Get in the Spirits this Holiday

By Cierra Randolph

The holidays are here!  And if you want to get into the Spirit of things here are a few recipes that will be sure to mix things up at the party and help everyone get a few holly, jolly gin blossoms on your nose down to your toes.

Remember to drink responsibly, the holidays don’t do us any good if we aren’t here together!
