Merry Mocktails


Merry Mocktails

Last Christmas, I had an idea to make some creative themed Christmas party drinks for all ages. The Snowman, The Candy Cane, The Gingerbread Man, The Grinch, The Rudolph, The Poinsettia, Santa’s Coal, and more…
The Candy Cane is my favorite with the peppermint rimmed glass and creamy peppermint drink. Try one for a new Christmas Eve tradition or make it a Mocktail drink bar for a gathering spot at your next party. Cheers!
