Wow - the end of the year...it's finally here. I truly didn't know if we would make it, y'all.
No better way to send 2020 quietly into the night than with a festive cocktail, amirite?
This New Year's Eve was spent with my quarantine duo, but we still wanted to bring a bit of fun to a much different celebration than we are used to. Taking inspiration from Jac Vanek, my fave emo-kid turned fabulous star, I too decided to make this signature cocktail & send 2020 what it deserved - two middle fingers with a smile.
Let's hope this cocktail also includes some good juju that rolls into 2021. While I can't guarantee that, I can guarantee that this will taste delicious!
You can easily batch this cocktail to make 2+ at a time for your mini-NYE celebration, so I recommend finding your favorite set of fancy glasses & getting to it!
That's Irish for cheers - don't y'all know that by now?
She's Over You 2020
