His + Hers Holiday Cocktails

One of my favorite things about the holidays is being able to entertain with festive food and decor.  I was so excited when Pottery Barn asked me to share a holiday story and put a twist on a classic cocktail recipe.  I chose a Martini for her, and Manhattan for him.  I put a twist on the Martini by adding cranberries – I used 1 ounce of vodka, 1/2 ounce of triple sec, 1/2 ounce dry vermouth, and 2 ounces of cranberry juice.  For the Manhattan, I used 2 ounces of rye, 1/2 ounce of sweet vermouth, 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth, 2 dashes of orange bitters, and then added a little bit of cinnamon + a cinnamon stick to give it a spicy-holiday taste.  Pottery Barn just marked down a ton of items like these napkins and this decanter (a great gift for the guy in your life.)  This tray also just went on sale and is perfect for breakfast in bed!  Shop more of my favorite items from Pottery Barn below.
