Sparkling Cider


Is it too soon for super festive cocktail posts?  I THINK NOT!  Especially because TODAY I HEARD CHRISTMAS MUSIC ON THE RADIO!!!!!  I’m ready to hit the couch, watch Elf and drink sparkling cider until I’m just a little bit giddy with the holiday spirit.  Ok let’s be honest, I’m already a little giddy with the holiday spirit- these would just give me an excuse!   Delicious, festive, pretty and the perfect sipper for the holiday season.  Have at them my friends!  xx- Sarah  {this post was produced in collaboration with Sarah Dickenson}
