Let’s Make ‘Home Alone’ cocktails together!

I apologize for not posting this earlier, BUT you still have plenty of time to prep and attend a festive holiday cocktail evening with me on Instagram Live tonight! Here’s the scoop:

Make “Home Alone” Cocktails with us!
Instagram Live @ 7:30pm CST
Join the Live via @CounterspaceBR

My good friend, who also owns a bakery in Baton Rouge, and I both LOVE “Home Alone” and we’ll be mixing up some themed cocktails fit for the holiday season. Please note, my Instagram is @Orangejulius7 but I’ll be joining on Sarah’s business page!

We will be making some of the “Home Alone” cocktails I came up with a few years ago, plus a few new ones I recently created.

If you want to, you can grab the ingredients and make them with us. Here’s what we’re making:

The South Bend Shovel Slayer. Look out! You’re going to need a stiff cocktail while you pack your suitcase (with toilet paper and water) for Paris and dodge the window to avoid the South Bend Shovel Slayer. Mix this up before he turns you into a mummy:

  • 1-ounce orange vodka (I like Three Olives or Stolichnaya)
  • 1.5 ounces of cranberry juice
  • Serve over ice
  • Top with soda water
  • Garnish with an orange twist

The Wet Bandit. It wouldn’t be right if we left out the Wet Bandits, and this mocktail is perfect for those who keep leaving the faucets on everywhere they go. Add tequila if you wish!

  • 1/2 c Health-Ade Jalapeno Kiwi Cucumber Kombucha
  • Top with soda water
  • Squeeze of lime wedge
  • Agave nectar, to taste
  • Shake and serve over ice

The Tarantula. Should we feed Buzz’s Tarantula before heading to Paris? Nah, he just ate a whole load of mice guts, he should be good.

  • 1oz vodka of your choice
  • Top with lemon-lime soda
  • Splash of grenadine
  • Pomegrate seeds for garnish
  • Serve over ice

The Sticky Bandit. In “Home Alone 2,” the Wet Bandits rebrand themselves into the Sticky Bandits as they rob change from Salvation Army buckets. It’s creativity that should be rewarded with a festive martini!

  • 1oz marshmallow vodka*
  • 1oz chocolate liqueur
  • Splash of half and half or nut milk of your choice
  • Shake and serve in a martini glass

*If you can’t find marshmallow vodka, go for vanilla or peppermint!

Take a look here for more “Home Alone” themed drinks and food! I hope we see you all on Instagram Live TONIGHT!
