Drink Your Way Through the Holidays with Wild Turkey!
Note: Only idiots drink and drive. If you’re an idiot, do not read this post!
This post is for those of us who choose to stay home and avoid the holidays, crazy family members, and anything else that wreaks of commercialism. I am anti-Christmas, holiday anything, and killing myself trying to buy gifts. I want to hide so far up under a rock during the holiday season, that the dirt under it gets jealous, lolll. So anyways, with that being said this holiday…. much like all of my other holidays, will be filled with lots of booze! Not just any booze… good booze!
One of my favorite cocktails in the whole wide world is the American Honey cocktail, served at the Marriott Marquee in Times Square. Unfortunately, I don’t have the recipe to share with you all. Wild Turkey PR provided me with two recipes to share with you all. As previously mentioned, Wild Turkey offers different versions of their popular bourbon. The newest kid on the block is the Wild Turkey Spiced Bourbon. Whether you are having the classic version, the American Honey, or the Spiced version… you will find that Wild Turkey is the perfect beverage to get you through the holidays (while hiding under a rock lolll)!
Below are a two recipes to help you cope….
