‘Tis the season for holiday entertaining, and what better way to get in the spirit than festive cocktails?

Mixologist Johnny Swet, who has created cocktail menus for such celebrity hotspots as the NYC lounge JIMMY, Rogue & Canon and the newly opened lounge, The Skylark, has designed some eye-catching, colorful cocktails that incorporate fruitwater (the naturally fruit flavored, zero calorie sparkling water beverage from the makers of vitaminwater).

Cheers!
