The Blitzen

Tis’ the season to be jolly, right? And nothing helps put the joy in jolly old Nick like a delicious and beautiful cocktail. Our latest cocktail creation aptly named The Blitzen fits the bill nicely, don’t you think? It’s got peppermint, which if you ask me is the perfect Merry Christmas flavor bar-none. And the Blue Curaçao adds tons of festive color, and it’s sun-drenched orange taste mingles nicely under the mistletoe. 

But the kicker here is the minty sweetness of The Blitzen, which will either cool things down or heat things up. So, at your next at-home holiday shindig pour a round (or two) of these and watch everyone’s eyes light up! Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas from the Wortheys!

Cheers!
