Yummy! My husband suggested a dash of nutmeg on the top and it really pulled it together (not to mention making the presentation a little nicer -- brown like a deer!) Read More

I love the idea of this drink and really wanted it to be a hit but sadly it wasn't. We're used to drinking martinis but we all agreed that this was very strong even for us. I feel like this drink is missing some sort of mixer that would cut the alcohol a little and add some color. In addition for the Rudolph thing to work you either have to use very small martini glasses without a lot of depth or very long cinnamon sticks - and I bought the only ones at my grocery store in standard length. Therefore they barely stick up from the glass and you lose the effect. Read More

Really good but a bit too strong (and I am a big martini drinker!). Just cut the vodka by half and the recipe is perfect. Read More

I thought it was good but my guests felt like this was very strong! The kids idea with chocolate milk was a hit. Make sure you use a very shallow glass so the antlers stand up. Read More

This was a great idea a little bit strong for us but so cute. I even put chocolate milk in martini glasses for the kids and garnished with the cherry and cinnamon sticks. Thanks for sharing this creative recipe Read More

Wow! Really strong! I made them with lesser volumes of the alcohol and added the nutmeg as suggested by another person on here. The nutmeg really does finish off the drink so I definitely recommend that. Read More

I loved the presentation so much but had to change the recipe to suit the crowd. Thanks for the heads up that the ingredients as written were too strong. I made it with equal amounts of vodka Frangelico and Baileys. It was great! Read More
