The Bad Santa Cocktail

Recipe: The Bad Santa Cocktail NEW


    A drink you can serve at Christmas or throughout the year. We named this drink the Bad Santa but you can name it whatever suits your fancy.

This will make approximately 15 drinks


    1 cup of Cointreau (or if you are on a tighter budget use Triple Sec)
    2 cups of brandy (regular brandy; not cognac)
    3 cups of orange juice (non-pulp variety would be best)
    1 bottle of sparkling wine or champagne. (recently I used Proseco and it worked great. It's cheaper).


    Put it all in a pitcher and stir

Serving Suggestions:

    Then serve in cocktail glasses over ice. You can garnish with a cherry to be even more festive. I always have to have at least 2 bottles of champagne around because the first pitcher goes fast.

Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
