Expert Tips for Making Poinsettia Cocktail Recipes

  • Switch up the alcohols: Alcohols that go well with champagne are vodka, gin, rum, brandy and cognac. There are a multitude of liqueurs you can also add like the orange variety we have added to the cocktail today but you could also add Chambord or any berry liqueur.
  • Garnish your drinks: Cut a long skinny slice of peel from an orange, including some of the pith also. Wind the orange slice around a skewer, pencil, etc., depending on how tight you would like the curl. The fruit will maintain the curl on its own. It is as easy as that.
  • Double the recipe: If you are having a lot of guests over, double your recipe for a larger crowd.
