This holiday cocktail recipe is refreshing for any gathering. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Tuesday night, whenever. Impress your guests or treat yourself. I think it will be a festive cocktail for us as we set up the Christmas tree this year.
I can’t wait to grow fresh mint in my garden next year. This cocktail recipe will also be amazing by the pool on a hot summer day. This cocktail might just be the LBD of the drink world – you can dress it up or down for any occasion. 😉 For another twist, maybe add a cranberry to the mint sprigs to make it look like mistletoe.
