New Year's Cocktail

Does anyone have a suggestion for a modern "hip" cocktail for New Years Eve? I'm already planning to do a grapefruit and pomegranate vodka drink.

  1. Try this one.

    Midnight Express
    1 1/2 oz Myers Dark Rum
    1/2 oz Grand Mariner
    3/4 oz Lime Juice
    Splash of Sour Mix

    Combine all ingredients in a shaker and serve on the rock in a s short glass.

    1. Here's an idea (this makes 2 LARGE drinks):

      1 cup Charbay Blood Orange Vodka
      1/2 cup X-Rated Fusion Liqueur

      Combine in an ice-filled shaker and strain into 2 large martini glasses. Garnish with a blood orange slice.

      1. I had a cocktail party pre-Christmas and served a champagne cocktail consisting of a decent sparkling white wine (I use Christalino from Spain) with Knudson's sparkling soda, cranberry flavor.Any fruit flavor would work. Fill the flutes to about a third then top with the colorful soda.
        It's nice and light for those who don't want to drink liquor.

        1. Pear Champagne cocktails:

          Pear brandy
          Pear nectar
          Champagne/sparkling wine/prosecco
          Top off with Grand Marnier
          Garnish with pear slice

          1. After all these years I still prefer White Russians
            pinch of nutmeg
