ABOUT THE JINGLE BALL COCKTAIL
Americans buy somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 million real Christmas trees a year—and they all wind up in the trash. This season, squeeze a little more fun from your #holiday flora with this pine-infused cocktail. All you need are a few fresh twigs, a bottle of #vodka and enough imagination to get you through the next six weeks in one piece. Here’s to branching out. #DrinkoftheWeek #JingleBall #Christmas #Drinks #Cocktails
INGREDIENTS IN THE JINGLE BALL COCKTAIL
Pine-infused vodka, chilled*
HOW TO MAKE THE JINGLE BALL COCKTAIL
Fill a small bowl or plate with crushed ice.
Place a large holiday ornament in the middle of the ice and remove the top.
Add 2 pine sprigs and 8 fresh cranberries.
Pour the chilled pine-infused vodka into the ornament.
Top with the chilled soda water.
Finish with the cranberry juice.
Serve with a straw.
*Pine-infused vodka: Add 3 large pine sprigs into a 750 mL bottle of unflavored vodka, and let sit at room temperature for 24 hours. Strain out sprigs, and store in the freezer indefinitely.
