Gin and Sauvignon sipper

Sometimes you just need a good drink in the middle of the week. This one is stout without being too strong, flavorful but not overwhelming, and goes great with relaxing by a fire. Ingredients: 2 oz Empress gin (this gives it the beautiful color, but other types will work)...

Christmas Sangria
