With only two days left in November all hostess around the world are now in full Christmas dinner menu planning mode and for some (like me) the drinks menu is pretty high up there on the list of priorities. During the year I keep my cocktails pretty simple but come Christmas I like to dust off the cocktail mixing set and try on some new scrumptious recipes.
Here is a list of cocktail recipes I pulled together to help you plan for your holiday drinks menu.Cheers!
