I’m a firm believer that the holidays don’t have to be the season of chaos and stress. While schedules are naturally busier and to-do lists are longer, it’s important to find time to enjoy the company of family and friends. After all, that’s what it’s all about! In an effort to embrace the idea of togetherness, I had a few girlfriends over for a Sunday afternoon of card making and cocktails. It was so wonderful to relax with great company, while being able to get a little crafty and sip on delicious drinks.
To get the party started, I mixed up some Cranberry Citrus Cocktails with Hangar 1 Vodka. Hangar 1 is a blend of Midwestern grains and fine grapes giving it a smooth, flavorful taste. Distilled in an old WWII aircraft hangar outside San Francisco, Hangar 1 is truly an authentic spirit.
- 2 oz. Hangar 1 Straight Vodka
- 4 oz. ginger ale
- 2 0z. cranberry juice
- 2 oz. orange juice
- 2 oz. pineapple juice
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice, and pour into glass. Garnish with sugared cranberries and rosemary.
The hand-crafted look of these plain kraft notecards made the perfect base for our Christmas cards. We customized with printable holiday greetings, and added decorative tape. So simple, yet so festive!
