Now that Christmas is just around the corner, I'm starting to feel festive. One manifestation of that feeling is being in the mood for a special holiday cocktail. I generally just stick to wine, keeping it simple and uncomplicated like all other things in my life, but the holidays call for something special.
I started searching for cocktail recipes and came across this in Food and Wine. Its called the Evergreen Swizzle.
Now, that just sounds really good to me, wintery and fresh and herbal. The problem is, I'm guessing it would be impossible to find pine liqueur here in Mexico.
So . . . my next choice is a French 75, a fizzy, lemony drink, usually made with gin, but this one calls for cognac. Sounds good either way. And, the ingredients aren't hard to come by.
