4. Sparkling Apple & Whiskey Cocktail

One of my family’s most important traditions, holidays or otherwise, is the 5pm cocktail hour. Everything stops for a pre-dinner drink and a chance to catch up.

6. Pomegranate Thyme Fizz

The holiday season is all about spreading cheer, and we love a festive cocktail that does just that. The Pomegranate Thyme Fizz is subtly sweet, with a bit of tartness (thanks to the fresh pomegranate juice). The thyme gives it a refreshing—not to mention, festive—quality, while the sparkling water adds a little fizz!

7. The Greyhound

The Greyhound drink is a cocktail that’s been around since at least the 1930’s. It’s typically just a simple grapefruit juice and vodka combination. It’s citrus season, and I am loving the grapefruit, especially the beautiful tart-sweet pink ones. When I had the idea for this cocktail, I had no idea that it had a name. A greyhound drink?  I’m not very well versed in cocktails. I only knew that I wanted grapefruit juice to be in one.
