Three Holiday Cocktails

Holiday Inspired Cocktails
A couple weeks ago, I decided to bring on my good friend Beth to be the cocktail contributor for From Rain to Shine. Expect to see some delicious cocktail recipes coming up in 2014! Beth works for ONEHOPE wine, an awesome company who donates parts of their proceeds to various non-profit organizations. She came up with these three holiday cocktails inspired by the season to make your festivities a bit more holly and jolly.
