Did someone say DRUNK RUDOLF?

allofthelightsOne of my favorite things about the holiday season are the endless holiday inspired activities, food, and drinks!


I have always enjoyed experimenting with different recipes and creating something that showed some of my personality and of course something that others would enjoy!

This drink was made during one December when I was playing bartender at a family friend’s winter gathering. Someone had asked for a Cosmopolitan but I wanted to give it a little twist so that it was new, fun and festive!

Hope you like it 🙂

I call it the: DRUNK RUDOLF


First you want to make sure you have a cobbler shaker and a muddler on hand. Also you want to pre-freeze a handful of blueberries and cranberries. (By the way frozen blueberries and cranberries are a delightful and healthy snack on their own, that I highly recommend at anytime during the day)


  • 1  oz Vodka of your choice(I like to use Kettle One)
  • .5 oz of Ginger Ale
  • .5 oz of Cranberry juice
  • a small handful of frozen berries(or Rudolf noses)
  • Rosemary for garnish
  • Ice



Place a few frozen berries into the cobbler shaker. Gently muddle. Now add a couple of ice cubes, the vodka, ginger ale and cranberry juice. Place the strainer and cap on the shaker, then give it a nice shake. Pour over a nice glass with ice and extra frozen berries, and enjoy!
