Everyone knows that the winter holidays are the most intoxicating time of the year.
Wait--that wasn't quite right. What I meant was, the holidays are the best time of the year to get intoxicated. (I mean, let's be honest) And what better way to get toasted--and stay toasty--than with Christmas cookie-inspired cocktails?
Well, Partida tequila was kind enough to send on the SpyStaff some tasty tequila samples (also officially marking the first time we've ever received a fedex parcel fulla tequila) and recipes--and here are our two favorites for you to (*hic!*) enjoy.
