Holiday Cocktails

We’re thrilled to announce that local Texas craft spirits are now available for delivery through Farmhouse! To celebrate, we’ve conjured up some wintry cocktail recipes that use seasonal flavors and ingredients, perfect for your next holiday party.

Blood Orange Rosemary Old Fashioned

Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass or large mason jar with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds, then strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice. Use a veggie peeler to peel an orange slice, and squeeze the peel over the glass to capture the oils, wipe the rim of the glass with the orange peel, then drop in. Add rosemary sprig and cherry for garnish. 

Vanilla Whiskey Sour
  • 2oz Austin 101 Whiskey
  • 1 egg white
  • ¾ oz Fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • ¾ oz vanilla simple syrup (see below)
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • Garnish: Freshly ground nutmeg or sprinkled cinnamon

Crack egg over a dry cocktail shaker,  separate the egg white into the shaker & discard the yolk (or save for a delicious aioli).  Shake the egg white on its own for about 20 seconds. Add ice to the shaker, along with remaining ingredients. Shake, and strain into a coupe glass. Grate fresh nutmeg, or sprinkle cinnamon over the glass to garnish.

Vanilla Simple Syrup: 

Heat 1 cup of water to boil. Remove from heat and add 2 cups Madagascar Vanilla Sugar, stir until completely dissolved. Add vanilla bean to the hot syrup, let cool then refrigerate.  Store in an airtight container or mason jar – will keep up to one month in the refrigerator.

Wet the rim of a rocks glass with a lime wedge. Dip the rim into a plate or bowl of salt and set aside. Pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into salted rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with Strawberry, lime and/or serrano slice

Combine gin, syrup and grapefruit juice in a collins glass and give a quick stir. Add ice and top with sparkling water. Garnish with rosemary sprig or grapefruit slice

  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce Caramel Simple Syrup (see below)
  • Top with Soco Apple Ginger Beer 
  • Garnish: Apple wedge, sprinkled with cinnamon
