2021 Advent Playlist & Cocktails

Another December is upon us, which means it’s time for the Advent Playlist. This year I was challenged to up the stakes with an Advent Cocktail List as well, so each day until Christmas I’ll be sharing one song and one drink recipe.

If you need something to tide you over, you can checkout the last 11 years of playlists: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, & 2020.
