A Very Cherry Christmas Cocktail

I don’t know about you, but whenever I read a recipe card that calls for ginger ale, Christmas Bourbon, cherry juice and orange juice as it’s main ingredients, I know I’m clearing my calendar for a night. I’m hunkering down. No driving. Maybe friends over for a Scrabble or Monopoly marathon. Maybe Netflix. Maybe a crossword puzzle. Maybe Amazon browsing because I hate shopping for gifts and they have everything….. it’s hard to say, but this cocktail will reaffirm your seasonal joy. It will re-calibrate your attitude. It will put you straight – straight up HAPPY.  Possibly ecstatic. Happier than winning at Scrabble, or having hotels on Park Place AND Boardwalk.  Allow yourself this night of very cherry and merry Christmas bliss, before the chaos of the season, and the stale fruitcake, hits you hard.  We got ya.
