Mariah Carey has been in heavy rotation for the past several weeks, meaning that Christmas is just around the corner! You can stay warm as the holiday rapidly approaches with this delightful Christmas cocktail recipe from the blog 'Ring Finger Tan Line.'

The Christmas Tree Cocktail, as it's named, doesn't exactly taste like a forest of pine, but with ingredients like gin and mint leaves, it definitely has a flavor that's "of the earth," if you know what I mean.

In addition to the gin and mint, this festive beverage features pomegranate juice (which can be swapped with cranberry if you can't find any), simple syrup and lime juice, all of which add a refreshing fruity kick to an otherwise earthy concoction. For a garnish, add a few pomegranate seeds atop a wheel of lime and place on your cocktail.
