Let's face it, we all get a little stressed around the holidays. Planning travel dates, putting up the tree, restringing tangled lights on the tree because there's always that one bulb that takes out half of the lights on the tree, the kiddos home from school on Christmas break, last minute shopping to finish the never ending list of Christmas gifts, and getting all of the presents wrapped and under the tree just in time for Santa to visit. Whew. That was exhausting! Well this holiday season we're all in luck. Coastal Living is unwinding with Boozy Almond-Honey Hot Chocolate. This cold weather cocktail may not melt the snow but it is guaranteed to melt those worries away. So sit back and relax! To spread holiday cheer, appropriate for all ages, substitute amaretto liqueur for a dash of amaretto extract. Say goodbye to store-bought and hello to homemade holiday cocoa that is sure to become your favorite tradition every year.

Hot chocolate not your thing? No worries, you made this nice list this year, so enjoy a special holiday spritzer from Rudolph and Southern Living!
