WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Don’t think you can make tasty cocktails for your holiday party. Just believe in your elf. Er, self.

Here are the recipes:

“Under the mistletoe”

2oz vodka

1 1/2 pear nectar

1 1/2 oz chai tea

1 oz sour mix

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake vigorously.

Pimm’s Cup

Muddle fresh ginger, mint and cucumber.

1 to 2 oz sour mix

Shake over ice and strain into a 16 oz glass filled with ice while adding high quality ginger ale.

Cook says to garnish with an “outrageous amount of mint, strawberries, oranges and cucumber.”
