Prep time






  • Three lime wedges

  • Three fresh mint leaves

  • ½ ounce of simple syrup

  • Three ounces of your choice of sake

  • Splash of club soda

  • Shake and strain into a tall glass over fresh ice

Time to Celebrate

This year, the holiday season presents a new set of challenges for us to work through. For example, instead of avoiding conversation with that one relative, you’ll now have to worry about helping them learn how to join the family Zoom party with their webcam and microphone enabled; nothing warrants a drink more than that troubleshooting experience. 

Regardless of what your family celebration looks like this year, you deserve to kick back and enjoy a little something different; the On Holiday cocktail is the perfect way to bring in new and old traditions alike to your family party. 

Share the Love

Making craft cocktails at home is a wonderful way to bring people together, even if it’s only those who immediately live under the same roof. If you’re growing fresh herbs in your container garden this year, share the love by mixing them up in your next batch of cocktails – what a great way to share the love of growing good.
