Congratulations to Brian M.! His “Visions of Sugar Plums” cocktail had us seeing visions—it was THAT good. The blend of ingredients brought the overall flavor to a higher level and made a really elegant drink with a gorgeous orange color. We'll definitely be making this classy cocktail for our next holiday get together.
