This week started off without the standard case of the Mondays. Cheers to that, right? I attended an event with HauteLook at a beautiful home in the Hollywood Hills. Adrianna of A Cozy Kitchen hosted a cooking demo and whipped up the most delicious vegetable mini pot pies. Next up, we made the most gorgeous hostess gift boxes with Lauren of A Fabulous Fete. I was in charge of shaking up a holiday mocktail! We all love a good cocktail, but it’s always nice to make a batch of a mocktail. It’s a crowd pleaser and can easily be modified for an adult bevvie.
Citrus Cider Mocktail
1 cup apple cider
1/2 cup blood orange juice
1 tablespoon pomegranate juice
2 cinnamon sticks
Combine all ingredients except cinnamon sticks in a shaker with ice. Pour into an old fashioned glass, and garnish with a cinnamon stick.
To transform it into an adult beverage, add 2 oz of your favorite bourbon to the shaker along with other ingredients.
