Bubbles: Christmas Cocktails

22 Dec

As you’re reading this, there’s only 3 more sleeps until Christmas! It’s pretty crazy when you think of how fast December has flown by. As much as I don’t like how fast time seems to be moving, I have to admit I’m pretty anxious for Christmas to get here.  We’ve had the same holiday traditions since I was little, and they’re pretty awesome in my opinion ;). First comes Christmas Eve. We host my mom’s side of the family at our house, and it’s a night full of champagne, good food and even better desserts. I tend to overindulge with the chocolate fountain, lemon squares and champagne (of course…it’s the holidays after all!). It’s a classy but low-key night, and I love getting dressed up for the occasion and seeing my family.

Then comes Christmas day. After opening presents, we head to my great aunts house for a ravioli feast of epic proportions. Think of 50+ Italians eating tons and tons of homemade ravioli until you no longer feel comfortable. It’s pretty amazing, and while it’s tempting to wear my most comfortable sweatpants, I also like to get pretty dressed up for the feast.

As holiday tradition goes here on Baubles to Bubbles, I compiled some mouth-watering cocktail ideas to help make the holidays a little more festive. I had planned on doing a video post for this, but free time has not been my friend this month. I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Christmas. Cheers!

    I’m with you! Someone said to me the other day that you live your life at the speed limit of your age… This year has *flown.*

    Hope you have a great time with your family tonight/tomorrow. Merry Christmas, Olivia!
