Best Festive Drinks for the Holiday

How can you make sure the holidays are merry for you and your guests? Be prepared with the ingredients for some great holiday cocktails! Before your guests arrive to celebrate, stop by your local liquor store to purchase the ingredients for these wintertime favorites:

Spiced Eggnog

Whether made with store-bought or homemade eggnog, this cocktail is sure to be a hit this holiday season. Eggnog goes well with a variety of spirits, and this recipe combines equal parts spiced rum and coffee liqueur, plus a touch of bourbon. Vanilla extract, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg give this cocktail a sweet and spicy finish that’s perfect for the holiday season.

Cranberry Champagne Cocktail

If you want to enjoy your holidays with a little bubbly, consider serving a cranberry champagne cocktail. Cranberry juice cocktail, chilled champagne, and Cointreau are combined and then poured into champagne glasses with whole cranberries inside.

Winter Sangria

Who says that sangria is a summer-only drink? With a few modifications, this cocktail is perfect for the holidays. Combine a bottle of red wine—a sweet red wine is best for this recipe—with sparkling cranberry-apple cider. Next, add peeled, sliced oranges and apple slices, along with some halved cranberries. Apple slices, orange peels, and rosemary sprigs all make fun and festive garnishes for this drink.

Spicy Bloody Mary

Do you want a cocktail with festive colors that’s suitable to serve at any hour? A Bloody Mary is the perfect option! This spicy cocktail adds a kick to any holiday celebration by combining tomato juice with ground pepper, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and a paprika spice mix. Lime juice and vodka are the final ingredients, and a celery stick or jalapeno garnish is the perfect finishing touch for this red and green cocktail.
