On the fifth day of Christmas, Drink Matron gave to me: CROCK POT COCKTAILS!

The crock pot is a beautiful thing. It can make dinner while you’re at work better than you could even imagine. It can steam, boil, broil, saute, and bake practically anything you want. In fact, did you know that it can also make amazing cocktails?

Well, you do now, and I’m here to give you some of the best recipes I could find that will give you plenty of Christmas joy.
