Cranberry Christmas Cocktails
I’m sure it comes as a surprise to no one, that we have a lot of Cranberry Cocktails. I love cranberries and hate that they only seem to be available around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Not to worry though, I have 5 bags in my freezer so that I can enjoy them anytime I want!
