Or is it? I have to say its been difficult to get into the holiday spirit the last few years mainly due to the fact that I find myself unemployed, yet again. Fourth year in a row. That makes it hard to participate in holiday festivities so when I saw this drink recipe pop up on my Pinterest feed, you know I had to make it. You know, feeling quite Grinch-like and all.
Funny, being a former bartender I seem to always have a pretty well stocked home bar. I had all the ingredients to make this drink except the OJ and Sprite. Not bad! I’m glad it worked out that well because this cocktail is quite good and would actually be good anytime of year. Due to its coloring, it could be a festive drink for Christmas, for St. Patrick’s Day, or you could even add a bit of blue food coloring to make it more turquoise and it would be a great summertime drink.
Whatever time of year you choose to make The Grinch, I’m sure you will totally enjoy it as I did!
Live it up and drink it down!
