Holiday Hump Day Cocktail: The Grinch

(In as deep of a voice I can manage.) You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch. You really, are a heel! You’re as cuddly as a cactus, you’re as charming as an eel, Mr. Grii-iiinch!

I L-O-V-E that song. I think it’s a combination of things – the extremely deep voice of the person singing it, the lyrics that make me laugh every single time I hear it, or The Grinch himself. It’s all so deliciously evil and inspired me to search for a Grinch-y Cocktail for this week. Well friends, I found one that I can’t WAIT to try.


2 ounces melon liqueur
2 ounces Triple Sec
6 ounces vodka
1 ounce sweet and sour mix
Crushed candy canes for the rim
Candy Cane for garnish

First, rim your glasses in the sweet and sour mix, then dip them into the crushed candy canes. Then pour all of the alcohol over ice, into a shaker and shake really, really well. Finally pour into 2 glasses and garnish with candy canes.

If you want to have some REAL fun, try this drinking game created by my friends Ron and Coleen. While watching The Grinch, take a drink every time the word “Who” is said. Just … think about that for a minute.
