A very Merry Christmas calls for just the right cocktail! My White Cosmopolitan is inspired by New York City’s Aquavit, whose menu features this signature cocktail with their house-made namesake spirit, which they make with white cranberry and caraway. Though I opted to simply purchase my own aquavit, I love the herbaceous and spiced flavor it lends to this mixed drink. Taking a nod from The Nightmare Before Christmas, I popped a piece of dry ice in my freshly shaken cocktail to mimic the Fog Juice fountain Sally creates in her attempt to sabotage Halloweentown’s Christmas endeavors, through which Zero lights Jack’s way!
2 parts aquavit
1 part triple sec
1 part white cranberry juice
Fill shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients, shake, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cranberries.
