Getting through the holidays, one sip at a time.

Remember, a great hostess always greats her guests with a great drink at the door, and if your holiday season has been anything like mine this year, you’re going to need a stiff drink to make your way through the next few days. Unless your one of those people that gets violent, a good mixed drink will help you to relax, unwind and not look like you want to kill someone. It will help with conversation and laughter will come with more ease – heck, it may not even be fake at if you help yourself to a few. The people around you will also become much more jovial after a drink or two themselves and this years festivities may not actually end up with a tree being lit on fire, though I still recommend hiding the matches just in case.

To top it off, I know I always have trouble falling asleep on Christmas Eve with the anticipation of Santa Claus, stockings, and such, so a few of these babies are sure to drift me off to sleep with visions of sugar plums dancing through my head.

Hope your holidays are merry and bright!

    My holiday will be merry if I get drinks like these! Thank you for sharing! And I love your photos! I’ve never had a chocolate martini but since chocolate have antioxidants I should try one. I’m on a bit of a health kick lately…
