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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
