I have decided that if anyone reenacts the Twelve Days of Christmas for me, I’d rather they made me one of these cocktails over the menagerie of birds gifted in the original version.  Seriously…what would I do with a bunch of french hens, calling birds, geese, and swans wandering around my backyard—we are not even zoned for domestic wildlife!

Let’s just forget about all the poultry and concentrate on more delicious cocktails! Take this Christmas Swan cocktail for example, which pays homage a semi-famous drink called the Black Swan, made with vodka, lemonade, and raspberries.  This version consists of frozen lemon and raspberry sorbet “swans” swimming in a nice pool of St Germain and champagne.  Easy enough to whip up in two minutes, but elegant enough that you might want to wait for New Year’s Eve to feature this!

Christmas Swan Cocktail

  • 1 Scoop Raspberry Sorbet
  • 1 Scoop Lemon Sorbet
  • 1 oz. Elderflower Liqueur (St Germain)
  • Dry Brut Champagne to fill

(Per glass)

Add a scoop of raspberry sorbet to a champagne flute, then add the scoop of lemon sorbet.  Pour the St Germain over, then fill the glass with champagne.  Serve immediately.
