Recipes Tasty Treats To Sip On

Campfire Cocktail

Campfire Christmas cocktailOn Saturday we procured (and decorated) our Christmas tree, our halls have been decked to the nines, and there are most definitely visions of sugarplums dancing around my head. If you haven’t noticed, I’m feeling festive as all get out as of late, and should probably give you all a fair warning before we continue. And if you’re with me on the Christmas obsession, I allow me to introduce you to your new favourite holiday treat. A totally tasty, beyond indulgent, ridiculously easy, campfire cocktail. It’s Christmas in a glass, it’s what we sipped on while decorating our tree, and will undoubtedly be my beverage of choice while watching the Family Stone on repeat in the coming weeks.

    I sent this to my daughter, who has her first apt. with her boyfriend this Christmas. And this reminded me to put a cocktail shaker on her list of gifts from us. Thanks
