Tis the season for holiday cocktails! Right now you’re probably squeezing in more shopping between hosting holiday parties, all the while trying to limit your spending.
Smirnoff No. 21 and Smirnoff Peppermint Twist are both delicious, budget-friendly ingredients for festive cocktails at any of your holiday gatherings this season (suggested retail price of $15.99 for each 750mL bottle). What better way to spend quality time with your (21+) loved ones over the holiday break than with tasty cocktails that don’t break the bank.
