Another cocktail recipe? Well, it is the season to be jolly.

Here’s something fancy that you can make and bring to a party. And you’ve still got time to make it!

First, you infuse a bottle of silver tequila. (Corzo Tequila, which created this recipe, has the benefit of a decanter-like bottle as well.) Then, you use the infused tequila to make a cocktail—or simply enjoy it straight.

CHRISTMAS TEQUILA COCKTAIL

Ingredients

  • 1 part infused tequila (recipe below)
  • 1 part apple juice
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 4-6 apples for infusion plus apple slices for garnish (you can use all green apples, all red, or a combination)
  • 6-10 cinnamon sticks for infusion
Preparation
1. Infuse tequila a day in advance. Empty 1/3 of the tequila into a second container (a large glass jar will do). Infuse both the the tequila bottle and the second jar at the same time.
2. Slice apples to fit through mouth of bottle. Add cinnamon sticks. Infuse until ready to create cocktails.
3. Shake ingredients—infused tequila, apple juice and simple syrup—with ice and strain into a martini glass.
4. When the Tequila bottle is drained, refill from the second container.
