Tis the season for festive fun and delicious cocktails. With all the holiday parties to attend – and host – we were in search of a few drink options that were better for our bodies but didn’t compromise flavor. Cue our friends at Juice Served Here – a modern cold-pressed juice company based in Los Angeles. They whipped up three healthy holiday cocktails recipes that contain all of the good cheer and none of the guilt. We’ll toast to that.
