Holiday Cocktails

{c/o 50 Bleu Vodka}

My bestie came over for a holiday cocktail sleepover! ON A MONDAY BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE JOBS! It ended with both of us singing two different songs about sugar at the same time thinking we were singing the same song, and then me sitting down to write this, so please forgive any and all grammatical errors. HAPPY COCKTAILIDAYS!

The kind people at 50 Bleu Vodka reached out to collaborate and share some booze to take the edge off the mad stress of the holiday season. The founders, mixologists Justin D’Angelo and Michael Monrreal, designed these delish drinks for Heels in the Hills. I hope you enjoy them immensely (if you are 21 and over, obvs, legal legal), whether it be at a holiday party you’re hosting or on a Monday in a onesie like me and Katierose.

{THE PHOTOGRAPHER. I made Katierose come sleep over to help photograph this since Tony is off making movies in Texas and I’m sick of sleeping alone. That onesie is EVERYTHING. So are the 5 dogs currently residing at our house.}
