- 5 cups Orange Juice
- 1 cup Vodka (you know I like Stoli)
- 1/3 cup Orange Liqueur (I like Grand Marnier but Triple Sec will do too)
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup maraschino cherry juice
Garnishes: Fruit flavored candy canes, maraschino cherries, lemon and orange slices
Stir together orange juice and next four ingredients. Serve over ice and garnish! Makes 1 1/2 quarts.
If you need to make a non-alcoholic version, (I shudder to think) omit the vodka and orange liqueur and add 2 cups of Sprite for a Rudolph Spritzer

- 2 Key Limes
- 4 ounces pineapple juice
- 2 ounces on vanilla vodka (I love Stoli!)
- sugar for rim
Cut a wedge from one of the key limes and run it around the rim of the glass. Sugar the rim of the glass. Place the lime wedge back on the rim of the glass for decoration. Squeeze remaining Key limes and shake with the pineapple juice and vanilla vodka. Strain into your sugared glass.
Even though martinis are not famous for their fruit, this is the time I add any fruit that I have in the fridge for decoration! Pineapple rings, maraschino cherries, etc... Just try not to take away from those little precious Key limes!!!

- 2 1/2 ounce of Kahlua
- 1/2 ounce of Bailey's Irish Cream
Pour the Kahlua into a shot glass, and carefully add the Bailey's using the wall of the shot glass. The Bailey's gives a "Baby Guinness" its nice Guinness style "head."
