A couple of holidays down and one big blow out to go! Though champagne might be the traditional beverage of celebration, we are huge fans of mixing things up (literally) and toasting to the New Year with some fabulous cocktails.
There’s just something about the deep flavors of Cherry Heering and Coffee Heering that keep us feeling warm and merry, along with the bright taste of Xante (Swedish pear liquor) that keeps the magic alive — reminding us that we don’t need to stop celebrating just because it’s January 2nd.
Maybe it’s time to tack on “savoring time with friends over delicious, homemade cocktails” onto our 2015 resolutions.
