An Afternoon of Christmas Cards and Cocktails

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.

The Cocktail

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.
