Mistletoe Martini

Simple syrup
Lime juice
Club soda
Green food coloring
Fake mistletoe and holly (for garnish)

Reindeer Chocotini

Mint leaves
Cranberries (for garnish)

Take some lemonade and shake with some pomegranate seeds and mint. Pour into an icy glass. Add a straw that has been skewered through some cranberries to create a cranberry straw, and it’s done!
