Holidays on Ice

Marissa Hermanson

Here’s a holiday beverage to try: Ireland’s cream liqueur, Coole Swan, uses all-natural ingredients and is
now being sold in four U.S. markets – Boulder being one of them. Coole Swan is
made from double cream and single malt Irish whiskey. Coole Swan can be served
alone in a chilled glass, or if you’re feeling adventurous this holiday season,
shake up this holiday cocktail—the Candy Cane.

The Candy Cane

2 oz. Coole Swan
1 1/2 oz. cranberry-infused vodka
1/2 oz. pomegranate syrup
2 shakes cinnamon

Combine all of the ingredients together in a shaker with plenty of ice. Shake
well. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and
flamed cinnamon or cinnamon stick. To flame cinnamon: pinch and sprinkle ground
cinnamon onto the top of the cocktail over an open flame to release the aroma.

A 750ml bottle is around $27.
