Cocktails and Movies “12 Days of Christmas Cocktails” #9: Ladies Dancing

by Tim Barley

On the 9th day of Christmas, nine ladies dancing came by…

Following our “12 Days of Christmas Cocktails,” which we’ve presented so far:

cocktails and movies 12 days of Christmas Cocktails - nine dancing ladieswe have only three more after this! We’ve arrived at our ninth cocktail! I found a great cocktail for this one that will either work well while you’re on that tropical Christmas vacation (or you currently live in Australia or south of the equator), OR you dream of being there. 

It features all liqueurs and juices, so  you KNOW it has to be healthy! (wink, wink). Anyway, it looks like a winner for today. So,  I give you the Nine Ladies Dancing:

The Dancing Lady


  • 1 oz banana liqueur
  • 1 oz melon liqueur
  • 1 splash cranberry juice
  • 1 splash lime juice
  • 1 splash pineapple juice


  • Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a sword and cherry on the rim.

This is a great idea for those who want to feel like they are living in the tropics or just wish they are as they watch the snow fall!

Enjoy this cocktail and remember: never watch bad movies unless you have a great cocktail. And don’t drink and drive.
