Christmas is less than a week away! We're nearing the end of the holidays, and unfortunately, we've reached the end of our holiday recipe series. Wrena's done a fantastic job bringing you delicious meal ideas for your holiday dinners. From entrees and appetizers to side dishes and desserts, our final recipe is a delightful holiday drink using the beautiful Zwilling Sorrento Glass Mugs and Cocoa Amore Gourmet Cocoa Mix.
