Drink Your Christmas Tree!

Drink Your Christmas Tree!

Taking down your Christmas tree can be a real downer. It's an official sign that the holidays are over and it's back to the real world. A world with fewer holiday cookies, shimmering lights and breaks from work.

However, we have a way to keep the Christmas 'spirit' going. Literally. 

Save a few sprigs of your real tree to make this simple syrup for a cocktail reminiscent of all of the best parts of the season.
