As we roll into these last few days before Christmas, you may be realizing how very soon you will be spending time trapped by the love of your family. This may drive you to wonder what to do to combat the inevitable feeling of cabin fever that will descend upon you the moment your smiling relatives arrive at your door. Well, fear not, dear friends. D, PB, and I took it upon ourselves to create some Christmas beverages and recommend a few to ease your pain.
Mistletoe Margarita – This was by far our favorite drink, and indeed, it was the only one we could remember by name. Super good. We highly recommend it. Seriously, all three of us recommend it. We actually garnished it; that’s how good it is. Recipe courtesy of How Sweet Eats.
Rim each glass with a lime wedge and dip in the coarse salt. Fill each glass with ice.
In a cocktail shaker, add the Grand Marnier, tequila, cranberry juice, lime juice, and syrup and shake for 30 to 60 seconds. Pour over the ice.
We have been friends for more years than we haven't. Perhaps because of that or simply because we both have jobs/family that seem to encourage escape, we often bond over an ounce or so of liquid magic. Through these experiences, we have discovered the joys that can come with a well-crafted cocktail, quality beer, and excellent wine. It's about quality for us, and we want to share that with you.
