Festive Cocktail Recipes December 15, 2015

by Eat

‘Tis the season…to fill your glass!  We know you love wine and trust us, we do too, but this holiday season let’s spike your drink with a little color and festive cheer.  I know it’s early on a Tuesday but it’s 5 o’clock somewhere and we’re making cocktails to celebrate!


Cocktail recipes are amazing because they’re amazing ways to step outside of the typical gin and tonic atmosphere at this year’s party.  Any time a drink involves more than two ingredients and actual steps beyond “add soda” you know the end result is going to be super fancy and delicious.  Let’s cook some drinks!



1½ oz. cognac

1 oz. green crème de menthe

1 oz. white crème de cacao

1 oz. thick cream

½ oz gran marnier

Chocolate shavings


  1. Add everything except for the chocolate shavings into your shaker with ice and shake.
  2. Pour into your glass and add the chocolate shavings on top.
  3. Drink it and enjoy!


Hibiscus Martini


2 ounces Chopin vodka

1/2 ounce Grand Marnier

1 ounce Fresh squeezed lime juice

3/4 ounce Hibiscus syrup* (recipe below)


  1. Make hibiscus Syrup: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil and add 2 tsp dried hibiscus. Cook for 10 minutes and add 1 cup superfine sugar and cook until it dissolves.
  2. Pour vodka and other ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake
  3. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with an edible hibiscus flower.


Champagne cocktail


1 ounce orange liqueur

4 ounces champagne

Mandarin peel, for garnish


  1. Pour liqueur into a champagne flute; top with champagne.
  2. Twist mandarin peel over glass and gently drop into cocktail.


Happy Cooking!

Are you forgetting Puerto Rico? We are part of the U.S. Our postal service is U.S. Postal service. We also have ups and federal express. Please be an educated commerce.
Thank you,
Dr. Dagnes Y. Calderon

So sorry about that! We should say that we deliver everywhere in the contiguous US. Shipping perishables items at such a distance can prove to be somewhat tricky. We’ll let you know if anything changes.

Whoaaa Dr. Dagnes Y Calderon,

I was so excited to find this company. I live in Hawaii which I SADLY found out DOES NOT DELIVER HERE ( even though as you stated WE ALSO GET UPS, FEDEX and US POSTAL DELIVERY ) ..Instead of Berating Hello Fresh I turned my FROWN UPSIDE DOWN ..and am sending the Meal Plan to my Daughter in Central California to Try. If you DEMAND they Deliver to you I guess you could receive hot wilted veggies and meat that took a week to get to you. Other Alternative Pay FEDEX $50+ or UPS Little Cheaper to make your meal over $100… Don’t think HELLO FRESH would get much business doing that. Take a Deep Breath Dr. You just saved $100+

Genna says:

Sorry about that Debbie! Because we deal with locally sourced, perishable food, we only have the capability to ship to the lower 48 states. Apologies for any inconvenience!

Debbie Sullivan says:

No Worries, if I couldn’t try this, I wanted my Daughter and Her Boyfriend to Enjoy It.
First delivery is 4 days away for them. Can hardly wait to hear all about their excitement.
