Receta de sangría de arándanos con vino de Oporto

Sangria is a drink made with red wine and fruit. The word “sangria” is Spanish for “bleeding.” The drink originated in Spain. Sangria is served in a pitcher and has become very popular in the U.S. According to The Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink, the drink’s popularity began after it was introduced by Alberto Heras at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. This version is a festive holiday sangria made with cranberry juice, orange and lemon slices, and Port wine. Thread the fruit onto small skewers or toothpicks so each guest will have a few pieces of fruit in their glass.

Receta de cóctel de la mula de Navidad

Are you ready to bring the Moscow mule into the holiday season? It’s incredibly easy with a festive recipe like the Christmas mule. This warm and inviting take on the popular vodka cocktail is filled with the flavor of pear, cinnamon, and ginger, making it a pleasant sipper for any cold winter night. The Christmas mule recipe is a simple rendition on the refreshing vodka and ginger beer cocktail many of us have come to love. Rather than a clear vodka, we’re opting for a pear-flavored vodka which you can either buy or make at home. You will also need to warm up your favorite ginger beer before adding a single cinnamon stick. This is more than a garnish, though. It infuses the cocktail as you drink and adds to the inviting flavors. You’ll find this to be a fantastic hot cocktail for a casual dinner party, a holiday gathering or a cozy night by the fire. It takes just a few minutes to warm up and mix and you’ll soon be on your way to comforted bliss.

Grzane is the word for “mulled” and galicyjski means “Galician.” The wino (wine) is implied. It’s similar to German gluhwein, French vin chaud, and Swedish glogg. It’s especially popular served outdoors at Christkindlmarkets or Christmas markets and after sledding, skating or other outdoor winter activities. Gluhwein is the most popular cold-weather drink in Europe. It’s an aromatic blend of red wine, sugar, and spices.

Receta de cóctel de Santa’s Whiskey Flip Cocktail

You may know the whiskey flip. It’s a fascinating cocktail that is a true classic, made of whiskey, sugar, egg, and nutmeg. Santa’s whiskey flip is very similar, but we’re adding extra flavors to really give it that warm, soothing feel we look for in holiday drinks. The transformation begins with the whiskey, which is infused with cinnamon sticks for a few days. Then the sugar of the original flip is replaced with amaretto, a favorite winter liqueur. From there, we go traditional, with egg and nutmeg. It creates a luscious drink with a great cream and the flavors of the season. While it’s not necessary, you can add cream as well. The egg produces a slight cream, but having a little extra in the base of the cocktail is great when you’re in the right mood. Either way, this is a fun and classically-styled cocktail that you can share with friends throughout the holidays.

Receta de ponche fresco de arándanos con ginebra Brockmans

A refreshing gin punch is a great addition to any holiday party and this cranberry fresh punch is a fantastic recipe that all your guests will enjoy. It’s simple and you can make it in a few hours before the party, so serving it is easy as well. The cranberry fresh punch was inspired by a Brockmans Gin recipe called the berry fresh cocktail. The mezclation of gin and fruits with a hint of allspice dram is fantastic for winter. While you can use another gin, you’ll find that Brockmans is one of the best options for berry-flavored gin drinks. That’s because its formula incorporates berries and backs off gin’s signature juniper flavor. The punch recipe creates approximately about 15 4-ounce servings, so it’s the perfect size for an intimate holiday party.

Receta de cóctel de Caipirini con pera picante

The spiced pear caipirini is a delightful rendition of the caipirini, which is in itself a neat variation of the caipirinha. All are brilliant drinks to pour cachaça into and, because it features pear and warm spices, this recipe is ideal for autumn and winter celebrations. This cocktail recipe was created by Naren Young for Leblon Cachaça. It avoids its predecessors’ characteristic lime altogether, opting instead for the delightful mezclation of pear and lemon. Add to that the charming spice mixture of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg and you have a great drink for any occasion.

Hacer licor casero de ginebra de endrinas para Navidad

Some say there is no better use for sloes than in a Sloe Gin. Christmas would never be the same without a bottle (or using Vodka depending on your tipple), but Sloe Gin is also a lovely liqueur to drink at any time. Ideally, sloes should be picked after the first frosts, but when they are ripe and ready to pick depends on where you live so expect to be out foraging from late August through till October—fortunately this still gives enough time for soaking ready for Christmas. Sloes are found on the Blackthorn bush. In full fruit, there is no prettier sight on an autumn morning and the sloes look not unlike a bunch of grapes. However, unlike biting into a ripe, juicy grape will delight, eating a sloe will be a serious disappointment. The fruit is hard and the taste bitter and grainy.
