California Cosmopolitan Cocktail Recipe

We were asked by DeKuyper to come up with a signature cocktail that would be fun to serve during the holidays. Most people think of eggnog or peppermint as their Christmas flavors of choice, but when I think winter... I think citrus! I love the sweet and tangy flavors citrus brings to a drink, and since I am a California girl (by way of New Jersey), I wanted to create a California cosmopolitan cocktail recipe that highlights the relaxed, casual, West Coast lifestyle and would brighten up any holiday party.

I was invited by Tend to create a video, sharing some of my favorite Christmas ornament DIY ideas. I can't tell you how fun this was.

I headed to a cool DIY space in San Francisco called Workshop. They had everything set up there (including a makeup and hair person). Given that I spend most of my days in my office (garage), in my yoga pants, in front of my computer, it was such a change, and I felt like a real celebrity. Kim Kardashian, watch out!
