On the Third Day of Christmas, Spectrum Design Group Gives You: Three Holiday Cocktails

On the third day of Christmas, Spectrum Design Group gives you: Three Holiday Cocktails, Two Resolutions, and a New Website in a pear tree.

Welcome to Holiday Cocktails with Dawn and Cory.

There’s nothing better than snuggling by a fire with the people you love during the holidays. Imagine Christmas carols playing throughout your home, little kids’ laughter in the background, and the scent of fresh-baked cookies. The only thing you are missing is a pretty cocktail in hand. While we know that this all sounds like a dream holiday and our realities may be different, either way, you can’t go wrong with trying out one of our specialty cocktails.


Very Merry Moscow Mule

First up, and Cory’s favorite, is the Very Merry Moscow Mule.


  • copper mug {if you are feeling fancy}
  • 2 oz favorite vodka
  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • ginger beer
  • lime, cranberries, and rosemary sprig for garnish


  • Fill your copper mug with ice
  • Measure 2 oz of vodka and pour into glass
  • Measure 1 oz of cranberry juice and pour
  • Top off with ginger beer until full and slightly stir
  • Time to garnish! Squeeze your lime, top with cranberries, and add your sprig

Christmas Sangria

Next up is Dawn’s favorite, Christmas Sangria.
