A cosmopolitan is a very popular drink, especially among the female crowd, as they have a hint of sophistication to them, yet they have a great twist of sweetness.
But why stop at a standard cosmo when you can make this festive Santaclausmopolitan?
We took the classic drink and added some fun crushed candy canes to the rim and called it a SANTAclausmopolitan. If you don’t have candy canes try mixing a little granulated sugar with some red food coloring.
How to Sugar Rim a cocktail glass?
- Start with a plate or shallow bowl of water, lime juice or lemon juice then dip in the rim of your glass.
- Evenly dip the rim into the crushed candy canes.
How To Make a Santaclausmopolitan:
- After festively decorating the rim of the martini glass, simply mix the ingredients in the recipe card below in a cocktail shaker
- Strain the santaclausmopolitan into the glass and enjoy!
What to pair with a Santaclausmopolitan:
A cosmopolitan provides the perfect backdrop to these Maple Honey & Walnut Cream Cheese Phyllo Bites or a Charcuterie platter.
