Parties – Festive Cocktails

Since I’m SO pumped for the holidays this year – I can’t help but get excited for all the fun leading up… the decorating, the tree hunting, our Christmas party, baking cookies, just all of the things!  One way to customize your holiday party is to have a signature drink, these drinks have me totally inspired for our upcoming holiday party.
Festive Holiday Drinks - the bee life
Pomegranate Rosemary Spritzer: This drink just looks light and refreshing especially with the garnish of rosemary to top it off.  I think substituting out the pomegranate for cranberries would also be a great option if you wanted to make it a little more affordable and easier to create. This would also be a great drink for a NYE party!

Pink Peppermint Russian: Although I would need to substitute the milk, perhaps with almond milk, this drink looks so pretty and delicious and has Christmas written all over it. Not to mention, it’s a warmer drink which is perfect for warming up your guests from the cold and snowy nights.

Crockpot Cranberry Apple Cider:  This is perfect for a party to start up, and let it simmer and cook in the crockpot while you fine too the decorations and prep the food!  Easily add in some whiskey or rum and you have an instant cocktail to keep you warm and keep the festivities going!

My other go-to holiday party drink is getting the party start with Little Beers, or red and green Jell-o shots!

Cheers!

 

July 4th Sangria – The Recipe

Happy 4th of July my friends!!

I’ve got a fun, easy drink for all of you whether you’re leisurely enjoying the day by the pool, just hanging out with friends or headed to a cookout and want to bring something fun! July 4th Sangria - the bee life
Get a big pitcher, and throw your cut strawberries in and then the blueberries over top. From there add the half cup of lemon juice (bottled or fresh squeezed), next pour your triple sec over top.  Then add the white wine, I opted for a pinot grigio, top off with some club soda and watch the magic happen!  Garnish with some strawberries and enjoy this light summery drink with some good friends!

Cheers, to America and some good sangria!
