Don’t forget the garnish! Our Honey Lollipops make such a special garnish to any cocktail! I have been known to crush them into tiny pieces and rim a cocktail with them.
Mojitos really are a classic summer drink, and this recipe for Honey Mojitos makes the classic cocktail extra special. Hailing from Cuba, mojitos are cool, sweet, refreshing and well suited for summery days by the pool or vacations to white sandy beaches.
This Pomegranate Beer Shandy is a great unusual drink for your parties. Made with beer and fruit juice, it’s not too sweet but still bubbly and colorful!

As you prepare your home for guests, don’t forget the ambiance. For the full effect, light a bunch of forest candles 30 minutes before your guests arrive. They will arrive at a home filled with the aroma of the holidays. Offering a signature cocktail in a special glass further sets the tone.
