HOLIDAY DRINKS + DESSERTS

Posted on Dec 18, 2014 in RECIPES

featureI’m almost finished with my Christmas shopping, which is incredible for me. Kyle and I are never finished buying for everyone this early. I know, I know, you non-procrastinators out there are gasping. What can I say? We like to see all of our options first!

Anyway, along with beautifully wrapped gifts, ’tis the season for delicious cocktails and concoctions. Bring on the holiday-flavored things of all genres. Since it’s the last weekend before Christmas, naturally there are several events to attend, for which I need to bring something tasty. If you need some inspiration for what to bring to your own holiday gatherings, check out these ideas. All of you “already have everything planned” people, move along.
