Delicious brandy slush mixed with ginger ale and fresh cranberries....a beautiful, bubbly, and festive holiday beverage!
They are the same cousins we spent some time with this past summer, when we went to see them in Michigan. To be fair, they are second cousins....and to be clear, they have only met one another a handful of times in their lives! But none of that has ever seemed to matter! From the first time they met a few years ago, their bond has been strong, and has grown quickly. They had tons of fun together when we visited in August, and had an absolute BLAST when they visited this past week! Swimming, sleepovers, movies, playtime, fun on the hotel elevators.....it couldn't have been better! Unless, of course, Ellia hadn't been sick....
....and unless I could have had one of these drinks! They remind me of our visit to Michigan this past summer, because this is the drink Jorden's aunt made for us when we first got there. They are deliciously sweet and oh so inviting...and with the addition of fresh cranberries, they are perfect for the holidays! Perfect for friends....or family....or whoever decides to pay you a visit. Just be sure you make enough.....you never know just how much fun you might end up having!
