I like to kick off every weekend with a Cocktail of the Week recipe, because, well...Fridays are better with cocktails.

Why not ring in 2016 with some of the year's most popular drinks? Here's what you liked most:

    Marshmallow Peeptini

    These sugary little treats can be, well, polarizing...but it would be much harder to turn one down if it's swimming in a tasty adult bev! Find out how to make it HERE.
