It's Cocktail Time

Christmas Punch

Christmas Punch

Is it 5'oclock? Well I know that post is coming to you a little before the traditional cocktail hour but at Christmas time, my motto is it's 5'clock somewhere if you know what I mean. My friend Tracy shared this recipe with me and I find it works for a party or even a brunch. It isn't too heavy which this time of year is a nice break. You can find the recipe here.

Do you want to make it non alcoholic? I would substitute the liquors and the sparkling wine for orange juice, apple cider and ginger ale. With either version top with cranberries and orange slices and you have  festive drinks for a crowd.  What's fabulous is that with either one you can make ahead and take one thing off your list.

Merry Christmas
