‘Tis the season for all the delicious food, desserts and alcoholic beverages. To be honest, I’ve been feeling festive and getting in the holiday spirit, so I’m excited to start sharing some tasty treats you can whip up for all your holiday parties now through New Year’s Eve! Wether you’re looking for a drink to make on a cozy night in with friends watching holiday movies, or you’re celebrating the festivities with your entire family, I’m sure there is a drink recipe you’ll fall in love with on this list!

1| Cranberry Mule

I’m all about the cranberry-flavored drinks during the holiday season, so when I’m searching Pinterest and I’m looking to make an fun, festive drink—mules are the first drink that pop into my head. You can enjoy this refreshing, seasonal drink after Thanksgiving, or during a work holiday party.

2| Blackberry Ombre Sparkler 

Sometimes, I find myself interested in a drink recipe simply because of how gorgeous and Instagram-worthy that drink looks. I know, call me basic, but there’s nothing wrong with wanting to create a fun drink that’s also stunning. All you’ll need are some blackberries, champagne, sugar, rosemary, and water to make this cocktail!

3| Vanilla Cranberry Mimosa 

Is it REALLY the holiday season if you’re not making mimosas regularly? To me, these are a staple for Sunday brunch during the holidays. I love the additional of the vanilla vodka; and if you’re not into cranberry juice, you can swap it out for orange juice or another juice you enjoy.

4| Christmas Day Punch

If you need a large serving of punch that will taste good to a variety of people, you definitely want to try this recipe. The different fruits, and the mix of vodka and prosecco all create a perfect combination of deliciousness and festiveness on Christmas Day. Trust me, you’re going to want to save this recipe!

5| Boozy Mint Mocha Coffee 

 

Where are my coffee lovers at? Who says that ALL drinks have to be cold cocktails. TBH, I’ll be making this a ton over the next two months because I have a lot of friends that would enjoy this recipe. It’s perfect for a night in watching Hallmark holiday movies. Part hot chocolate, part coffee and a little bit of peppermint schnapps? Yes, please!

6| North Pole Cocktail

For the people who love their Kahlua during the holidays, here is an amazing holiday drink recipe for you. This drink is the ultimate “Drink Goals” for a night with friends. I will say that it’s definitely a heavy drink, so if that isn’t your style—I wouldn’t recommend this. TBH I’m looking to make it simply for the photos.

7| Christmas Sangria

The tried and true drink recipe that has always remained a favorite. Wether you’re enjoying this with the entire family, or treating yourself to a fun, festive mix—sangria has never failed us during the holidays. If you’re looking for a crowd pleasure to bring to your next gathering, consider this being your first pick! It won’t disappoint.

8| Spiced Winter Mojito 

Mojitos in November and December? Yes, please! If you’re looking for a new recipe that you probably haven’t tried yet, make this the one cocktail you try this holiday season. A little bit of rum have never hurt anyone, and you can rest easily knowing this will be loved by the guys and gals at your holiday festivities!
