It’s not New Year’s Eve just yet, but this weekend is the last weekend of 2013! 2013 has been an excellent year full of many wonderful weekends, so as I ready myself for the New Year ahead, I will make one last toast to the weekends of 2013.

Holiday party season is in full swing! Tonight I will be hosting a party of my own, and with the role of host comes a lot of responsibilities (prepping food, picking the music, deciding on party entertainment). That’s why I like to mix up large format cocktails ahead of time in order to take the role of bartender off my plate. Since Sangria is not just for summer, I will be mixing up a Winter Spice Sangria!
- 1 Bottle Of Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto
- 4oz Hiram Walker Original Cinn Schnapps
- 3 Clementines, Quartered
- 6oz Cranberries
- 18oz Sparkling Clemetine Juice Or Soda
- 6oz Cranberry Juice
- 4 Cinnamon Sticks
- Ground Allspice To Taste
Directions: Combine Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto, cinnamon schnapps, clementine pieces, cranberries, cranberry juice and cinnamon sticks in a large pitcher. Cover tightly and place in the refirgerator for at least 8 hours. Right before serviing, add sparkling clementine juice/soda. Sprinkle allspice on top
Enjoy and Happy Holiday Partying 🙂
While there is still another week before the official start of winter, it sure feels a lot like the dead of winter up in New England. With the snow from our first storm still lingering, the
View I’ll be enjoying as I sip on my Black Raspberry Truffle
forecast calls for another storm tomorrow. I’m not complaining (too much) because I have come to expect snow in New England in December, and it does make the holiday season feel
extra festive! So tonight I’ll be bundled up with a nice hot cocktail to warm me up as I await the second snow storm of many this season.
