It’s 4 days to Christmas and I have been a bit slow with posting this Christmas Margarita recipe! It’s been the usual mad December rush, as a self employed chef, this is the craziest time of the year for me.
I was still doing some present shopping today, after my last job of the year! No more work after today, until next year, I declined all requests and fully intend to enjoy the holidays with the family!
So, you won’t be getting a long spiel from me today, just a recipe – for the most part! You know I love my margaritas, I have a few of them on this blog, like:
I wanted to make a margarita with some sort of Christmas spices and aroma. And when I made Krupnik, the Polish Spiced Vodka and Honey Liqueur last month (image below), I just knew I wanted to use it in the Christmas Margarita. It has the citrusy spicy aroma one associates with Christmas, and makes a delicious winter cocktail, no festivities needed!
Krupnik is very easy to make, takes about 15 minutes, then you let it steep overnight and strain. It’s perfect to drink immediately, but also improves after a week or few. So you still have time to make the krupnik, then the Christmas margarita! You get 2 drinks for the price of one! Click here for the Krupnik recipe.
So if you fancy a new Christmas cocktail recipe, here’s the Christmas Margarita recipe, are you a fan of margaritas?
Until I see you again, have a wonderful Christmas!
