The Winter Cocktail You'll Love

The Winter Cocktail You'll Love

I'll be honest, with all the holiday parties + the whole festive time of year, I've been drinking, um . . . a lot *not complaining* but, sometimes it's hard to find a light + fresh holiday cocktail that doesn't slap on the sugar, cinnamon + some sort of dairy product. This is why I'm so thrilled to introduce you to this Brit + Co recipe

 light + fresh cranberry ginger gin deliciousness
