Martini glasses filled with ice keep these Christmas cocktails, served in glass ornaments no less, on the chill side.

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.
