Next up we're talking all about festive cocktails! For this last minute Holiday gathering we called upon the name of our trusty favorite drink, La Croix! Hydrate while you dehydrate y'all! We're calling this cocktail Merry Cranberry. 


- 1 1/2 oz. of Gin

- 1 oz. Cranberry Juice

- 1/2 oz. honey water

- Cran-Rasberry La Croix

- Rosemary Sprigs for garnish

Pour gin, cranberry juice, and honey water over ice and shake, shake, shake it off...unlike Taylor who did not take her own advice. Pour the shaken mixture into a martini glass and top off with a splash of La Croix. If you're feeling fancy and festive, add a sprig of rosemary and sugar the rim for some extra detail. YUM! Then drink up, grinches! 

P.S. Making honey water is a breeze just use 1 cup of water and 1 cup of honey and heat it on the stove until it’s all mixed together.

A round of applause to Delish for making us look like we actually have our lives together with little effort. This delicious recipe for Cranberry Brie Bites combines some of our favorite ingredients bread and cheese. These ingredients create the perfect holiday appetizer to impress all of your friends. This recipe calls for a mini muffin tin but we love cheese so much we opted for a regular size tin to get our fill.

- 1 Tube of Crescent Rolls

- 8 oz. Brie Wheel

- 1 Cup of Cranberry Sauce

- Flour (for rolling out dough)

- 1/2 Cup of Chopped Pecans

Preheat oven to 375° and grease a muffin tin with cooking spray. On a lightly floured surface, roll out crescent dough, and pinch seams together. Cut into 12 squares and place squares into muffin tin slots. Cut brie into chunks and place inside of the crescent dough. Top with a spoonful of cranberry sauce, some chopped pecans, and one little sprig of rosemary. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the dough is lookin' golden. TADA! Make sure you serve these babies warm.
