When you want to go from the nice to the naughty list, this elegant cocktail will surely help you get there. From the earliest times mistletoe has been one of the most magical, mysterious, and sacred plants of European folklore. It was considered to bestow life and fertility because it is an aphrodisiac. At Christmas time a young lady standing under a ball of mistletoe, brightly trimmed with evergreens, ribbons, and ornaments, cannot refuse to be kissed. If the girl remained unkissed, she cannot expect to marry the following year. Whether we believe it or not, it always makes for fun and frolic at Christmas celebrations. This is a perfect cocktail for two and creating some holiday magic for you and your true love. Cheers.
