When I entertain, my first thing to do is set a theme for the night. The second thing, is has a signature drink for everyone to celebrate. Being in Virginia we are surrounded by distilleries and wine country. The selections are endless with bourbons and wines. The best part is they have created endless selections of cocktail recipes to have a drinkable dessert, festive punch or a timely tipple. The recipes created are the perfect accompaniment to holiday party.
Holidays are made for keeping spirits bright – particularly if those spirits are made in Virginia — but please remember to celebrate responsibly. Most be over 21 to purchase and don’t drink and drive. That’s what Uber is for!
