It’s Colleen here today with a delicious holiday cocktail and a last minute holiday gift idea!
Let’s talk cranberries…You can’t just get those gorgeous crimson orbs whenever you want them, so when they are in season, you’ll want to use them in so many delicious ways . . . from quick breads and cakes to cookies and cocktails. You can make a savory glaze for ham or add them to various side dishes.

Those tiny beautiful little red beauties are the spark that ignites my brain, excitement & holiday spirit each year!

So while my family was fast asleep, I crept downstairs and grabbed a pot, the cranberries, water, sugar and a lime.
