Each and every one of these drinks will make a great drink for entertaining this season. If you asked us to pick our favorite it would be like Sophie's Choice but with three kids instead of two. Ok sorry...that's kinda a bummer way to start off a happy post about delicious cocktails! Anywho, there's a drink for the die-hard vodka consumer, one for the tea-nut, and one for the gin lover. We love all of these ingredients and would say that each and every bottle will make a great hostess or holiday gift this month.
