‘Dress Up’ Your Holiday Drinks with Snowy River Cocktails

Mixed drinks are as much a treat for the eye as they are for the palate, and Snowy River Cocktail’s line of cocktail “glitter,” salts, sugars, and specialty flavors will inspire any cocktail enthusiast wanting to up their garnish game.

Glam-up a drink with food-safe glitter that turns a drink into a pearlescent nebula, or coat a glass’ rim with one of 30-plus sugars that combine coordinated colors or candy sprinkles.

Snowy River’s coffee/mint Emerald City Grind recipe pairs nicely with its holiday sugars, with flavors including Chocolate Diamond, Candy Cane, and Holly Green. Add a little more of the flavored liqueurs to make the drink more coffee or chocolate mint-flavored. Visit their cocktail ideas page for more new and seasonal recipes using their different products.
