I don’t know about you, but I’m just starting to recover from all the holiday festivities of the last few weeks. Whew!

So, I am actually not participating in any big New Year’s Eve parties this year.

Nope. Instead, I’m opting for quiet time with family the rest of the week. No big New Year’s plans other than a board game by the fire with my husband and kids.

But whether you are entertaining a crowd or just quietly celebrating alone, I have a simple cocktail for you that is perfect for ringing in the New Year.

In fact, it’s fun for any celebration. So you can always save it for another time later in the year.

Just like my signature Jamtini Cocktail, this recipe uses up some pantry goodness!
