the drunk uncle cocktail

I was testing out christmas cocktails and decided the only appropriate name for whatever one I ended up using had to be the drunk uncle. Inspired by drunk uncle from SNL because that’s exactly who I felt like when the recipe development was all said and done! This christmas cocktail is delicious but please consume safely so you don’t embarrass yourself or harm others.
