Savage Cocktail Recipes for Your Holiday Parties

If you're hosting a holiday party where a bar will be present, you'll definitely want to have the basics on hand so that you can make the most commonly ordered drinks. It's always fun to have a few special drinks to serve at your holiday party available also to add something unique to the celebration. 

Simply having Savage Scorpions available as a creative cocktail garnish or a savagely unique shot ingredient is one way to get creative with your beverage station. They pair perfectly with any type of alcohol, and as a matter of fact, they're even great for adding that "something extra" to the food you are serving! 

Here are a few ideas for some signature cocktails you might want to serve your party guests over the holidays. Just add a Savage Scorpion to the ingredient list of each one and you're all set!
