3 Ways to Make "Ornamentinis" (Martinis Served in Ornaments)

Surprise your guests this holiday season with booze-filled Christmas ornaments.

By: Jacquelyn McGilvray

Sassy Snowball Martinis

Ingredients: (serves two)

  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 1/2 cup blue Curacao
  • cotton candy
  • coconut flakes

Mix the first four ingredients together in a pitcher. Place a dollop of cotton candy in a martini glass and then sprinkle with some coconut flakes. Pour cocktail mixture into a clear ornament. Place the cap on the ornament then lay the ornament in the martini glass. You can place the ornaments in the fridge until it’s time to serve. When you’re ready to drink, pour the mixture over the cotton candy and watch it melt, like snow, then drink up. 

Merry Mint-inis


  • 1 cup of gin
  • 1/2 cup lemonade
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tbsp Creme de Menthe
  • 1 tbsp peppermint syrup

Mix all the ingredients together in a pitcher. Pour the mixture into the ornaments. A muffin tin works well for holding the ornaments upright while you pour. Place caps on the ornaments and lay them in an ice bucket and they're ready to serve. 

Bright and Boozy Sippers


  • 1 cup of vodka
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 2 tbsp raspberry syrup

Mix all the ingredients together in a pitcher. Pour mixture into bulb-shaped ornaments. A muffin tin works well for holding the ornaments upright while you pour.
Place the caps on the ornaments and hang them from your holiday tree.
