to balance out the ugly sweater parties, we needed a tasteful holiday drink. in walked elder-wise, the elderflower edelweiss. this combination of delicate liqueur, gin and bubbles gives you superpowers in that next round of white elephant. fix yourself a glass, take a bite of that too-sweet-cookie and listen to some sound of music [the original, not the american idol vampire version]. blossom of snow may you bloom and grow, bloom and grow forever.
