The holidays are coming, and I had a friend call me for holiday cocktail ideas for a party she is throwing. I gave her this recipe for a Candy Cane Cocktail, and she was so excited about it. It’s so pretty and simple to make, and guests absolutely love it! This recipe is from NoMa Social in New Rochelle, New York. If you live near there, check it out as they are having holiday specials such as from 4-8pm you can take advantage of the NoMa Social’s 4×4 deal where you can choose any 4 different wines, cocktails, beers and tapas for only 4 dollars each during the winter season. Happy weekend!
