Making Spirits Bright with 5 Festive Cocktails

cocktailJust last night I managed my first corporate holiday party of the season. The Meeting Planner arrived with bells on, fully prepared to delight his guests with two signature cocktails at his open bar. Seasonal in nature, of course, he pre-printed the recipes and framed them in gold at our bar. So today I bring to you 5 festive holiday cocktail recipes so that you, too, may pick your "signature" drink!
