To kick off the weekend, here's a delicious cocktail inspired by the traditional southern side dish known as ambrosia. Are there any ambrosia lovers out there? Ambrosia is a traditional and simple southern side dish consisting of oranges and fresh coconut. Some may "dress up" their ambrosia with pineapple, marshmallow or cherries but it's really just a matter of personal preference. I've never met an ambrosia I didn't like and couldn't resist blending these flavors into a Christmas cocktail that's both sweet and southern.
Cheers to the Weekend!
