Just because the snow is coming and a chill is in the air doesn’t mean we can’t cuddle up this holiday season with a Merry Margarita right? This is simple, Christmas flavored, and so delicious on those chilly winter nights when you want a little buzz, but don’t want to have to go out to get one!

Cocktail Crate is a company that takes mix-in’s to a whole new level. Each mixer is made with local farmers ingredients and organic spices right here in NYC. You can find them at Smorgoasburg in BK and at retail stores in NY. This fun mixer went beautifully with Casa Noble Tequila, as the citrus in the spirit complimented the orange and spice in the mixer. Cocktail Crate also offers several other fantastic flavors, in which my favorites are the Lavender, Holiday Old Fashioned, and Ginger Bee.
