The Christmas Cocktail

I’m thrilled to share another recipe from my incredible food contributor, Sarah of The Homemade Haus. If you don’t already follow her, you’re going to rectify that immediately.

Pomegranate + Gin Cocktail-6

I’m all about holiday baking, but if I’m honest what I really love are holiday cocktails. Bring on the cookies and cakes and pies…as long as you don’t forget to pour a little something special in my glass. 

 
This Pomegranate + Gin Cocktail brings all the Christmas and New Years’ vibes – deep red color, bright gin, and sweet pomegranate flavor with a touch of orange from the Cointreau. It’s the holiday season in a glass, and it doesn’t get much better than that. Cheers!
