For anyone hosting a holiday gathering, Santa granted your wish a few days early. Courtesy of the iconic five-star Hotel Hassler Roma here are three holiday cocktails that are both simple to make and will wow the crowd.
Hotel Hassler, an icon of the capital for its luxuriant hospitality for more than a century, stands proud just a few meters from the Church of the Trinità dei Monti on top of the Spanish Steps. It has recently renovated and it still maintains its high standard of quality and affluence in perfect balance with its historical past, present and future.
And they’re pretty damn good at cocktails too, so we asked them to create a couple of magical holiday cocktails for the Honest Cooking readers.
First: The Christmas Vodka Cooler adds color and vibrancy to your celebrations this Christmas with a refreshing cocktail.
Second: The Spritz Skiwasser (literally “ski-water), is a holiday cocktail that’s festive, light and refreshing.
Third: The Bailey’s Espresso Martini, is rich, creamy and decadent. Perhaps the ultimate holiday cocktail.
