Welcome, if you have arrived for the party, I hope you enjoyed your last stop at The Amethyst Princess for Jalapeno Poppers!
Here at The Round File house, we like martinis, and this is a special one for Christmas called Santa's Little Helper. I think the recipe originally came from Southern Living or Paula Deen about four years ago but when I did an Internet search to give credit to the original source, I couldn't find it anymore. If you come across it, please come back and let me know!
Santa's Little Helper
Prepare glasses by chilling them in the freezer and then sugaring the rim by rubbing the edge of the rim with a cut lemon and dipping it into sugar.
Put ice. and equal parts vodka and lemonade into a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and pour into the prepared glasses, straining the ice out as you pour. Add a splash of pomegranate juice and a few seeds as a garnish. Because of the laws of physics (which we don't care about unless we're drinking)the pomegranate juice will sink to the bottom making a red bottom with a white top that looks like a stocking- hence the name, Santa's Little Helper.
Enjoy your drink and then your off to Notes from the North for Glogg- Swedish Mulled Wine.
Be sure to visit the Book Blog Social Club where we will be collecting all of the recipes, courses, and posts throughout the week.
Happy dinner party from all the hosts of appetizers and drinks!
