Now These Are What You Call Quarantine Cocktails

1 or 2 of these are guaranteed to make you feel happy that you are confined to your home.

The time has come where we are back to our old ways of staying indoors and having a cocktail party of 1, 2, 3 or 4 because 1. It's way cheaper and 2. We can't go to the bar and have someone make it for us. That being said, totally tune into my Instagram --> @thebeautiesincolor THIS SATURDAY to join myself and my girlfriends make some of these cocktails and a few more.

Sangria
This is by far the easiest recipe that I remember when I was a waitress. It's fruity, contains as much alcohol content as the bottle of wine says and it's very light and refreshing.

Green and Gold Martini
This martini I created 4 years ago is fruity, highly concentrated with alcohol yet so smooth tasting that you would not realize how intoxicated you have become. No judgment. You definitely want to drink this from a martini glasses because it's hella cute and worth an IG story or TikTok.
