I love the holiday season. It's such a fun and festive time.

While I appreciate how the season presents an opportunity to give (and receive!) wonderful gifts to friends and loved ones, what I truly enjoy about the holidays is how it brings people together. 

And my main M.O. during these holiday get-togethers is to eat, drink and be merry. 

While I love tackling complicated recipes for festive parties in the kitchen, I don't have a lot of skill when it comes to preparing drinks. So, I almost always end up serving wine and champagne. 

But, this holiday season, I wanted to tackle a few mixed drinks. And that's why I was overjoyed to discover these super simple cocktail recipes using Georgian Bay Spirit Co. that each use only three ingredients and a garnish. It doesn't get much simpler than that. My personal favourite was the Smash Screwdriver, though the Aperol offering was a close second!

I plan to serve this at my family holiday party this year — and will likely enjoy them again for other events throughout 2019. 

 Happy holidays!
