugar. Sprinkle bitters over the brown
sugar cubes.  Add the cherry liqueur, Maraschino cherries and the remaining cherry
syrup. Top with champagne and sugar cubes
