This past Sunday, I hosted a Friendsgiving potluck at my apartment! It was so great to have everyone in the same place. We played games, ate lots of food, and of course enjoyed some Holiday drinks. Luckily, The Harvard Common Press sent me the amazing Wine Cocktails cookbook to review for a Boston Blogger Cookbook Tour! I chose to make the “Champagne Punch” to review for all of you and let’s just sat it’s absolutely delicious! But wait, there’s more! One lucky ready will win their own copy of Wine Cocktails – Enter below for your chance to win – Good Luck!
