Festive Mixology: The Grinch

And the Grinch with his Grinch feet, ice cold in the snow. Stood puzzling and puzzling, How could it be so? It came without ribbons, it came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags! And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! Maybe Christmas he thought, doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!

The Grinch was definitely onto something. Add a layer of fun to this thought and brew up a cocktail in honor of this green critter. Behold: The Grinch Martini!


1 ounce melon liqueur

2 ounces citrus vodka

1 ounce white cranberry juice


Candy Cane


Combine melon liqueur, citrus vodka, and white cranberry juice in an ice-filled shaker. Shake vigorously, and strain into a cocktail glass. Add cherries. Garnish with a Candy Cane or crushed Candy Cane around the rim. Another option is to blend for a chilly taste!
