12 Drinks of Christmas, Day 11! Soltado Serrano & Cinnamon Tequila Sparks New Years Eve!

As we are starting to roll down that slippery slope into January 2016, it’s time to be looking at and getting ready to mix up a new batch of cocktails. Here’s some interesting ones for New Year’s Eve.
N.B. If you realized that New Years Day is on a Friday, then you are in for a treat. If you follow me occasionally or know me just a bit when it comes to cocktails, any holiday that lands on a Friday, always encourages me to include MORE cocktails over the weekend. So this series won’t be over until at least Saturday 1/2 or maybe Sunday 1/3. So enjoy the recipes, it’s not over til I say it’s over!
