In my world of casual beers at the brewery and sipping hearty red wine cuddled up on the sofa, I love an excuse to have a fancy cocktail. And what better excuse than ringing in the new year?
Fun fact: I worked as a bartender for a few years in my early twenties. So, I’ve concocted 5 different holiday-flavored cocktails for you. Whether you’re throwing a small soiree and want to impress your guests with some easy yet stunning libations, or if you’re taking it easy at home but still want to level up your drink of choice for the occasion, these cocktails will do the trick.
Each made with a different liquor, there’s something for everyone. You will notice they are all either a cranberry & lime or a holiday spice flavor. I wanted to create a number of drinks with similar flavor profiles in order to simplify the ingredients and shopping list. Fancy cocktails don’t have to be intimidating!
