I’m not sure about Santa, but this girl needs a cocktail. Something strong, yet fruity, and definitely festive since Christmas is tomorrow. (Okay, in 6 days, I tend to exaggerate). As I told you yesterday, I’m a bit behind in holiday preparations. Not only that, I’ve hit my “end of year” slump where I sit around and feel bad about all the things I didn’t accomplish this year. Please tell me I’m not the only pitiful loon who does this. Someone? So, when one (read me) starts to feel the burden of stress and sadness, the only answer is a cocktail. And what better way to lift your spirits and send you a caroling than sipping something called a mistletoe margarita?
Doesn’t that just make you so happy? The bright holiday coloring, the plump berries, the adorable swirly straw. How can anyone feel anything but holiday glee and pure Christmas spirit when sipping this fruity (and pretty) drink?
I love margaritas, but the restaurant and bar varieties are usually so laden with sugar I can barely stomach one done. I got into making margaritas over the summer (I was a bit of a drunk – don’t judge me) and really mastered the art of making a margarita that tastes like fruity, boozy perfection without the need for a Diabetic pump. This pretty mistletoe marg (made from pomegranate and cranberry juice) has NO added sugar, so all you taste is the natural sweetness and tartness of the luscious fruit.
If you’re having trouble mustering up the holiday spirit, just have one of these. You’ll be dancing, mistletoeing, beaming with cheer and singing Yuletide carols in no time. Plus, if you leave one of these out for Santa, you’ll get three times the gifts since they are a leeeettle bit strong (and because Santa is a bit of a lush himself, I hear from the elves).
