Festive Spirits Mixology

Well it's getting to be that time of year again...the annual staff Christmas Party time!

This is one of my favourite traditions around the holiday season. Especially with the company that I work for. They really do know how to throw a good shing-dig.

Every year since I started with Tract, our bosses holds a staff Christmas party at their house. They have a beautiful home and it's a great venue to host a party for about 40-50 people. They get a caterer with a buffet of gourmet finger foods and appys. They provide rides for all staff to the party and back so everyone just lets loose and has a good time. They really out do themselves every year, and this year will be no exception.

They also have an open bar with a bartender, although in years past the bar mostly consisted of beer, wine and the regular high-ball drinks like rum and whiskey. That's where I come in.

This year I have asked if I can create a speciality drink all our own. So I have been doing some research about different drinks and I think I have come up with a few contenders for this years party. I wanted to make on for our company, Tract, and one for our sister company, Virdis. The Tract drink I wanted to a cocktail and the Virdis drink as a shooter.

Still a work in progress and thus far these are all still concepts, I have yet to try them. (Might be a good weekend project. haha) I think I am getting a bit tipsy just thinking about it.

The "Drink until they are atTRACTive" Drink
2 oz Absolute Pear Vodka
2 oz Ginger Ale
1 oz Lime Juice
Cranberry Garnish

The "Virdis Vertigo" Shot
1/2 oz Sour Puss Apple
1/2 oz Caramel (or Butterscotch) Schnapps

What do you think?
