Spice Up Your Holidays....

Everyone knows that along with the chilly temps, the falling leaves and the turkey, comes holiday stress: family, large amounts of cooking, meal planning, hostess duties and travel.

You could solve it with yoga. Maybe meditate a little or inhale some weird calming incense to deal with the frustration that can accompany the Thanksgiving holiday.

Or. You could mix yourself up quite the yummy little seasonal cocktail, stop worrying about whether your jewel-toned napkin holders match appropriately to the perfectly coifed linen napkins and tell Martha Stewart to shove it.

1/2 oz. Kahlua
