We recently brought you a game day ready Smirnoff Ice Original Julep Kentucky-inspired cocktail recipe to help liven up your football season… and, well, if you’ve hung out with me for any length of time on Rural Mom, you know I never stop at just one recipe when there is more culinary fun to be had!  As we are knee-deep to a grasshopper into the holiday season and counting down the days until Christmas, a holiday spirited cocktail is also a must-have!

Christmas On The Beach Cocktail Recipe #GameDayReady

Last year, we headed further south to the sunny shores of Florida right after Christmas and with the cold weather settling in in Kentucky, I’m definitely ready to migrate in the southern direction again.  As I can’t pack up the car and go right now, I was inspired by the Smirnoff Ice Screwdriver flavor to bring a little “beach” into our holiday celebrations with a breezy, fruity cocktail concoction (cocktail umbrellas optional!)  Close your eyes as you take a sip and drift off to sunset evenings of digging your toes in the sand and watching the waves roll in.
