Gluten Free Arctic Cocktail

Arctic Sunset Cocktail Recipe

There are times in life worthy of celebrating that pretty much everyone will agree upon; the birth of a child, weddings, milestone moments, anniversaries, and such.

But life can be filled with everyday moments to celebrate if you look for them – the first sunny day after a week of stormy weather, finding a ten dollar bill in the pocket of your jeans you didn’t know was there, your husband putting his socks in the dirty clothes hamper for the first time (I don’t actually have experience with that last one but a girl can hope!)

When I see a butterfly flitting around a pretty flower it reminds me that the world is filled with simple beauty and that is certainly cause for celebration.

When I hear a child laugh out loud over the silliest thing, it reminds me that joy can be had free of charge and that we can create joy just as easily as we can create discontent. Creating joy is definitely worthy of celebration.

Sometimes just getting through the day and being able to cross things off your to-do list is worth celebrating!

I hope you find much to celebrate and if you decide you would like to celebrate with a cocktail, I have one for you – an Arctic Sunset; it’s pristine and pretty and the perfect addition to any celebration.

(I used pink, natural maraschino cherries in my cocktail but the traditional red cherries are just as pretty.)
