Every Christmas morning I’d wake up to these socks filled with candies and lollipops!” – Vanessa Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz candy cane-infused Smirnoff vodka 1/2 oz Giffard pomegranate syrup 1/2 oz lemon juice 1 oz cranberry juice Egg white Glass used: cocktail glass Garnish: Lollipop, cotton candy, gummy tapes Directions: In a tin shaker combine all the ingredients. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain and pour over fresh ice. Garnish with lollipop, cotton candy and gummy tapes. Serve. Tasting notes: It smells like a candy store—sweet and inviting. It’s not as sweet as you’d imagine based on the ingredients because the lemon and cranberry juice balances it to make for a refreshing Christmas treat.
