One of the best things about the holiday season is the amazing food and drink we all get to enjoy! Whether throwing a dinner party, attending one, or checking out the seasonal menu at the hot restaurant in town, we can all agree that amazing food and delicious cocktails can make an evening unforgettable. Our special touches here at our bed and breakfast truly make a getaway here unforgettable for our guests as well! Today we wanted to share with you a couple of our favorite cocktail recipes for you to try at home. Or, if these sound good, be sure to make a special request during your next stay with us!
We are so fortunate to partner with the Ozark Distillery, which happens to literally be 3 minutes down the road from us. If you pay them a visit, be sure to mention our Moonshine Mimosa that we serve and we can guarantee they will know where you are staying! You’ll find the owner, Dave, friendly as can be and always willing to share about their business and fantastic products. They offer daily tastings and fun tours on Saturdays. Our guests love checking out this fantastic local distillery. We are proud to serve Ozark Distillery products at our breakfast table. Our Moonshine Mimosas (orange juice with a splash of butterscotch moonshine), Blushing Bride (cranberry juice with a topper of blackberry moonshine) and Bad Apple (apple juice and apple pie moonshine) are guest favorites. Wouldn’t you like a seat at our breakfast table? We’d love to have you!
We have treated many of our wonderful groups, such as our Bridge Ladies and “Happy Booker” Book Club to amazing desserts and special cocktails and thought we’d share a couple holiday creations with you. Why should our Christmas trees be the only things that ‘get lit?’ HoHoHo! Drinking Jack Frosties could make our very own innkeeper Ron break into song and entertain you with his rendition of Elvis’s Blue Christmas – they are that good!
I personally use www.delish.com as my source for inspiration and these two holiday cocktail recipes can be found on their website, so thanks Delish for the ideas!
