What would the holidays be without a fabulous cocktail??!! I got you covered this holiday season! Check out all my favorite liquors, mixed drinks and cocktail recipes below!


Consistently recognized as one of the finest XOs in the world, Courvoisier® X.O. Cognac is a very old blend of fi ne and well-matured cognacs. The blend is a selection by master blender, Patrice Pinet, of beautifully matured eaux-de-vie, aged from 11 to 25 years, to highlight the complexity and richness of cognac aromas.

(SRP $150)

The Naked Turtle White Rum 

They know that goodness starts from within. That’s why their rum is full of love, and free of gluten and preservatives. This smooth spirit is made with quality sugarcane molasses and distilled 5x with the pristine waters of St. Croix. They're bottled “naked,” which means they never touch the inside of an oak barrel, letting the crystal clear taste shine through.

When you enjoy this award winning rum, you’re actually doing good for the world! Did you know every one of their bottles saves a baby sea turtle? Drink to that!
