It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and just a few days away until Christmas! To help celebrate, my friends at Fine Wine & Good Spirits put together some holiday cocktail recipes, which are the perfect creations if you’re entertaining this season. Yesterday, I shared some New Years Eve events happening around Philly, but if you’re going to stay in this year, check out some of the drinks below you can make at home!
Holiday Cocktail Ideas:
- ½ oz Russian Standard Vodka
