Cranberry Cosmo

Nothing says winter like a cranberry cocktail. The sweet, tangy fruit paired with a classic cosmopolitan creates the perfect winter season cocktail.


  • 1 lime
  • 2 heaped tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine edible gold glitter
  • 2 cocktail stirrers or skewers
  • 12 to 14 fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons Cointreau or orange flavored liquor
  • 2 1/2 fluid ounces of vodka
  • 2 1/2 fluid ounces cranberry juice
  • 2 heaped teaspoons of cranberry sauce


Cut the lime in half and run it around the edge of a martini glass. Add sugar and the edible glitter to a plate and stir to mix well. Place one glass upside down into the mixture until the rim is covered. Set aside. Thread cranberries onto the cocktail skewers and wind thyme sprigs around the cranberries. Set aside. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the vodka, cranberry sauce, cranberry juice, Cointreau, and the juice from the remainder of the lime. Add a lid to the shaker and shake thoroughly. Strain into the sugar-rimmed cocktail glass and top the beverage with the cranberry and thyme skewers.

Mulled Wine

The perfect cold weather beverage for special occasions is mulled wine. With hints of apple, cloves, and cinnamon, your guests can enjoy the sangria of winter.


  • 1.5 liter bottle of red wine
  • 1 bottle of apple cider
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 star anise
  • slow cooker or large saucepan


Add all the ingredients to a slow cooker. On a low setting, cook for a minimum of one hour and a maximum of four hours. If you use a saucepan, add the ingredients, bring them to a boil, and let them simmer for an hour. Finally, serve over ice or hot and garnish with orange slices and cranberries.

Saintly Greyhound

A simple yet classy cocktail that can please many wedding guests is the saintly greyhound. This bourbon, grapefruit, elderflower, and Rosemary concoction has a beautiful flavor and color and would be a great addition to any winter wedding drink menu.


  • 1 oz gin
  • ½ oz elderflower liqueur
  • 3 1/2 ounces IZZE® Sparkling Grapefruit
  • Rosemary sprig for garnish


Fill a fancy glass with ice and add all the ingredients. Stir well and garnish with a Rosemary sprig.
