It’s hard to say no to a fun cocktail on New Year’s Eve, especially the pretty ones. I’m not much of a bartender myself…I’m more of a consumer. And as an expert consumer in the realm of fruity, fun and sparkly New Year’s drinks, today I wanted to share 20 New Year’s Eve cocktails that caught my eye this season. One (or possibly several) of these lovelies will certainly be on the menu this NYE around here…
