Holiday parties are the best! And, just when you think you can't take anymore, New Year's Eve comes around. Here are a few ideas for your drinking pleasure. We will be living it up (and probably doing some kind of cleanse next week)!
There is nothing like a bourbon bar and a little Cranberry Sangria!
1 (48 ounce) bottle cranberry-raspberry juice, cocktail
1 (750 ml) bottle dry full-bodied spanish red wine
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier or 2 tablespoons orange juice
¼ cup sugar
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 cup fresh cranberries or 1 cup fresh raspberry
2 cups club soda, chilled
(We nixed the sugar for this. Also found a splash of this to be a delightful addition to a glass of champagne).
A festive bourbon cocktail is always one of our faves!
2 oz bourbon
1 oz Luxardo
Dash of angostura bittters
Garnish with pomegranate seeds or orange peel
Of course, add a pop of color to your table or bar! (Photo courtesy of Alex Gray)
Happy New Year! We look forward to all 2017 has in store!
