I love making cocktails. Honestly, I really do. And I’ve realized that I’ve not hosted a single cocktail party in my life.
I’m not talking about hosting an event where there are cocktails. I’m talking about hosting an evening where the cocktails ARE the event.
I’m talking about sending out cocktail invitations, having the appropriate glasses for the appropriate drinks and having sweet and salty bites to accompany.
But for now I’m going to concentrate on Christmas. That means fixing this simple cranberry cocktail. Which I love because it isn’t too sweet.
Get the recipe for the cranberry cosmo, and a few other cranberry cocktails, here.
Addendum – I like to use Grand Marnier in lieu of the Orange liqueur
