#ChicEats: 4 Cocktails to Make at Home
There's no denying this time of year is stressful. Holidays, New Year's resolutions and colder weather (or strangely non-seasonal temps in New York) can all add up to be one wonderful mess of anxiety. So, indulging in a cocktail or two certainly can't hurt. From a new version of the classic Bloody Mary to a fizzy lavender concoction that will have you thinking of warmer days ahead, here are four single serve cocktails to make at home.
