Red Snapper Cocktail

Renée G.


We usually host a breakfast/brunch on New Year’s morning. I like to just mix up a pitcher (or two) of these the night before and set out one pitcher at a time on the buffet table along with the glasses, straws, cocktail toothpicks and an array of garnishes for each guest to take whatever appeals to them.
