Get Merry This Xmas: Bad Kitty Cocktails & Kitten Kat Mocktails

Happy Holidays!  Tis the season to put on your little black dress, holiday heels, and have yourself a merry festive cocktail.  While most glasses will be filled with decadent spirits, it's nice to balance that with a festive mocktail that doesn't make your vision blur and tongue slur.  Too often we get all dolled up for our holiday events only to have sipped one to many drink-e-poos that leave us falling out of our heels, ripping our skirts, and looking more like a holiday 'has been' than a holiday hottie.

So for all you kittens out there that would like to look good, stay slim, and healthy (and for all you cougars too that need a little less fire under your mane and tail) here's a festive holiday mocktail to pretty up your martini glass.



Rim a martini glass with crushed candy canes
Into a martini shaker:
Mix equal parts cranberry or pomegranate juice with coconut water (depending on size of glass you'll need about 2-3 oz of each
Add ONE drop of peppermint essential oil (1 drop per drink)
Ice - Shake - Pour
Garnish with a mini candy cane

Now for all your big kats that scoff at the idea of sipping juice from a cocktail cup, here's Gilly's Sassy Kat Version.  I must say....it's REALLY good!  For those of you who don't know Gillian, check out her site ShinyGilly.com.  This hottie is super authentic, inspiring, and is posting daily inspirations and other tips and yoga videos.  We just shot an episode for this friday's G Force Friday (G force is her and her main man Gino hitting on relationship questions.)  They are a riot to watch!  She'll be posting the video of us making the cocktails on friday and i'll be sure to post on here as well.  Enjoy!

Rim glass with candy canes
Into a Shaker:
