Your big meal is over, guests have waddled out, dishes are done…time for a cocktail! And what better than a festive holiday cocktail using ingredients you probably already have left from your dinner? Elisabeth pointed out a Cranberry-Orange Gin and Tonic featured in this month’s Southern Living Magazine and I was immediately sold. Mix one up. You’ll be very happy and it’ll help ease you into that post-turkey nap.
