Since it's holiday season, I know a lot of people are hosting or going to parties.  It's always helpful to have ideas and delicious treats to bring along.  This cocktail (or mocktail) is a great drink you can make to contribute, whether it's your own party or you are the guest.  The amounts are easily adjusted to feed a crowd, or just a few people (or just yourself!).  Just a few simple ingredients are thrown together to make a delicious drink.  I made a non-alcoholic pitcher for my husband (he's not a drinker) and I, so I just added alcohol to my own drink.  I found it slightly addicting.  I don't like soda very much, but I found the fizziness from the ginger ale was just right.  Even though this is the perfect drink for the holiday season, I found myself dreaming of a warm beach.  Make this today!
