Vegan Holiday Cocktails

Before the last leaf falls, I begin my annual craving for a cup of cheer.  One of my favorite movies to watch during the holiday season is Little Women (1994) (Love my classic feminist literature!).  I always melt at the scenes where the March sisters treasure their oranges, which in post Civil-War America, void of two-day shipping, would have appeared on only the most stylish Instagrams.  Oranges were the dragon fruit smoothie bowl of their day.

So I always think of the March sisters when I decorate oranges with cloves or receive a gift box of Florida oranges.  This year I’m taking it a step further and trying out some new yummy drinks with Devotion Blood Orange Vodka, which I recently discovered.  Finding top-shelf vegan alcohol can be tricky so when I do, I like to share.  All of Devotion’s vodkas are vegan, gluten-free, non-gmo, sugar-free, made from corn and multi-distilled.

MISTLETOE

I found this delicious drink while searching around on Pinterest (follow me) and updated it to please my palate.  It’s super easy to make.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 parts Devotion Blood Orange Vodka

3/4 parts Lemon Juice

3/4 parts Cranberry Juice

Directions:

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and then strain into a glass.  You could garnish with a sprig of rosemary, cranberries or my preference, a slice of a blood orange.

A LONG WINTER’S NAP

I love the cold weather ritual of a cup of hot cocoa before bed.  It’s fun to get creative and really make it special.  Here’s the one I’ve been making lately.

Ingredients:

8oz. of Hot Cocoa made with Vanilla Almond Milk

1/4 tsp. of Vanilla Bean Paste

1 Tblsp. Agave

1 shot of Frangelico

Directions:

First make your hot cocoa on the stove with vanilla almond milk and a packet of hot cocoa, as directions on the package indicate.  I like these two cocoa mixes from Starbucks and Ghiradelli’s, which are naturally vegan.

Once the cocoa is mixed and hot on the stove, remove from heat and stir in the agave and vanilla bean paste.  Then pour into a large mug and add a shot of Frangelico, which is vegan and tastes like hazelnut.

Now load it up with some marshmallows.  Dandie’s and Sweet & Sara make the best vegan marshmallows.
