So this year, my mother-in-law was in charge of the cocktails. She is usually a fantastic chef, so I was excited to see what she would come up with.
The first cocktail was something she called a Santa Stinger which had equal parts green crème de menthe and vodka. My father in law mixed the drinks and we all started to sample them.
"This is terrible!" yelled my dad - we all turned to look at him and figured out that he was talking about Fred Claus that was playing on TV and not the cocktail - although, he could have been talking about either.

The next day, the next family meal. It was my turn to come up with the dessert cocktail. I decided to split the cocktail into three smaller ones - the Grasshopper, Brandy Alexander, and Pink Squirrel. To my surprise, the Pink Squirrel was everyone's favorite - everything else tasted too boozy. Personally, I'm still trying to decide which one's my favorite.

Anyway, I hope you had a great Christmas, and a cool New Year's Eve!
