Holiday Cocktails

Caution: not for underage consumption.

I know it looks fun and fruity, but this drink is for adults only.

You know. Mature people who like to drink fun and fruity alcoholic drinks.

Yep that’s me. Some people are wine drinkers. And some of us like drinks with garnishes.

Once upon a time, I loved a glass of wine with dinner. Or after dinner. Heck, even a glass of wine before dinner was a nice way to relax.

But then my migraines got so bad, I had to cut wine out of my diet. (and everything else made with sulfites, nitrates, and nitrites)

Ingredient Notes

  • Peach Schnappsadds a hint of flavor you’ll love
  • RumI use the citrus rum, but any variety works
  • Orange juicepineapple juice will also work with this recipe
  • Lemon-lime pop7Up or Sprite work great, cut some of the sugar and use club soda!
  • Blue Curacao liquorthis is what turns your drink green!

So, it’s cocktail time for me! Which means, it’s cocktail recipe time for the blog. And that means, cocktails for everyone!

My good friend Kari made these Grinch cocktails for us last year. I gave you the serving size for 4 cocktails below, but as you can see, it’s so easy to adjust for more or less. You can also add more lemon-lime pop if you don’t want it as strong! You can also pour it all into a punch bowl and have Grinch Punch!

And, because you all know how much I love making videos now, haha, you can see my hands in action!

Happy Holidays!

  1. Saw this during a last minute adventure to the liquor store for this year’s Christmas. Its not a very happy one so we were looking for something grinch themed . Came right up w this. Made it with some crushed ice as soon as we got home and my husband loves it . We used his favorite captain Morgan rum and added some cherry juice for extra flare and it came out great! Like a bleeding grinch drink. It was a hit. Thank u. My first mix drink i ever made hes impressed .

  2. Aw, too bad you can’t have wine anymore… but these Grinchy drinks look awesome! Def making these this weekend for me and my friends! 🙂 

  3. Kitschy Christmas cocktails are the bomb. I usually don’t like fruity drinks, but when it has a fun name, I’m all “oh, okay, let’s try that!” I’m all for partying with the grinch.

  4. Such a GREAT video! These are seriously the cutest most festive and most delish looking drinks! The holidays will never be the same after these lovelies are served! LOVE LOVE LOVE 🙂

  5. Another awesome video! And it was great to watch, because I was wondering how you got that perfect Grinch color. Seeing it was believing it! 🙂
