Icy Winter Cocktail:
Our Icy winter Cocktail looks beautiful as a place setting at a special winter event. Or on a toasting tray.
We added curaçao for the sweetness and the beautiful blue color. The combination of these elements works great together.
However, We do have a few tips for the very best experience with this drink.
We recommend you use a smooth, higher grade vodka. A cheap harsh vodka will give you a sharp flavor that is not desirable. Choose a sweet sparkling white wine or champagne like Prossecco or Moscato rather than dry.
A sweet Champagne or sparkling white wine blends well with the lemon juice, vodka and curaçao to create a lovely bubbly drink you will enjoy.
Total Wine has a good selection of wines and champagnes if you are buying online.
This drink is a better toasting cocktail than party hardy drink. There is a lot of alcohol in the Icy Winter Cocktail. Just one of these is all you will need.
