We are officially at the end of the year. Can I just say that this past year flew by. It was full of so many changes for me, my family and this website – new jobs, new writers, lots of new cocktail recipes. I can’t wait to see what the next year will bring. Anyway, enough about that. Let’s get down to business with these New Year’s Eve cocktail recipes so we can figure out what to drink as we toast to the star of a new year.
As usual with the holiday roundups, the first part of the post will include New Year’s Eve cocktail recipes sent to me from PR companies. The second part will include links to recipes I’ve created or found on the Interwebz. Enjoy!
