3 Easy Holiday Cocktails with Recipes!

If you’re anything like me, you are a skilled procrastinator. When it comes to the holidays, it gets even worse. I have to keep things simple, while still allowing the creative part of me the freedom to add those unique touches.

Without fail, every year I forget about that holiday cocktail I wanted to make. Normally it was complicated and required 25 ingredients. #imoverwhelmedalready
