Holly Jolly Christmas Citrus Cocktail - Ginja B

Holly Jolly Christmas Citrus Cocktail

Welcoming in Christmas with this Holly Jolly Christmas Citrus Cocktail. A delicious mix of vodka, St. Germain (elderflower liquor), and fresh squeezed winter citrus juice. All mixed together and topped with bubbly ginger beer and extra festive pomegranates. It’s so simple, refreshing, cheerful, and beyond good. Serve this festive cocktail pitcher style for friends and family this Christmas.

Inspired by the all the in-season winter citrus. This cocktail is heavy on the freshly squeezed citrus juice, sweetened with ginger beer, and made boozy with a mix of vodka and St. Germain (elderflower liquor). Just mix everything up in a cocktail glass or pitcher, top with fizzy ginger beer and festive pomegranates, and done. Simple and perfect.

I used clementine juice, but blood orange juice, or even grapefruit juice are both really great options. If you go with blood oranges, you’ll end up with a very festive red cocktail. You can easily make this ahead of time for all your holiday parties. Just be sure to add the ginger beer right before serving so that it does not lose any of it’s fizz!
