North Pole Christmas Shooter

  • 1 1/2 oz. of Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
  • 1 1/2 oz. melon liqueur

This is a layered shot – for best effect use a tall thin liquor glass. Pour half of the Chambord shot first, and then slowly pour half of the melon liqueur shot over the back of a spoon into glass. If done correctly, you should have a layered red and green shot perfect for the holiday season.

Peppermint Patty

  • 1 oz. peppermint schnapps
  • 1/2 oz. dark cr?me de cacao
  • 1 tsp. cr?me de menthe
  • 8 oz. hot cocoa
  • Whipped cream and chocolate shavings to taste

Combine the liquors with the hot chocolate and gently stir until all the flavors are combined. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Ginger Snap

  • 3/4 oz. spiced rum
  • 4 oz. eggnog

Combine ingredients and gently blend in blender. The kick of ginger will be sure to warm you up and clear your sinuses in no time.

Snowballs Cold

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • 1/3 cup cr?me de cacao
  • 1/3 cup Kahlua

Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Simple but rich, this is the perfect drink to cool you off after hours spent in overheated Gelman.

Classic Eggnog

  • 4 egg yokes
  • 1/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tbsp.
  • 1 pt. whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 oz. bourbon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 4 egg whites

Beat egg yokes until they lighten in color. Gradually add 1/3 cup of sugar and continue to beat until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the milk, cream, bourbon and nutmeg and stir until everything is combined. Set aside.
Beat the egg whites with a mixer until soft peaks form. Keep mixing, gradually adding in 1 teaspoon of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Combine the egg whites with the mixture of egg yokes and bourbon and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
