You guys, sometimes I think half this blog is dedicated to the mixed bevs and cocktails Graham and I are concocting on any given weekend. I promise I know there's more to life than your next libation, but these holiday drinks are too good not to share! And because I have a business that I love, I am adding a little Arbonne-inspired love to the mix with two, limited-time products you've just got to get your hands on this holiday season. The first is our green apple fizzie. Oh man, am I ever in . . .

We'll even time our visit to the top of the hour so we can be there when the rooster crows in the produce department. Oh Wegmans, I hope you know how much simple pleasure you . . .
I can't quite remember when I started making my pomegranate sangria, but it has been my Thanksgiving contribution for at least the last 8 years (I definitely remember making these when the twins were babies because mama needed SOMETHING). It's not the most expensive drink in the world, but it does require some prep (I recommend making it at least several hours beforehand to allow time for the fruit to soak up the alcohol).
