Obviously we love throwing parties of all kinds, but we especially love planning holiday parties! The holiday cards, the glitzy party dresses, fun wrapping paper, tasty pumpkin treats, hot apple cidar… Oh my, that list can go on and on! One of our favorite parts about holiday parties are the fun and yummy signature cocktails. There are many ways to get creative with holiday cocktails such as serving them in a cute mason jar you can find anywhere or in a Ginn Rummy Glass paired with a fun napkin such as the Cheers cocktail napkin set both from Anthropologie! Adding a candy coated rim can also give your signature cocktail a “wow” factor. Here are a few of our favorite holiday cocktails we just had to share! Enjoy :)
