Solerno
When it comes to hosting family-friendly holiday parties, few think of offering alcoholic and non-alcoholic variations of the same drink. We developed this blood-orange flavored soda with children, and those who don't imbibe, in mind.Inspired by the fresh flavors and vibrant colors of blood oranges, which appear in markets just before Christmas, and the unique shape of the red glass bottles of Solerno, this cocktail is simple to make, while the slightly-sweet citrus flavor is both refreshing and satisfying.Solerno is a clear Sicilian blood orange liqueur, made from whole blood orange fruit and essential oils. The bottle is a deep red, like the flesh of a blood orange, and takes on a unique design — the bottom features a punt (the indent on wine bottles) that resembles an orange juice strainer. Just looking at the bottle may make you thirsty for a cocktail.While the recipe below is for an adult version, you can leave out the liqueur for a kid-friendly blood orange soda. No one will know the difference.

Fireball Whisky Christmas Hug
This is the perfect drink to get you in the holiday spirit. You might think fireball is too strong a drink for daytime, but it is actually bottled at 33-percent alcohol by volume (making it 66 proof), meaning it contains less alcohol than traditional whisky and most vodka. Its cinnamon spiciness pairs perfectly with sweet and tart flavors of apple and cranberry, which are also common flavors for Thanksgiving dinner.
