Merry Christmas Eve, y'all! Since I do not celebrate the holiday at home, I was thrilled to help plan Monday night's company holiday party at doug carpenter & associates. To kick off the evening, we enjoyed a festive holiday punch (because what's a party without punch) named after our favorite flavor of Le Croix: Pamplemousse. The refreshing gin and grapefruit combo is quite heavenly, and the backdrop of our modern Christmas tree wall elevated the experience even more so. I highly recommend this drink -- adapt it for two, or serve to your entire New Years Eve guest list. Cheers!
