The fall equinox is long gone and the days have noticeably chilled, so we’re sharing a seasonally inspired cocktail off of our fall cocktail menu to match. It’s a pretty simple cocktail, but full of delicious seasonal flavors, and one that lends itself well to making by the pitcher if you want to serve it to a group for holiday gatherings!
Tongue Twister (aka Merry & Bright)
2 oz Twisted Citrus Vodka
1¼ oz Cranberry Juice
¾ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
¾ oz Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Simple
Shake ingredients with ice, then strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice. Garnish with an orange swath.
Pitcher Recipe (for 8 drinks):
If you want to make these in bulk in a pitcher, you can simply multiply the ingredients by the number of servings you’re aiming to make, and add 1.25 oz of water for each one. Then, you can skip the shaking! Serve over fresh ice – it’s best not to put ice into the pitcher, as it will further dilute the drink. As you probably know, part of a great cocktail is a bit of dilution, so that water helps bring everything together and balance it all out. Below is a recipe for a pitcher of 8 drinks:
16 oz Twisted Citrus Vodka
8 oz Cranberry Juice
6 oz Lemon
6 oz Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Simple
10 oz Water
Combine ingredients in a pitcher. Serve over fresh ice & garnish with an orange or lemon swath.
