A delicious holiday cocktail that combined delicious with fun and festive. A surprisingly not too sweet drink given that we used both unsweetened cranberry juice and fresh mint to give this tartness and the mint flavor without added sweetness.
While the name might fool you, the is a lot going on with this recipe that is both simple, delicious and a refreshing way to delight your friends and family!
