Spice up your post-holiday fete with the perfect signature drink

Candy Cane Cocktail

Candy cane cocktail in January? Don’t mind if I do.

In Maine, winter is far from ready to quit when the calendar flips, so why not extend the holiday cheer into the new year as well? Post-holiday holiday parties are gaining popularity, and for good reason: people’s schedules are more flexible, visiting family members are back at home, and all the hustle, bustle, and stress of the holidays have been left behind, replaced by resolutions, exercise regimens, and a renewed sense of optimism. In fact, your friends are probably more cheerful now than they’ve been in months.

If you’re considering a post-holiday gathering, why not plan it around a festive signature drink? If you need ideas, part-time Mainer Martha Stewart has you covered.
