Grinch Pinch

This next drink is for all of my Grinches out there! And just like the Grinch, it’s not for everyone.

The combination of flavors, oddly enough, go well together. At least for me. If you’re willing to give this cocktail a try, let me know what you think! Also, make it for your favorite Grinch and maybe their heart will grow 3 times. Enjoy!
