Sweet Bitch And Other Holiday Drinks

Sweet Bitch Red Wine is a little sweet for my preference for red wine, but it’s good, it’s cheap, and it can more than likely be found at a liquor store near you.

You know that I wanna be your sweet Bitch.

Something for the kiddies, why not whip up a Mint Hot Chocolate? Baker Terese Lorae of A Lot of Yummy Things says

“Just add a drop of peppermint extract to a cup of hot chocolate. It’s pretty strong so you only need a drop. Add more if you like it strong.”

I had to save the best for last. A few weeks ago I went to a pop-up shop called Repurpose Vintage to cover the event and get a few interviews. They were serving a sweet spiced spiked cider that I just had to try. I spent my last few dollars on a cup and let me tell you, you’re going to want to try this at home. I got the recipe from Melissa of Apt. No. 7, a store that sells vintage goods.

Spiced Spike Cider (I named it…)

2 parts apple cider (I chose Martinelli’s Sparking Apple Cider because I think it will give it a nice “pop.”)

1 part lemonade (I didn’t feel like lugging a half-gallon of lemonade from the store, and the powdered verson seemed icky so I will make mine from scratch using lemon juice, sugar, and water.)

1 part orange juice

1 (or 2!) parts Hennessey

a dash of cinnamon, allspice, and cloves

Mix together. It tastes better when it’s not too cold.

Also, I added a bonus video of the interview I did with the The Brooklyn Good Guys and Apt. No. 7 who really were key in making Repurpose Vintage happen.

So enjoy, and check out www.youtube.com/helesetalks for all types of videos on entertainment, fashion, and more in NYC and beyond. Happy Drinking!
