Rockin' Around Holiday Cocktails

We are all responsible for one thing at our big family gatherings. Location, meals, desserts, table settings, and dishes are all divided up between 20+ people. When I am organized, I do the drinks!

It's loud, crowded, and like most families this year, we need to re-invent our traditions. Suddenly, there are emails with recipes, plans for matching pajamas, and maybe some small visits in shifts for locals.

I am not too torn up about it; holidays have a way of being as magical as you're willing to make them. This year I am still sharing festive cocktails and sending the recipe ahead of time. We will Facetime with our drinks and "tour" each other's homes, all decorated and cheerful.

Since I have to be more prepared, I'm letting you in on my recipes, and in a proper fashion, I cannot decide what to serve. The Cranberry Thyme Handcrafted Mixer is the star of these drinks because it's the most versatile and festive of all the mixes this year! This way, you can pick what's best for you and your "guests."

Add some cheer to how you gather this year.
