cranberry cocktail stock

Every host throwing a celebration, big or small, needs a signature. So we asked Grace McCotter and Demetria Loukas, bar manager and bartender at Michelin-starred chef Robert Weidmaier’s Wildwood Kitchen, how to craft a quintessential signature cocktail in a pinch for the holidays this year.

This festive take on a classic cocktail is sure to be a party-guest-pleaser. “It’s easy to whip up for a large crowd, yet elegant enough for a holiday cocktail party,” say Grace and Demetria.
