The holidays may not look the same for most of us this year, but we can certainly do our best to make them as normal as possible by holding onto special holiday traditions.

For me, that includes plenty of festive decorations, baking plenty of pumpkin pie and gingerbread cookies, and making favorites like my spatchcock turkey and slow cooker ham.

It’s fun to deviate from tradition a little bit every year, and this year I intend to do that by shaking up my cocktail routine with these festive Vodka Spritzers!

These cocktails would liven up any gathering.
