Festive Holiday Citrus Spritzer Recipe
Citrus Mint Spritzer Cocktail With Tulle Stirrer
The best part of this drink is the edible glitter rim. Sweet citrus and tasty mint make an unexpectedly delicious pair in this festive party cocktail.
1/4 orange, cut into segments
a few sprigs of mint
1 tablespoon white sugar
3 ounces citrus-flavored vodka
edible gold glitter (available at baking supply shops)
In a tall glass, muddle together the orange, mint and white sugar. Add ice cubes and 3 ounces citrus-flavored vodka. Transfer to a cocktail shaker. Shake, shake, shake. Rub the rim of a glass the glass with a orange wedge. Dip glass into a mixture of edible glitter and white sugar. Pour the cocktail and the ice back into the glass. Top off with sparkling water.
