The Christmas Gram Cocktail Recipe {#SundaySupper}

This cocktail recipe is a part of the #SundaySupper Movement “Holiday Music/Movie/TV Inspired Recipes” Theme. And of course I went right to my favorite holiday movie Elf, for inspiration.

If you are not familiar with the movie, I HIGHLY recommend watching it. It will become one of your favorites as well, I guarantee it. If you are familiar with it, you may remember the scene where Buddy first meets his dad and sings his version of a Christmas gram. The below recipe is my version. It can be served cold to greet your guests. Or serve it warm at the end of your meal with desert.
