Holiday Happy Hour: Cranberry Cocktail!

I serve this Cranberry Cocktail at my Christmas Party every year! Pizzazzerie.comTime for a Holiday Happy Hour! I’m sharing my absolute favorite cranberry cocktail with ya’ll today¬†and I’ve teamed up with some of my darling creative blogging friends who have made delicious happy hour appetizers and more cocktails for you to enjoy! Time to sit back, grab a glass, and enjoy a little holiday happy hour inspiration. Whether you’re hosting girlfriends for the evening or just enjoying a quiet night with your husband after the kids have gone to bed, I hope you’re inspired to try this cocktail recipe (and the ones by my friends too)! Cheers!

The ultimate Christmas cocktail with a side of cranberry! :)

Back to this cocktail, right? It’s a blend of rum, bourbon, cranberry juice, and a splash of pineapple juice! Easy ingredients that you can keep on hand. I’ve also found that guys and girls alike love it which makes it an easy signature cocktail for your holiday parties. You can make it up individually or create a large serving size in a punch bowl. Obviously if you omit the rum and bourbon, you have a quick mocktail for the little ones. I love easy recipes that taste amazing!

You know I love garnishing, presentation is key in my hostess book. For this cocktail, I love skewering a sprig of fresh rosemary with a cranberry! Display them on a bar cart in a small bowl! Just pop one in each glass and ta-da! You can really serve this cocktail in any glass shape, I love this pretty little coupe (it was actual my grandmothers!). Anything from a highball to a whiskey glass would be just fine, no rules. Just cranberry cocktails, ya’ll.
