Holiday Spirits


I still think it's too early for all the Christmas marketing merriment we're being bombarded with. Alas, if you can't beat them, join them.

A new holiday cocktail was concocted last night.

May I introduce you to The NoŽl, a none-too-distant cousin of the Jasper ...

  • Vodka
  • Cranberry raspberry juice
  • splash of fizzy water
  • sprig of holly and/or mistletoe as garnish, if available


The Jasper, as long-time associates (ie fellow Betty Ford alumni) will recall, is a similar labor of liquid love ... just take out the cran/rasp, replace with orange juice, and ditch the garnish. Also quite lovely.
