ARE THESE EASY TO MAKE?
If there’s one thing about me and cooking (or making drinks), it’s I prefer simple ingredients. Even more so, I don’t want to have to dirty half my kitchen to make something.
That’s what I love most about my Vodka Christmas Punch. There are only six ingredients, five if you leave out the alcohol. It’s also great either way.
The drinks I’ve rounded up for you are just as simple and can be enjoyed all winter season long. You will also find they are versatile and can easily become an “adult beverage.”
