Holiday Cocktails!

Something merry, berry and bright.  Create the illusion of a tasty Elf’s kiss by muddling the flavors of cranberry and candied ginger.  The layered green and red hues also give this cocktail an extra festive flare.  Or opt for a creamier after dinner drink with the Holly-Daze cocktail, a rich combination of milk, citrus and melon.  Additional holiday recipe highlights include:

·         Seasonal Ingredients such as candied ginger and fresh cranberries
·         Festive Garnishes including colorful sprinkles and wrapped holly berries
·         Vibrant Hues of red & green or blue & white for garnish
