Thirsty Thursday - Holiday Cocktails from Great Hotels

Today's 'Thirsty Thursday' features festive holiday cocktails created by bartenders at some of the top hotels in the United States.  I can't wait to try some of these at home over the next month!

How pretty is this drink? It is the Sugar Plum Dreams cocktail from the Mansion Bar at the Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas. Available in December only, it is made with Pisco (Peruvian brandy), Sugar Plum reduction and lemon juice. The recipe is here.

The S'Mores Martini from The Peninsula Chicago is decadence in a glass. Made with Bourbon, Butterscotch Schnapps, Godiva chocolate and Marshmallow Fluff, it will keep you warm and toasty. The recipe is here.

This little glass of heaven known as the Mint and Chip is from the Bleau Bar at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami. Made from rum, white créme de cacao, green créme de mint, and half-n-half, this is clearly a special occasion cocktail. The recipe is here.

Bartender at The Fairmont, San Francisco, Max Scherff  created the eponymous, Max's Hot Apple Pie, with Stoli Vanilla vodka, Butterscotch Schnapps, hot apple cider and whipped cream. It tastes just like being home for the holidays. The recipe is here.
 
Cheers to the Holiday Season!!!

The Hot Apple Pie looks perfect for Christmas! Lovely photo of Prague in your last post - I love Christmas markets - I have been to a German one and we have a big European one in the North of England in Manchester which we shall be visiting once again this year as it's just forty minutes away.

These look interesting! I love the Prague market photos, I have not been to the markets there but have been to several other European Christmas markets and I do enjoy them.

I hope you are having a great week, Elizabeth
