A Jewel of a Wintery Cocktail
TEQUILA MIGHT BE YOUR NEW FAV GO-TO HOLIDAY SPIRIT
"Generally speaking, when it comes to winter beverages, I always lean toward spirit forward, stirred drinks that pack a bit of a punch. It's very hard to find a seasonally appropriate cocktail that isn't whiskey or brandy. Don't get wrong, I love both, but sometimes I want to mix it up. This is the perfect cocktail to mix it up with. It's seasonally appropriate but uses tequila."
I hope you enjoy it!
