We're always saying how essential a signature cocktail is to a great party. Not only does a signature sip jazz up your soiree and give guests a clear signal that this is no ordinary night at home, it also plays a key role in keeping you, the host, free from bar duty.
Cocktail parties abound during the Christmas season and though a hostess will already have her hands full with other responsibilities, it's surprisingly easy to duck behind the bar and get stuck there.
Do yourself a favor - mix up a simple signature sip for your soiree, then set up a self-serve bar with all the ingredients and directions clearly laid out for guests to pour themselves a refill!
Like every signature drink, this Santa's Sleigh drink recipe is both delicious and suits the event it's served at. The red color goes with our decor, and we gave it a festive name for the holiday.
1 cup vodka, chilled
3 cups cranberry juice cocktail, chilled
1/2 cup Amaretto liqueur
Combine all the ingredients together and stir well with ice. Strain into glasses and set out for guests!
