The 2nd Annual Holiday Spirits Bazaar was a roaring success–Astor Center was packed with a thirsty crowd ready for some festive imbibing! From vodka cocktails mixed with pumpkin puree to whiskey milk punch to hot apple cider laced with herbaceous Becherovka, there were so many tantalizing holiday drinks to choose from–we think a few guests may have left a little dizzy. Get the full list of party recipes here, check out additional photos on Metromix and The Dizzy Fizz Facebook, and by all means–be sure to subscribe to this blog so you don’t miss next year’s big bash!
