My Go-To Holiday Cocktail
We are a few days into December, so now I can express my excitement for the Holidays without feeling like I was getting ahead of myself. We enjoyed our annual Christmas Tree Farm tradition, the tree is now up and decorated in the condo, and the Holiday shopping has now started for my loved ones, so naturally, I have been all about the festive right now.
The fiancé and I decided that each month, we take a night to make a fun cocktail and sit, sip and enjoy. It sounds like once a month isn’t very often, but because my schedule isn’t consistent and he works nights, this is the only realistic option.
We already started the tradition just the other night when we put up our Christmas tree. I still had my favourite, Smirnoff Sourced Grapefruit bottle, so I put together a yummy festive recipe with cranberries (and my favourite, ginger beer) which was inspired by Vanilla and Bean.
The recipe is below, so keep scrolling, but I would love to know what your favourite go-to Holiday cocktail is!
