Quarantine themed drinks, too soon? We don’t think so! It’s been a tough year and its time to look at smile at everything we have made it through. We previously did a special on your favorite holiday drinks and what has the most alcohol. Just in case you wanted a refresh, we have posted it below. Now lets go over so fun drinks we all need after this past year.
The best quarantine themed drinks for right now
Here is a short list of some alcoholic beverages we have seen being served. Not only are they tasty but there are a great way to increase revenue at your establishment.
-The Tiger King. We touched on this briefly in our last blog. This drink is a frozen mixture or whiskey and orange juice. The color gives it the early quarantine memories of everyone’s favorite Netflix show.
-The Qurantini. This is just your classic martini but dressed up to make it look a little cooler. One of our favorites is actually made with kombucha. Who doesnt want to be a little healthy while consuming alcohol.
-The corona virus. Not to get confused with the real one, this drink will make you feel better not worse. Unless your planning on having too many of them. This drink contains rum, soda and Midori to give it a nice green color.
If you feel like getting really fancy with your cocktails..

Vitamin Sea Martini
The crew on board 48 metre Never Enough created a cocktail packed with vitamin C. All you need is one fresh orange, Cointreau, St Germain elderflower liqueur and a shot of Grey Goose. Garnish with three vitamin C gummies.
Ingredients: 1 fresh orange, 3 vitamin C gummies, 1.5 oz Grey Goose vodka, 1 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur, 0.5 oz Cointreau
Method:First, wash hands for 20 seconds and apply gloves to towel-dried hands.Use Lysol wipes or spray to disinfect your work area properly. Cut fresh orange in half and squeeze one half into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Next, pour vodka, St. Germain, and Cointreau into shaker also. Place lid and shake vigorously for 30 seconds or until drink is cold. Strain the liquid from the shaker into a martini glass.
Cut a slice from the remaining half of orange, and then cut in half again to make a small triangle. Layer this with two vitamin C gummies onto a martini pick. Eat remaining vitamin C gummy, serve, and enjoy!

In case you were still curious about those Christmas drinks
We love a good cocktail during Christmas time! Who doesn’t? But what are the most popular and just how much alcohol do they have in them?? We did some research to see what the holiday favorites are and which ones have the most alcohol. According to foodandwine.com the following are some of the 10 most popular holiday drinks:
Hot Toddy: hot tea, a little lemon, and honey along with your choice of brandy, rum, or whiskey
Mulled Wine: A bottle of red wine, a hint of brandy, and some holiday spices
Irish Coffee: coffee, cream, rum or brandy
Eggnog: egg, cream, bourbon, spices
Wassail: brandy or rum with aromatic spices
Hot Buttered Rum: spice, and butter smooth with a rum base
Tom and Jerry: brandy or rum with warm milk and spice
Glogg: spiced rum or brandy with red wine, a touch of vodka, and a whole host of seasonal spices
English Christmas Punch: dark rum and red wine along with tea and citrus
Poinsettia: orange liqueur, cranberry juice, and Champagne
SO WHICH OF THESE HOLIDAY FAVORITES COMES WITH THE MOST ALCOHOL??
Topping the list for most alcohol is these two mixed drinks; English Christmas Punch and the Glogg. Granted, the alcohol content varies based on your bartender but the ingredients for both of these include mixing alcohol with a different type of alcohol. While this makes for a delicious holiday drink it can also make for a dangerous night.
On the other hand, not all of these drinks are made to be as strong. The Poinsettia is champagne and cranberry juice, making this alcohol beverage on the lighter side. Along with the Irish Coffee, Eggnog and a Hot Toddy; the mixture of alcohol with a non alcoholic beverage makes these on the less alcoholic side. Even so, none of these should be treated like a non alcoholic drink. Remember tasty drinks can get you in trouble!!
