Festive Holiday Cocktails With the Vancouver Mom Team


This holiday season our Vancouver Mom team gathered on Zoom for festive holiday cocktails and a competitive game of family feud. We split the teams up so that it was newbies against veterans. The newbies won and received a $100 donation to a family charity of their choice-they chose Backpack Buddies.

Every team member submitted a festive cocktail, and there is currently a challenge taking place on Instagram to determine the winner. We’ll leave it to you to decide who wins this festive holiday cocktail challenge. The six contenders are below.
