Holiday Cocktails

What are the holidays without special cocktails we indulge in because the season presents us with the opportunity? Why throw the same old same old down the hatch when you could create something unique that your family and friends will remember (if they don’t black out before it’s all over, that is)? Thanks to the good folks at Marie Claire magazine we have some fun and different cocktails that (with the magic of tequila) will make all your guests fall undeniably in love with you. Okay, that last part is just not true. But they will complement your delicate ego and we always want to promote that.
