Whether You Are Snowed In or Dealing with a Fast Thaw, Great Cocktails for Your Weekend with Absolut Elyx!

Snow days are a great opportunity to enjoy a drink with your girls while you Netflix and chill or get a group together to cozy up with cocktails by the fireplace. Need some inspiration? While Los Angeles hasn’t got snow, the mountains sure have and considering the landslides, others might need these cocktails equally as much.

These cocktails feature Absolut Elyx and it’s a great spirit to work with. These cocktails will take you on a taste trip because a couple of them will feel like Key West or the tropics.
Invite friends and family over this weekend for a round of cocktails! It would certainly take the “chill” out of the air and weather.
