OK loves, it’s officially the month in which Christmas arrives. Many of us will be sharing lots of joy and laughter at holiday parties. If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories when I go out to eat with my hubby, you know I’m all about cocktails and so today I’m sharing a “craft” cocktail with you just in time to entertain this holiday season with family and friends. Craft cocktails are really special because, well, quite frankly they typically are made with love and by hand. I guess I never really understood what the craft cocktail movement was all about until after I made this recipe. The light bulb went off. I finally got to taste the difference between what a handcrafted cocktail taste like and one in which each and every ingredient is poured out of a bottle. A craft cocktails is where every element is handmade or tailored specifically to the drink. The process of making craft cocktails is certainly not the quickest route to making a drink for your guests. But think about specialty food shops, or artisan desserts/foods, products or whatever that is labeled “artisan”. The focus is on flavor, high quality ingredients and taking your time to bridge the flavors together harmoniously/smoothly. This my loves, if you give it a try, I promise will be one recipe you are sure to remember and your guest will surely enjoy. Helloooo you also get to enjoy the bragging rights 🙂 of serving a craft cocktail.
