How inviting is this cute cocktail?

I like to ring in the new year with a little fun and a very cute cocktail…and this one fits my criteria!

I kept a little of the crushed ice in the drink as I like it nice and chilly!

For more cocktail inspo…I do have a cute cocktail guide on my site for $3.

To start the year off right, I decided to also do a little give-a-way.

I co-authored the 21 Day Tummy Cookbook–and it is full of many amazing low FODMAP recipes!

For a chance to win this great book, please leave a comment and share your favorite tip on how you add balance to your life. What brings you a little zen and peace?

For me, I find balance in quality time with my kids, a walk with my crazy yet sweet lab Lucy, a glass of red wine and talking with my great husband, Russ or a good run.  OH…and I do love baking too!
