Yes Way Holidé Cocktails
’Tis the season to be jollé, to indulge in decadent flavors by the fireplace, and get cozy with a classic movie. Combine the joy of all three with our trio of festive Christmas cocktails! Each is infused with delicate Yes Way Rosé Bubbles and inspired by our favorite holiday flicks.
All I Want for Christmas is You, and You, and Youuuuu, Babé! Love is superbly complicated in this seasonal classic that gives you all of the feels, which is why our holiday glass of romance is filled with flavors that are a touch sweet, citrusy, spicy, and sparklé. The red rose petal garnish brings the drama we all know and love in the film. Pro tip: Make a large batch of this in advance of a holiday soirée and simply top with the Bubbles when serving!

An attractive new love interest is just an apartment swap away in The Holidé. This wintery cocktail is what we imagine Kate Winslet, Jack Black, Cameron Diaz, and Jude Law were sipping in the heartwarming finale of this romcom.

4 dashes rhubarb bitters
Ice for serving
Rosemary sprig and orange twist for garnish
