Here's where we tell you how to find the recipe for Good Tidings, the tales we told, and the podcasts we mentioned!

The Booze:

• 1.5 oz vodka
• 1 oz Cointreau
• 1 oz lemon juice
• 1 oz cranberry juice
• 1 bar spoon of allspice dram (basically an allspice liqueur, originally from Jamaica. It can be hard to find, so a DIY recipe is below)


Shake ingredients with ice. Strain into a Collins glass over ice and top with soda. Garnish with a lemon wheel studded with cloves.
