#FridayCocktail – Classic Holiday Tales of Childhood

By / Wine + Drinks / December 20th, 2013 / 2

Have some fun and enjoy one of these cocktails inspired by Dr. Suess and our favourite Christmas Snowman.

‘Tis the season!

The Grinch


2 ounces of Midori melon liqueur

½ ounce of fresh lime juice

1 tsp simple syrup


Maraschino cherry for garnish


Pour the Midori, lime juice, syrup and a handful of ice into a cocktail shaker.

Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail (Martini) glass.

Garnish with a maraschino cherry. See, the Grinch does have a heart!

Frosty the Snowman (a.k.a. Frosty’s afterlife)


3 ounces of eggnog

1 ½ ounces of spiced rum

1 ounce of crème de cacao

1 scoop of vanilla ice cream

Chocolate chips for garnish


Blend the eggnog, rum, crème de cacao and ice cream until smooth.

Pour into a chilled glass of your choice and sprinkle with a few chocolate chips…poor Frosty has melted away.


Shannon is an urban soul living (and loving) a small-town, country life. Short term goals include always keeping her wine glass, and outlook on life, half-full. Long term goal…taking her three boys on a 6 month south Pacific adventure. We’ll keep you updated.
