The holiday season is here and today we have a delicious holiday cocktail for you to ring in the holidays with – our Cranberry Honey Blossom Cocktail. This festive sip will be the toast of your holiday party.


Holiday planning has commenced and I will be having a homemade holiday with well-thought out gifts and treats for those that we adore.  We will be crafting gift baskets filled with some of my favorite spirits and mixers and, for the tequila aficionados, it will be a holiday with the makings for this delicious sip.


We love the flavors of cranberry and orange. This cocktail is so easy to make and it’s simple to adjust the amount accordingly for parties where you might need to make more than just a few. Make a pitcher of this signature sip and you can be a guest at your own soiree! No need to play bartender all evening, right?


The key to this drink is the spiced honey syrup that is simmered with orange rind, star anise and cinnamon. If you want a stronger honey flavor, just increase the honey using a ratio of 2 to 1 and it should work out lovely. For the perfect pop of citrus, freshly squeezed orange juice compliments the tart cranberry juice. I paired these flavors with Tequila, which I often use in many of my tequila cocktails. This drink would also be lovely paired with Spiced Honey that has a touch of honey with notes of flavor.


This holiday season, for a festive holiday cocktail that will have your guests dancing the night away, serve this Cranberry Honey Blossom Cocktail!
