Merry Christmas to all our friends from The Red Shaker.
Oh, and if Santa didn’t bring you what you hoped for why don’t you try leaving him this next year instead of cookies and milk:
Santa’s Little Helper
3 shots Pennsylvania Dutch Eggnog Liquor
1 shot Vanilla Vodka
1 shot Chambord
1/2 shot heavy cream or heaping spoonful of fresh whipped cream
Shake all of the above with ice, strain, pour, garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg if you prefer.
A couple of these and Santa will leave you whatever you want. Creamy, luscious, not overly sweet- a delightful holiday martini. You get a subtle hint of the Chambord with just a bite of the rum/whiskey/brandy notes in the eggnog liquor. I made it with just plain heavy cream, but think it would be a knockout with a scoop of freshly whipped cream instead.
This one is skating perilously close to 5 olives. Now we know why Rudolph’s nose was really red.
Ho Ho Ho indeed.
