Alyssa Rapp, Founder and CEO of Bottlenotes, Inc. shares three of her favorite holiday cocktails that will impress all your guests this season!

It seems hard to believe that the holiday season is already here. If you are interested in adding a little flair to your entertaining and celebrating, why not do so with some cocktails or spirit-infused accoutrements to your holiday season?

At Bottlenotes’ newest publication, The Proof, where we talk about all things cocktail culture, we have a few mantras this holiday season (and recipes to go with them!)


We’re “Bullish on Bourbon” this Holiday Season

Bourbon nuts are a great item to nibble on- and perfect pairing for any holiday cheese board or in a candy dish on their own. Find the recipe here. Bourbon apple cider is a fabulous way to warm up on a chilly winter night. Served in small tea cups with a cinnamon stick, it also makes for a festive welcome to any holiday event. Find out how to make it here.
