MISTLETOE KISS COCKTAIL

Updated: Dec 19, 2021

Have you ever looked at a recipe and thought to yourself that there was absolutely no way it was going to taste good? That is exactly what we thought when we came across the recipe for this Mistletoe Kiss! Literally three main ingredients - vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup - a sure recipe for a bitter beer face, right?!


Well, we were completely and utterly WRONG! This cocktail is not only simple, but it is also super affordable for a batch cocktail AND it is absolutely, positively delightful!


The Mistletoe Kiss Cocktail being served in an ornament shaped cup that says Happy Holiday's. The cocktail is placed on a red charger with a small decorative tree behind it and cranberry's and pine needles scattered on the charger.

We served this at house 4 of our progressive dinner, in these super cute Christmas ornament glasses we found at the Family Dollar store, alongside mashed potatoes and stuffed cabbage rolls and it was the perfect compliment to such a dinner!


We went the batch recipe route, but will also include a recipe for a smaller amount of drinks for you as well!
