Celebrate the Season with our Festive Holiday Drinks
WRITTEN BY HAROLD DEAN, OUR FOOD AND BEVERAGE DIRECTOR.
During this time of year, it’s fun for our bartenders to get creative and make some unique drinks in celebration of the holiday season. The inspiration to create these festive drinks can come from anything at all – from a favorite holiday movie like “The Grinch” to a memorable childhood experience, such as roasting marshmallows over a bonfire.
The key to making the favorite holiday drink is experimenting with different flavor profiles, as well as different garnishes. Some of our best ideas for drinks have come from going down the candy isle and brainstorming how we can incorporate different types of candy – pop rocks, orange slices, mints, sweet tarts, and even blow pops – as garnishes to add that special touch to a drink.
Here are a few of our favorite holiday drink recipes, including a how-to video featuring Eddie making the Smores Martini. Any one of these drinks can be ordered at Golden Ocala, but you may like it so much you want to make it at home as well!
