Cruising Into A Merry Christmas

From us here at Cruise Diva headquarters to all our valued readers, we wish you a joyous and very Merry Christmas.

And, from our friends at Celebrity Cruises, we'd like to share a holiday treat. Take a break from shoveling that white stuff outdoors, and enjoy a Snowflake Martini.

If you didn't get any special Martini glasses from Santa, you can order the Etched Martini Glass pictured above from Swank Martini Company in time for your New Year's celebration.

1.0 oz cranberry juice

To serve: Rim a chilled martini glass with fine coconut flakes. Pour mixture into glass. (And think about snowflakes in a whole new way.)

To make the day a bit more festive, enjoy your Snowflake Martini while virtually touring Holland America Line's Eurodam, all decked out in her holiday finery.
