Ring in the new year with Kate Hudson’s espresso martini — arguably the drink of 2020 and her “go-to.” For those who prefer fruitier drinks, Hudson’s take on a Moscow mule is just peachy, and her Pomegranate Sour is perfectly tart and sweet.
“It’s my go-to for cocktails with a friend or even when relaxing at home,” says Hudson
Combine 6 tablespoons vodka, 1/4 cup brewed espresso, 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur and a pinch of salt in a cocktail shaker filled with ice; cover with lid, and shake until well-mixed and frothy, about 30 seconds. Strain into 2 martini glasses. Garnish with espresso beans.
“The sweet peach flavor combined with the refreshing lemon and ginger is always a winner,” she says.
Stir 1 cup bottled peach nectar, 2 cups nonalcoholic ginger beer, 3/4 cup vodka and 1/4 cup lemon juice in a pitcher. Pour into 4 copper mule mugs or large tumblers filled with ice. Garnish with peach slices and crystallized ginger.
“This is the best addition to a holiday table, with the deep red color and warm flavor.”
Combine 1/2 cup pomegranate juice, 1/4 cup vodka, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 tablespoons pineapple juice, 2 tablespoons simple syrup and 1 tablespoon orange liqueur in a cocktail shaker filled with ice; cover with lid, and shake, about 15 seconds. Strain into 2 ice-filled tumblers. Garnish with pomegranate arils and orange slices.
Quick tip! Chill your glasses to help cocktails stay ice-cold longer. Before starting to mix your drinks, place the glasses in the freezer —and only take them out when you’re ready to fill and serve.
