Drink of the Day: Santa’s Helper

December 1, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

I am asked to come up with a monthly cocktail special, at the bar I work at, that best fits that time of year.  With the holiday season in full gear, I couldn’t think of a better cocktail to add to this illustrious list.

Santa is getting ready for the yearly run and sometimes a little more than cookies and milk will do to settle him in after all his hard work.  I have created something that I am hoping gets him in the right frame of mind as he sits back in front of the fireplace after finishing what takes him a full year to get ready for.

What better than a cream-based, liquor filled, beverage to settle you in.  If you happen to be in Medina, Ohio, be sure to stop in to try one of these tasty treats at Twiisted Sushi Grill and Bar, where my bartenders and I are ready to serve you up this and many more cocktails you will not be able to find anywhere else.  So, come on in and share some of your spirit with us during a month filled with holiday parties and get-togethers.

Hope your day is relaxing and full of fun!  Cheers!
