It’s December! Me, oh my, how is that even real? I feel like I come here every month and talk about how quickly time is flying, but it’s true!

It seems like just the other day I was planning the second (and, for now, last) Bright Blog Bash with my friend Katie, making Christmas cookies with my mom and ringing in the new year with my Charlotte friends. Somehow, 11 months have passed since then. But they’ve been good ones.

So here we are, at the best time of year, which is the best because it’s filled with cookies and cocktails. My two favorite things! (Not really.)

(But also, really.)

There will be cookies, I promise, but for now let’s talk about one of those cocktails. The Maple Manhattan is my new favorite whiskey drink this year.

Rye whiskey partners with dry vermouth, sugary maple syrup and a cocktail cherry to bring you this strong, smooth and slightly sweet drink. You’ll love sipping it solo on a chilly night at home binging ‘Gilmore Girls’ or serving it to your friends at your holiday party.

For the Maple Manhattan, I used TINCUP Colorado Whiskey courtesy my friends at Drizly. Depending on where you live, Drizly will deliver wine, beer and spirits to you — right to your door within an hour! Amazing.

This is a take on a robust — and traditionally considered more masculine — drink that the ladies will enjoy.

However, I don’t give into the stigma that is ‘girly drinks’ and ‘manly drinks.’ They’re just drinks, people! Enjoy them and stop worrying about what people will think of you if you drink whiskey or a frozen margarita! Just do you. Time will pass regardless of how much fun you’re having, so better make the most of it, I say! Cheers to that! // susannah
