As an experienced hostess I can say with complete authority, having a signature cocktail makes any gathering easier. With the holidays rapidly encroaching (Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving dinner is even served is a new one but ok) I have come up with some delectable drinks and hors’douerves to make the season brighter for everyone involved. The first in my repertoire – the Winter Blues Cocktail. Easy, but delicious, makes the season merry and bright.
1 part Nolet’s Gin
2 parts Santa Cruz Organic Blueberry Lemonade
Make sure the lemonade is chilled that way you can avoid needing to use ice and cocktail shaker. You can mix up a pitcher of Winter Blues before the guests arrive and simply pour when someone is parched. That frees you up to worry about other matters like the food or socializing with your guests. A host enjoying themselves at their own party should be the number one priority.
