most wonderful busiest time of the year. Luckily for you, we’ve made the perfect after-hours drink. Impress your friends, family, and co-workers this season with this, Holiday Cocktail: Jolly Jingle Juice.
We can’t be held liable for any embarrassing photos that may be taken. So drink responsibly!
- 2 oz alcohol of your choice
- 2 oz sweetened chai tea
- 1 oz cranberry juice
- 3/4 oz Blackberry Simple Syrup
- Eyeball club soda to taste (optional)
These measurements are for a single serving. Our office is full of thirsty employees, so we made much making bigger batches. You can find all ingredients at your local market, ours were from BevMo.
Let’s Get Started
First things first, you’ll need to make the chai tea. You’ll want to start brewing this well in advance so it’ll cool down and to prevent the ice from melting and diluting your drink.
Crush a few blackberries in a little bowl while adding in about 1/2 oz of simple syrup. Mix until there is a consistent solid color and if you want you can remove any big berry pieces. We left a couple of chunks in the mixture to give it that rustic DIY look.
Pour in the remainder of your ingredients. If you prefer a sweeter drink, feel free to add more simple syrup. Adjust the measurements to your (or your guests) liking.
Add ice to your cup, pour your drink, and enjoy. If you have a little skewer, you can poke a few blackberries to garnish and beautify your concoction.
Remember you do not have to follow this recipe or the measurements word for word. It’s all about your preferences, so have this holiday season and don’t forget to drink responsibly. Cheers!
