The holidays are fast approaching and with it, I'm sure, your anxiety about having to be sober around your family. Fear not, I am here to provide you with a cocktail that is both festive and strong. The smokey cider uses a lot of ingredients that are already in your home so you won't have to run out last minutes to buy anything.
If you don't have the mezcal this cocktail calls for, use rum. Don't have that? Use tequila...don't have that?
Desperate times call for desperate measures and I'd say your aunt cornering you in front of the turkey to ask when you're finally going to settle down and get married is DESPERATE.
