HOLIDAY COCKTAIL

happy holidays! today, we’re sharing a recipe for these festive cocktails. i love the deep red color with the accent of floating cranberries. and, as an added bonus you can freeze the cranberries ahead of time to help keep the cocktails cool!

we made a slight adaptation on this recipe. we created the mint infused syrup but we also added floating fresh mint leaves and frozen cranberries before serving. they were delicious and the hint of lemon in the cocktail keeps it tasting light and refreshing.

what are some of your favorite holiday cocktails? i’ve been wanting to make homemade egg nog, i’m not a fan of the store bought kind but i’ve heard that the homemade version is completely different. do you have any recipes to share?

    I really loved making mimosas with cranberry juice this holiday season, and garnishing them with fresh cranberries and thyme. They were a hit!
