I love pretty much every Holiday based on the food that it's associated with. Christmas? I love my Eggnog Sherry cake. Oh man oh man. You aren't living if you haven't had it. Well, okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration but whatever. Beyond the cake though, I have never been that big a fan of Eggnog; I just don't get it, it's milky and thick and gross. The problem then arises that I don't have a go-to Christmas drink. Looks like this year I may be starting a new tradition, thanks Cozy Walls.
This year I put together a more tart beverage with pink grapefruit and lime, more for tree-rocking and sushi eating than lazy lights gazing. Adjust the amounts based on your taste. Begin with pink grapefruit juice, add gin if you wish, then drop in sweet scoops of lime sherbet (I used my melon baller for the little glasses). Top off the drink with club soda or another fizzy liquid and watch the bright green bubbles grow to the top of your glass.
