It’s Christmas Eve….

And I need a cocktail!


How about u?

I was looking forward to serving these two fun and colourful drinks to the family, tonight and tomorrow.

Unfortunately that’s not gonna happen.

It’s another Covid year and this time the darn dreaded virus has found its way into our home (well it’s not officially confirmed, we are still waiting for results, however my daughter’s rapid test and her symptoms all point to positive, so we are not taking any chances).

But let’s not dwell on that.

After all, we are together and we are ok, that’s what matters most to me.

And, a little cocktail to sip on while listening to some Christmas tunes is just what we all need.

I found both these ideas online last year and saved them. And this year very similar ones have been popping up on TikTok.

Not surprising! LOL

Of course I changed them up just a tad to make them my own, and I must tell you that they are not only very festive looking but also quite delicious.

Definitely worth sharing with you.

They are on the small side as far as serving size, which makes them a great option for a pre lunch or pre dinner drink.

I hope you have the ingredients on hand so you can go make yourself one, or both of these right away.
