GRINCH COCKTAIL

Looking for an amazing Grinch Drink? This delicious fruity alcoholic Christmas cocktail is light and refreshing. This drink will put a smile on your face and grown your heart 10 times. This Christmas cocktail is one everyone will love at the holiday party.

CAN IT BE MADE AHEAD

You can make this Grinch Cocktail Recipe a few hours before you need it. It is one of my favorite holiday drink recipes because of how easy it is to make. I wouldn’t make it more than that because the Sprite or Ginger Ale in this Grinch cocktail recipe will start to lose its fizz.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS COCKTAIL

  • White Rum- you can substitute the rum with tequila to make it low carb and less sweeter
  • Vodka- any plain kind is good
  • Peppermint extract- if you don’t like the taste, you can forgo the extract.
  • No Sugar Sprite- You can also use no sugar ginger ale or seltzer water
  • Green Food Coloring- If you don’t like to use food coloring , you can replace it with sugar free Hawaiian Punch Green Berry Rush
  • Simple Syrup- This can be agave, liquid Allulose or standard one I make ( 2 tablespoons of monkfruit sweetener or other sweetener and 1 tablespoon of hot water than cooled off). If you want to omit this part use lime juice for the cup rim
  • Alternative Sugar Sprinkles for crushed candy cane for the rim (if you like to color your sugar sprinkle just add 2 drops of food coloring to it)
  • Cocktail Shaker or Blender
  • Ice
