Hopefully you guys are ready for the big day, because hate to break it to you, but if you aren’t… well, you might not ever be.  At least not this year.  Which is totally fine!  We can be friends who aren’t doing anything together!

Okay, that isn’t entirely true.  Boy and I are going out to a romantic dinner tomorrow and then I am going to cook us a nice surf n’ turf meal (in my pajamas) on Christmas.  So, we are celebrating… we are just doing it in low key style. Holiday Hustler Cocktail with Irish Cream-95 Holiday Hustler Cocktail with Irish Cream-120Anyways, since I figured, or hope, you guys have your menu planned out, I decided to share a fabulous cocktail perfect for Christmas or Christmas Eve with you all.

If you want to get really Christmas-y with it, I suggest adding a candy cane to the glass as a stirrer.  And if you really want to indulge, a little whipped cream on top never hurt anybody.  😉

**Disclosure:  I received free bottles of various flavored Irish Cream from my friends over at Saint Brendan’s for my own personal tasting.  I loved their holiday flavors of Irish Cream so much I freely chose to develop a drink with it.   For more flavors and great recipes check out their website here.
