In the realm of cocktails, this festive refreshment sparkles like the lights around the Christmas tree. It's a drink that not only excites the taste buds but adds a touch of glamour to any holiday gathering — and we’re here to show you how to make it.


  • 1 oz. simple syrup (rosemary)
  • 2 oz. gin
  • ½ cup of fresh cranberries
  • 2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • Ice
  • Club soda/sparkling water


Crafting the snow globe cocktail is an artful process, perfect for those who aspire to be the star host at their next holiday soirée.

Begin with a clear, freezer-safe glass and pour water into the cup. Once it’s filled about a third of the way, add a twig of rosemary in the water and place it upside down to resemble an evergreen tree in the winter forest. To ensure the rosemary stays centered, loop a string around the tip of the rosemary and fasten the string's ends to opposite sides of the glass with tape. Next, add cranberries to the glass for an extra touch of holiday charm.

Once assembled, place in the freezer until the water solidifies. To achieve the winter wonderland effect, pour seltzer water or sparkling water into the frozen middle piece and allow the bubble to surface. Adjust for sweetness and alcoholic preference, and enjoy!

This snow globe cocktail is a celebration of creativity, transforming a simple drink into an interactive work of art. It invites your guests to revel in the joy of the season and savor the magic that unfolds in each captivating sip.

For your next holiday gathering, let the snow globe cocktail be the star of the show.

​Tour Interior Designer Annisa LiMara's Organic Modern Meets Midcentury Modern ATL Abode

In xoNecole's series Dope Abodes, we tour the living spaces of millennial women, where they dwell, how they live, and the things they choose to adorn and share their spaces with.

Annisa LiMara has called this space her home for two years. Her Atlanta sanctuary, which she aimed to give the look and feel of something you'd see in the glossy pages of Architectural Digest, embodies her vision of "stunning, yet functional and cozy."

"My home is a reflection of my brand, The Creative Peach Studios, and I am the 'Creative Peach,'" Annisa explains. "It was so easy to reflect who I am and my personal story in my space. When you walk into my home, you know that it is Annisa’s home. I’m so proud of that. So grateful."
