Tis the season for holiday gatherings and cozy evenings by the fire. Today I've teamed up with Pottery Barn to share one of my favorite holiday drinks and one of Kiel's with a twist. I was excited to take on this project. I love the excuse to entertain with our Pottery Barn barware for holiday gatherings. The glassware, trays, and stag decanters add a festive touch to any holiday cocktail.  Here's how to make the drinks featured in this post:

Drink 1: The Snowman Spa

1 shot of Baileys per mug

To make the Marshmallow snowman you will need:
2 Regular Sized Marshmallows
1 Square of Chocolate
1 Orange Starburst
1 Powdered Chocolate Truffle
White Frosting

With a toothpick poke a hole for two eyes, one for the nose, and four holes for the mouth in the first marshmallow. For the second marshmallow, poke three even holes down the middle for buttons. Melt a square of chocolate for 30 seconds. Dip a toothpick into the chocolate and fill in the holes for the eyes, mouth, and buttons. Take one orange Starburst and cut an angled silver for the nose. Let the chocolate dry for 5 minutes and then assemble the marshmallows on a peppermint stirrer. Spread a layer of white frosting on top of the marshmallow before placing a chocolate truffle hat on. Place peppermint stirrer in hot chocolate filled mug. Stick two toothpicks in the back of the bottom marshmallow to keep the snowman secure in mug. Enjoy!

Drink 2: The Bourbon Brunch

I4oz  Bourbon Whiskey
4mml pure maple syrup
2oz apple cider
1 oz Goslings ginger beer

Garnish with thick cut candied bacon. (Cook bacon on rack at 350 for 25 minutes. Rub with cayenne pepper, brown sugar, and mayple syrup and bake for another 5-10 minutes in oven). Slit mini Eggo waffle and toast until golden brown. Served over ice.

  9. These kinds of bell-shaped skirts have been often slit in the front in order to reveal your kirtle underneath. Fleshlight sleeves turn out to be longer as well as showcased furnished or even fur-lined cuffs ann chery waist cincher.
