Our Apple-A-Day holiday inspired cocktail will be a fan favorite this season.

When you look up “holiday season” in Webster’s Dictionary, you likely won’t find what we REALLY associate the holidays with: festive parties, lots of food, thoughtful presents, time with family, so much gratitude—and a little bit of pressure! Let’s get real, Posse. When we all come together for the holidays, we make sure to take extra time to put in a little more effort to make sure our families and friends feel special. But it becomes stressful.

You’ll give your host a hand by providing an additional beverage AND spice up the party in the best way we know how!
