12 Days of Cocktails: Day 10 – Sorel Mimosa

If you’ve been a follower of this blog (Thank you! It’s much appreciated!), you’ve probably noticed by now that I am a fan of Sorel Liqueur, a spicy hibiscus and clove liqueur hand-crafted right here in Brooklyn. It was delightful in both the summery Hibiscus Lemonade as well as in the hot cocktail I created for the Atlantic Cellars’ Hometown Holiday Spirits event: The Red Hot American Winter. And it’s pretty much a no-brainer to include in a holiday cocktail because it’s so often described as ‘Christmas in a glass’.

And the candied ginger at the bottom of the glass is sweet treat at the end of the drink! The color will be a lovely burgundy dream. If you’re planning on doing a Christmas brunch, this is the drink to serve!
