It's that time of year again! It's a little bit colder, malls are relevant again, people are a little happier and Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" has been playing so much that you need a few cups of eggnog before you can enjoy it again. The holidays are a stressful time, that's nothing new, the countless parties and your uncle's thoughts on why you aren't married yet, is enough for anyone wanting all they want for Christmas is a stiff drink. While a Christmas ale is never a bad thing, be the hero of the party by making a Christmas themed cocktail with a terpene kick.
Make an Eggnog someone will enjoy for once by adding a few drops of OG Kush Terps! Spice up that mulled wine with Super Lemon Haze terpenes. A personal favorite drink of mine is the Moscow Mule. It's made with ginger beer, Vodka and Lime. Bonus points if you got a copper cup. You can make it hot if you warm up the ginger beer just a bit.
Terpene Moscow Mule:
1 1/2 oz vodka
4 oz ginger beer
1-2 drops Lime OG or
1-2 drops Trainwreck.
Add all ingredients in shaker. Make sure to only use 2 drops of Terpenes total! Shake and add to copper mug filled with Ice.
The Terpenes add a nice kick of Lime that the original recipe calls for as both strains have a delicious citrus profile. Try adding Terps to any of your Pot luck meals or drinks, the holidays are rough, but you don't have to be a scrooge about them! A few more of these and you and your uncle will be belting out "All I want for Christmas" all night!
