ManBQue Holiday Cocktails

By Adam Palmer

It’s time for the holidays and you know what that means: Dad’s drinking Old Style and complaining about the Cubs AND the Bears, Mom is telling you she’s just going to have one martini tonight (it’s straight vodka) and you’re probably hoping they hid the good scotch somewhere.


Let’s make the holidays easier on everyone! This year, ManBQue has put together a list of easy-to-make Holiday Cocktails that will definitely help you get through any awkward family conversations… minus the one about your companion pillow.
