Amy Morton, owner of "The Barn Steakhouse", "Found Kitchen & Social House" and "Stop Island Social" joined ABC7 Friday morning.
Cocktails go hand in hand with New Year's Celebration, but then the trend in January is to go alcohol free. Morton shared two recipes for a cocktail and a mocktail.

COCKTAIL: The Babbler
1.5 ounces Gin
1.5 ounces St. Germain or St. Elder
