Midnight Hour Cocktail | New Year’s Eve

Another year come and gone – can you believe we start 2019 at midnight tonight? This year has been a good one for us. As always, there were a few ups and downs, but it was definitely a year of growth, new experiences and good times. To celebrate another great year and the start of one that will be even better, we wanted to create a cocktail that’s perfect for ringing in the new year – the Midnight Hour Cocktail.

The Midnight Hour cocktail is perfect for your countdown – it utilizes Hounds Black Vodka, which gives the drink its deep shade and adds a fun touch with edible glitter. It’s sweet, it’s tasty and it’s easy to make.

All you need is 5 ingredients, and a little sparkle, to put this celebratory cocktail together. We decided to serve this in a coupe glass, though you can definitely use a martini glass if preferred.
