‘Tis the season to get very drunk…
The holiday season can be a magical time. You get to spend time with family and friends, spread good will, and appreciate the little things.
It’s also a time for getting buzzed – partly because you have to spend time with your family, and also because, if we’re being honest, Christmas is actually pretty terrible.
So if you require a beverage that will get you lit, but aren’t a total grinch and want to maintain a little bit of holiday spirit, these cocktail recipes have got you covered…
