Rum Rum Rudolph

It's the time of year to be making spirits bright, and my 2020 signature holiday cocktail comes courtesy of everyone's favorite reindeer. My husband is a musician, and he released a cover of Run Run Rudolph as a holiday treat for fans this year. Always on the lookout for a reason to whip up a new drinkie drink, I turned my amateur mixology skills toward my own riff on this swingin' Christmas carol.


3/4 ounce Rum

1/2 ounce Grand Marnier

1/8 teaspoon pure Peppermint Extract

1/8 teaspoon maraschino cherry juice

4 1/2 ounces chilled Prosecco to top

Garnish with a "Rudolph Nose" or two (maraschino cherry)


Gently stir ingredients to mix, releasing bubbles.

Serve in a flute or coupe glass. Stream Run Run Rudolph to double your drinking pleasure.
