Day 1 – 24 Spirits of the Season – Gumby


Two years ago, I posted a few blog posts that fell under the category of Holiday Drinks. A couple of my favorites and one from a friend. This year, I am expanding on that with the 24 Spirits of the Season. Each day from December 1st to December 24th, there will be a different drink. The first few days will be revisits to those three I posted in 2012. The remaining days will have me being all experimental and expanding those seasonal alcoholic cocktails. I might even through in some fun surprises.


Let’s start with the Gumby. If you want a history of how the Gumby came to be a holiday drink, check out the original post details.

Here’s what you need to make a Gumby:

  • 1 part Midori
  • 1 part sweet and sour
  • 2 parts vodka
  • Fill with Sprite or 7-Up

Take a rocks glass, fill with ice. Grab a shaker and add a couple of ice cubes, the Midori, sweet and sour and vodka and shake. Pour into the rocks glass with ice, fill the remainder with Sprite or 7-Up.

Add more vodka to make it less sweeter [and stronger]. Enjoy!
