Amazing Holiday Parties Can be Lots of Work Without Some Help

This year’s amazing holiday parties have started and everyone is talking about the food & cocktails at last year’s party, ugly sweaters, where to buy the newest Alexa gadgets and the weirdest thing they ever found under the Christmas tree. While your guests are deeply involved in conversation, you will keep them happy with this year’s newest Pinterest recipes you spent all week planning and preparing. (It only took 48 straight hours to make that appetizer display shaped like a 4 foot Christmas tree.) At least these stellar cocktails are easy to make and look & taste so good your guests will be singing you praises instead of singing Christmas carols. This local San Antonio influencer is ready to make the Snowflake Chiller cocktail recipe for my holiday party this year!
