Holiday Cocktails for the Vodka Lover

Holiday Cocktails for the Vodka Lover

Tis the season for fun holiday cocktails and a shit ton of drinking. Well at least that’s what we do in our house. As I’m getting older I just can’t hang anymore and my hangovers are getting brutal. Even my old reliable pal Pinot Noir is letting me down these days and with a couple glasses I’m hurting the am. Luckily, I have no fear with the clear and stick to vodka these days.

I worked with Purity Vodka in the past and loved their vodka. It goes down so smooth and does not leave me with the dreaded hangover. I picked up a bottle as a hostess gift for my sister for hosting Thanksgiving. The bottle is also so pretty you don’t even want to open it. It makes a great vase afterwards too. So, with that said I knew I wanted to be in charge of cocktails this year and make some fun holiday cocktails to fit my new GORGEOUS Orrefors glasses. Nothing says classy like Orrefors.

I then headed to good old Pinterest to see what cocktails would be perfect in my new glasses and this is what I found. Below are my three favorite holiday recipes for the vodka lover. The first one was invented by yours truly and I think it’s so damn pretty. Enjoy and be safe this holiday season!
