EVERY TIME YOU’RE HERE I’M WORRIED I’M GOING TO MESS IT UP. THANKS SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME, CHRISTMAS IS RIGHT AROUND THE BEND YESTERDAY YOU HAD THAT GRINCH FELLA ON, TODAY I’M GOING TO PROVIDE SOME FESTIVE COCKTAILS TODAY THAT NO GRINCH IS INVOLVED THE FIRST I HAVE IS A SANTA CLAUSMOPOLOTAIN, IT STARTS OUT WITH RUSSIA STANDARD VODKA, NO COLLUSION ON THIS VODKA BY THE WAY, STRAIGHT RUSSIAN STANDARD WE’LL ADD A LITTLE BIT OF CRANBERRY JUICE, STRAIGHT CRANBERRY JUICE, WE HAVE CRANBERRY PEACH JUICE AS WELL, THIS IS A STEP UP OF AN ORANGE TO THAT, WE’RE GOING TO SHAKE THIS UP, WHEN I SHAKE THIS UP HEATHER I’M GOING TO NEED YOUR HELP I LIKE YOU TO HAVE THAT GLASS PUT A LITTLE WATER AROUND IT AND COCONUT WHICH WILL GIVE US THE RIM TO THE SANTA CLAUS HAT. THERE WE GO. THAT’S PERFECT. AS WE POUR THIS IN YOU’LL NOTICE WE TURN A REGULAR COSMOPOLITAN TO A SANTA CLAUSMOPOLITAN. THE PROOF IS IN THE TASTING ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS OF ALL TIMES TO DRINK AROUND THIS TIME OF YEAR TOO IF WE GO OUT IS TO GET A BAILEY ON THE ROCKS. THAT’S GOOD. ISN’T THAT GREAT? THAT’S DECEIVING TOO. IT IS SO SWEET AND YUMMY. WHAT WE HAVE NEXT IS A BAILEYS PEPPERMINT CREAM WE’LL ADD A LITTLE BIT OF BAILEY’S IRISH CREAM, AN OUNCE AND A HALF. WE’LL TAKE ANOTHER SIP OF THIS, PLEASE DO, ENJOY. WE’LL TOP THAT OFF WITH SOME HOT CHOCOLATE THAT I BREWED HERE THIS MORNING. TO MAKE IT EXTRA FANCY WE’LL ADD WHIP CREAM ON THE TOP. IT REALLY IS SIMPLE. SO WATCH THIS. WHAT I DID WAS CRUSH SOME CANDY CANES WE’LL ADD THAT TO THE TOP TO MAKE IT EXTRA FANCY AND EXTRA FESTIVE. NOW YOU HAVE BAILEY’S PEPPERMINT CREAM. DON’T MIND IF I DO. VERY GOOD. THE NEXT ONE WE HAVE IS A DRINK CALLED DAMN GOOD CRANBERRY, THE DAM IS NEW AMSTERDAM VODKA, SO WE’LL ADD AN OUNCE OF THAT. AND THEN WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO IS ADD A LITTLE BIT OF CRANBERRY JUICE TO IT. THIS REALLY MAKES IT LOOK NICE THESE ARE ACTUALLY FRESH CRANBERRIES WE’LL ADD THAT TO THE COCKTAIL. KIND OF LIKE SANGRIA. TOP IT OFF WITH GINGER ALE ALSO VERY DECEIVING AND DELICIOUS. THE DECEIVING PART WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WHEN WE TALK ABOUT COCKTAILS WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DRINK RESPONSIBLY THAT’S ALWAYS A GOOD PRACTICE. THIS TIME OF YEAR WE’LL HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE AROUND THE HOUSE AND WE WANT TO ENJOY OUR TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY SO DRINK RESPONSIBLY. USUALLY PEOPLE ARE COMING TO YOUR HOUSE FOR A GATHERING SO MOST PEOPLE THAT ARE DRINKING MAY NEED TO LEAVE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THAT DESIGNATED DRIVE, SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT. WE’RE MAKING A PUNCH I’M JUST GOING TO SLIDE THESE OVER THIS WAY AND MAKE THE PUNCH OVER HERE IF THAT’S OKAY, WE’RE KIND OF DOING A THROW BACK TO THE OLD DAYS WHEN PEOPLE MADE PUNCHES AND PEOPLE ENJOYED THEMSELVES AROUND THE PUNCH BOWL TO MAKE THIS EXTRA FESTIVE GO AHEAD, WHAT I DID WAS BECAUSE THIS RECIPE CALLS FOR STRAWBERRIES IN IT CALLS FOR ICE IN YOUR PUNCH BOWL I ADDED STRAWBERRIES TO A BUNT PAN POURED WATER IN THERE AND MADE A STRAWBERRY ICE RING. WHAT ARE YOU CALLING THIS? THIS IS CALLED MISTLETOE PUNCH. TO HAVE SOME LOOSE STRAWBERRIES IN THERE AS WELL. WE’LL ADD THAT INTO THE MIX, WE’LL TOP IT OFF WITH A FULL TWO LITERS OF GINGERALE AND A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE, THIS IS THE REAL DEAL, DO YOU WANT ME TO START POURING THIS IN? WHY SHOULD I HAVE ALL THE FUN. EXACTLY CHAMPAGNE IS ACTUALLY CHAMPAGNE FROM CHAMPAGNE FRANCE, THAT’S ONE, I THINK WE’RE GREAT. LET US KNOW WHEN IT COMES OVER THE TOP. WOULD YOU DO THIS FOR DINNER OR AFTER DINNER OR HAVE A PARTY? I THINK IT IS GREAT FOR A PARTY, HAVE A PUNCH BOWL, THE NICE THING ABOUT THAT ICE RING IS IT MELTS VERY SLOWLY AND THE STRAWBERRIES WILL COME OUT OF THERE AS IT MELTS. YOU ADDED EXTRA STRAWBERRIES. GO AHEAD — DO YOU JUST PUT THIS IN THERE? WE’LL GARNISH THE ACTUAL PUNCH WITH THAT THIS IS JUST A LITTLE BIT OF ROSEMARIRY JUST TO GIVE IT A LITTLE FESTIVE PINEY LOOK TO IT WE’LL HEAD TO BREAK WITH A NICE LITTLE CHEERS FIND OUT HOW TO MAKE THESE RECIPES BY VISITING
