For some extra holiday fun try these two cocktails. The Stone Wall is the perfect holiday drink and combines rum, apple cider and ginger beer for a good fall taste. Secondly Tommy Gun, referencing the machine gun used by mobsters in the 20s. This drink gives you a little late night kick with its touch of ginger, some lemon, and some hearty Irish Whiskey to go along with it. Both of these cocktails have ingredients that can be purchased at The Bottle Shop or Geneva Liquors in Lake Geneva.

The season of giving has arrived and nothing makes you warm inside (besides hot chocolate, of course!) more than the face of someone you care about receiving the perfect gift from you. Buying gifts can be an overwhelming process especially during the hustle and bustle that the holiday season brings with it, so here are a couple of gift ideas and trends to help you out.
Fall in love with Fall fashion! There are some trends you should try to change up this season. Picking the right layers is essential to staying warm for Fall in Wisconsin. There is no end to the possibilities of outfits with jackets. Different jackets help you dress up or down an outfit. If you want to go for a casual look try a jean jacket with a simple t-shirt, leggings and comfortable shoes. This is the perfect outfit for grabbing coffee with friends or going to class. Leather and bomber jackets can dress up any outfit. With different colors and patterns you can turn an ordinary outfit into a statement by making it the centerpiece.
Now if you’re crafty and looking for a new DIY try making your own distressed or ripped jeans. You can even add some embroidered patches to it, there are some great ones on Amazon. It is all about making it your own and expressing yourself. Here is a link that The Everygirl posted for step by step instructions on how to make your own pair: http://theeverygirl.com/diy-distressed-boyfriend-jeans/
My favorite thing about fall is the boots! There are ankle boots and knee high ones. They are a key part to any outfit. The best part is that they are functional and cute. If you need an extra layer of warmth add some long socks to peek out over your boots. There is a great selection of boots at Zappos.
It’s the little details that count, instead of wearing your scarf the same way everyday mix it up! Instyle shows a how to tutorial on different ways to tie a scarf. I never thought there were that many ways to tie a scarf. http://www.instyle.com/how-tos/how-to-tie-scarf-gifs
