I love a signature cocktail at parties. It’s a great way to minimize expense and remove one more thing from the shoulders of the host. So I asked an experienced and a budding mixologist to create a set of drinks that they think could put anyone into the holiday spirit. Up first is my friend Hector and his “Pink Crane” …..
Hector works in the wine industry and has become quite the budding mixologist in his off time. Given the instructions to create a drink that was light, refreshing and easy on the wallet, Hector spent a weekend working (aka drinking…) to come up with this delicious holiday libation. The unexpected note of vanilla/almond is what makes this cocktail so unique – it’s the perfect up note to take the drink to a new level. It’s also the reason why called it the Pink Crane….light, refreshing and definitely a drink that will bring your guests good luck in the coming new year!
