One of the joys of booking your winter vacation at Tahoe Vacation Rentals is the convenient access to a kitchen during your stay, to whip up mouth-watering aprés ski at your leisure! No waiting in lines for a delicious drink to wet your whistle after a fun day on the slopes. Retreat to your cozy rental, mix a fun cocktail, and watch the snow fall from the comfort of your home away from home.
We know there are all kinds of trending cocktails, but listed here are our tried-and-true top drinks of the season to mix up this holiday season!
The Classic Negroni is all about balance and a beautiful ruby colour. Mix 30ml sweet vermouth, 30ml Campari, and 30ml Gin. Pour the ingredients over ice in an old-fashioned glass and stir for 20-30 seconds until the outside of the glass turns cold. Garnish with a blood orange twist or use grapefruit for a sour tang! Stir this drink, don’t shake it and switch out Gin for Prosecco for an ideal aperitif.
Sea Salt Eggnog Cocktail
This easy boozy cocktail is sweet and a bit salty, giving you all the holiday vibes as the most classic of festive drinks! Rim a cocktail glass with coarse salt and caramel sauce, shake together 1 ounce Amaretto, 1 ounce vodka, 2 ounces store bought eggnog, pinch of nutmeg, and pinch of cinnamon with ice. Strain into your chilled glass and garnish with a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon stick.
Spiced Apple Hot Toddy
This cinnamon infused cocktail will warm you up from head to toe! Place 750ml sparking apple cider in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add 2tbl honey and a cinnamon stick and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes. Pour 180ml of brandy into a glass and top with some of the cider mixture. You’ll have plenty of cinnamon and honey infused apple cider left over to share with others or to pour more drinks. Kids can enjoy the cider straight from the pan. You can even make this drink using a slow cooker on low setting! You can also use bourbon in this recipe if you don’t have brandy on hand.
Cheers! (And remember to consume responsibly!)
