Friends hosted "cocktails for a cause", a fun and enjoyable reminder that this time of year is about a joyful time with wonderful people and giving what you are able to.
I love this warm and convivial evening. Everyone brings something for the family being sponsored, a cocktail, and if they remember, the recipe. The cocktails are placed around the room for people to sample, and are paired with delicious food, prepared by our talented hostess.


Boil 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add the zest of 1 orange and 4 sprigs of sage. Steep for 45 minutes to an hour, and let cool.
In a large pitcher, combine 4 cups of cranberry juice, 1 cup of vodka, 1/4 cup Grand Marnier and the juice of the orange. Strain the sugar-sage mixture and add, stirring to mix.
Let chill and serve.

NOTE: If I was to make this again, I would cut down on the sugar and increase the vodka!
