We offer this fruity beverage to guests to add a festive touch to holiday gatherings. It pours up frothy, then separates into a dark pink base with a light foamy top. A slightly tart drink, it's wonderful with home-baked cookies.

"This is the special drink our family enjoys during the holidays. I have left out the heavy whipping cream and it is so good!"
