‘Tis the season for entertaining, and as you prepare for parties, dinners, and gatherings, we wanted to share your next go-to drink of choice: bottled cocktails.
Whether you’re hosting and looking for a creative way to serve beverages, or if the normal bottle of wine as a host or hostess gift is feeling a bit stale, look no further than bottled cocktails to either serve at home or bring along with you to your next Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.
Below are a couple great recipes from top NYC bartenders Pam Wiznitzer (Seamstress) and Leo Robitschek (NoMad)!
1 ½ oz. Vanilla Syrup
1 oz. Strawberry Puree*
1 ½ oz. Lemon Juice
3 oz. Cognac
4 dashes Orange Bitters
*Strawberry Puree: In a blender, add 1 cup of strawberries and 2 tablespoons water. Blend and then fine strain into a container.
Build ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake generously. Funnel into cocktail bottle and enjoy with a side of Panettone! To make for a crowd, simply multiply components by six and serve into six individual bottles, or pour into a decorative punch bowl or pitcher.
