Serve the Cranberry Gin Fizz at your next holiday shindig and spread the smiles!Every year on Christmas Eve, I host my family for a little shindig. We keep it pretty simple: salad, baked ziti, cheesy garlic crostini, and a bounty of Christmas cookies that we’ve baked anyway. It’s more about spending some time together, now that we’re scattered under different roofs, and making sure we all see each other during the holiday season. The only thing I’m not so great about keeping simple is the bar cart.

Serve the Cranberry Gin Fizz at your next holiday shindig and spread the smiles!It’s not a holiday celebration without something a little fizzy!

Our first Christmas in the house where we now live, I went way overboard. I must have purchased at least 8 bottles of different boozes, just to be sure we had something for everybody. There was eggnog in the fridge. I had beer chilled, as well. Vodka, and whiskey, and moonshine–oh, my! There was so much left untouched and leftover!

Serve the Cranberry Gin Fizz at your next holiday shindig and spread the smiles!It really wasn’t necessary. Pick a signature drink or two and stick with it. Your guests will be absolutely fine with this, and you’ll save your sanity. And when you have something as beautiful as a Cranberry Gin Fizz in the glass, no one will be missing all that other obscure stuff they never would have asked for anyway. They’ll have the perfect sipper to keep them happy!

Serve the Cranberry Gin Fizz at your next holiday shindig and spread the smiles!Cheers! May you have a Holly, Jolly Christmas full of glasses of Cranberry Gin Fizz!
