I am going to admit – I am kind of geeked up for the Olympics this year. I’m not sure why – maybe it’s all the reports of the craziness coming from Sochi. Here are three fabulous Olympic Inspired cocktails that are perfect for watching the games, or just to warm up on a cold winter day! They’re great for after a day on the slopes or just playing in the yard in the snow. Remember, 21 & over only, please.
