Sadly it has been a little while since my last cocktail recipe but not to worry, I’m back with a variety of concoctions to help you drink your way through the holiday season and the inevitably brutal winter that we’re bound to have since we’re currently enjoying 60 degree weather here in NYC … and it’s DECEMBER. The Merry Christmas Happy Holidaze is one of the quickest drinks to whip up when you’re in a bind and have unexpected guests drop by as so many of us do. It’s not too sweet, which is a huge win here so that you can enjoy a cocktail and a dessert! My recommendation here isn’t to follow an exact recipe or quantity but to give it a whirl and shake up and start pouring!
- Gin (I’ve recently started enjoying Portobello Road Gin but whatever you like will do!)
- Cranberry juice
- Splash of lemon juice
- Club soda (for a little bubble action!)
- Add either a lime wedge or a small sprig of mint!
PS – how killer is this flask bangle from Cynthia Rowley?! I mean talk about the perfect holiday accessory to help save you from those awkward conversations at your next party! You can see it in action over on Snapchat @Ashleynii or on twitter here!
