Once all your ingredients are ready, pour the vodka and half of the raspberry liqueur into your cocktail glass. Then top the mixture with some champagne or prosecco.

For the garnish, mix the sugar with some red food coloring and use it to all around the rim of your cocktail glass

Mistletoe Martini

As the name suggests, this is a special recipe for the holiday season. Are you tired of drinking regular wine, Irish liqueur, and eggnog?
