Santa's Hat Cocktail

Mix up a festive cocktail that looks like an upside down Santa hat.

The fluffy rim on this glass is made with coconut, which is the perfect edible match for the fur on St. Nick's cap. It'll add a festive touch to your Christmas drinks menu, and your guests will be super impressed with how creative you are!

  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon water
  • 1/4 Cup sweetened, flaked coconut
  • 3 ounces red cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce Malibu Rum
  • 1/2 ounces grenadine
  • 1 candy cane

Mix together powdered sugar and water until smooth.

Fold a paper towel into a 4-inch square and lay it on a saucer.

Spread the powdered sugar mixture on top of the towel on the saucer.

Spread coconut in a shallow layer on another saucer.

Dip the rim of a Martini glass in the sugar mixture on the towel until the rim is coated.

Then, dip the sugared rim into the coconut. Use a spoon to pack the coconut on to the sugar coating so it stays on the rim.

Add the cranberry juice, Malibu rum and grenadine into a cocktail shaker with ice.

Shake and strain into a prepared Martini glass and serve.

Garnish with a candy cane. Break off the top hook of the candy cane if desired. Your guests will love your Christmas cocktails selection!
