The second I (Charity) watched Nightmare Before Christmas, I fell in love with Jack’s pet, Zero. What is he? A dog? I’m not sure, but what ever he is, I love his sweet little ghost self, and when he saved Jack with his glowing nose, I couldn’t wait to make a cocktail in his honor.
“My, what a brilliant nose you have. The better to light my way! You’re the head of the team, Zero!” ~Jack Skellington
When I decided to create a cocktail inspired by Zero, I didn’t realize his nose was actually a glowing Jack-o-lantern, so I made his nose a cherry nose, but you’ll forgive me, right? This week’s Disney inspired cocktail we’ve called Zero’s Flight, a delicious Cherry Vanilla Martini. It’s super easy to make, and if it’s too strong for your taste, add water to tone it down. I hope your Christmas is filled with children throwing snowballs, instead of heads.
