Nothing signifies the joy and togetherness of the holidays quite like a thoughtful toast shared with family and friends. If you’re gearing up to host a few celebrations this December, it’s the perfect time to hone your bartending skills with a creative cocktail recipe. When crafting our holiday libations, we like to focus on something fun and fizzy that will create a festive feel for party season.
This year, we’re planning to serve a sparkling combination of bourbon and apple cider, garnished with homemade cinnamon simple syrup and sugared cranberries for bold flavor and an extra burst of color.
