When a friend gave us a bottle of Grey Goose Le Melon liquor, I was happy to receive it but, disappointed I couldn’t find a lot of melon related cocktail recipes online to choose from so, I started mixing to come up with one of my own. You can’t just have a nice bottle of Grey Goose sitting around unused.
I was pleasantly surprised to come up with this simple mixture to make a tasty and crisp red cranberry cocktail that is perfect for Christmas time. It’s so easy to make too which is always a plus!
Tiramisu Eggnog is also a great party drink and goes well with party appetizers and snacks. Oh, so many good things to eat during the holiday season!

This Cranberry Melon Vodka Tonic Cocktail is a nice drink to sip while wrapping Christmas gifts. In the past, I LOVED wrapping gifts!! Years ago, I would volunteer to wrap friends’ Christmas gifts but now, I don’t even like wrapping my own so much. I suppose wrapping gifts, along with Christmas shopping, has just lost its luster over the years. Does anyone else feel like that too? You won’t find me near a mall the week of Christmas.
This cocktail is also an easy one to prepare ahead of time and serve at a holiday party or leave out for Santa instead of milk and cookies. I think I’ll make this drink on Christmas Eve when I’m up late preparing for Christmas morning, my favorite day of the year! Are you done shopping, wrapping, choosing recipes, and organizing your Christmas meals? Nope, me neither.
