Santa's Little Helper
I thought when I Googled the namesake of this drink, it would mostly refer to Santa's elves. Wrong. It looks like most of the results refer to the Simpson's family pet, an adopted Greyhound. Still not quite sure if the animated pooch is the inspiration behind this cocktail, but what is certain, is that the festive taste and spirit of this drink would definitely be a "little help" to anyone playing Santa. With the flavors of Apple, Cinnamon, and Butterscotch, we present our featured cocktail... Santa's Little Helper. Cheers!
5 oz. Apple Cider
Apple slice and/or Candy Cane to garnish
Combine the 3 spirits and the Apple Cider in an ice filled cocktail shaker. Cover, shake well, and pour into a Rocks glass. Garnish accordingly, and get ready for some serious holiday spirit with the delicious... Santa's Little Helper. Enjoy!
Btw, after drinking about half of this cocktail, I decided to see what it tasted like as a hot beverage. I strained the remainder into a coffee mug and heated it in the microwave. I'm happy to say that it is just as tasty hot, as it is cold.
