Christmas Morning Special


Christmas Morning Special


Merry a few days after Christmas! We’re still in the throes of a whirlwind holiday extravaganza but I wanted to pop in and share a time-honored Waldron family tradition, the Christmas Morning Special.


Each year my Poppie makes this concoction, something he describes as a Southern Comfort Old Fashioned. It’s SoCo, orange juice, cherries, and oranges. Sweet, smooth, delicious, and festive. Perfect for a holiday morning!


Christmas Morning Special

1 jigger Southern Comfort

As many cherries as your heart desires

An orange slice

Orange juice

Muddle together orange, cherry, ice, and SoCo. Pour in orange juice, as little or as much as you like. Enjoy!

The finished drink was lovely- fresh and fruity with touches of citrus and elderflower. The benefit of the cobbler is that it’s not too heavy or too boozy, making it a good option for brunch or holiday parties where you want to celebrate without getting too crazy. We’ll be absolutely reprising this during the holidays. It may even be the new Christmas Morning Special. […]
