It’s about that time again ya’ll! New post up on the blog, and were finally comin at you with a little cocktail recipe. Struggling to decide what kind of cocktail to make for your New Years Eve party, or to just have in general? Well I’ve got you covered because these Cranberry Moscow mules are easy, cute to look at, festive, and abbbbbsolutely delicious! Also keep reading because I have some sassy little numbers you mayyyy just want to check out for a last minute NYE outfit idea;)
Let’s talk Moscow mules. First and foremost, I would like to address the fact that I spent a solid 15 minutes in the liquor section of the grocery store trying to find ginger beer for this drink, ONLY to find that ginger beer is in fact NOT alcoholic and you will probably have better luck looking in the pop/soda water section -_- lol. Seriously though! News to me! This whole time I have been drinking Moscow mules thinking I’m getting this extra little boozy add in when in fact I’m really just drinking a mixture of vodka, some other mix ins, and a more gingery version of ginger ale…that my friends is a Moscow Mule in a nutshell. But I’m not mad at it! Its refreshingly delicious and hey, you can always get that little extra boozy addition by just giving yourself a heavier pour of vodka, am I right? I haven’t gotten out of the holiday spirit yet people. I am celebrating all through New Years, just giving 2017 that extra boot out the door. So bring on the cocktails!

Anyone else EXTRA ready for 2017 to be over? 2017 has been a crazy whirlwind for me. I will never forget 2017 because honestly Matt and I have literally went through the lowest lows in our lives, but also the highest highs. It’s been nuts! Talk about a rollercoaster of a life. In all honesty though it has been a year of growth and overcoming obstacles, and I really think it has set the tone for 2018. I think 2018 will really be our year to flourish, and we will start to see all of our progress and ideas come to fruition and I am so excited.
