Everyone loves a colorful cocktail to sip on – especially during fun festivities and holiday parties. So, for your next holiday planning guide, don’t forget to add the punch, fizzes, and spritzers to your essential food and drink checklist.
Below you will find the five most festive cocktails to share with friends and loved ones this holly jolly season. Let’s get into the holiday spirit and make some Christmas cocktails!
Sangria is a summertime favorite, but who’s to stop us from enjoying this delightful beverage during the colder winter months?
Grab your cutest mason jar glass and fill it will all the essentials: red wine, orange juice (you can even swap it out with a fun cran-apple juice!), cinnamon, apple slices, pomegranate, and more. Garnish with a small twig of rosemary to give it a holiday feel.
The best part about Sangria is that you can make it, shake it, and mix it the way you like!
The most classic of them all. Make this a super merry mimosa by combining two of everyone’s favorites: champagne and orange juice!
Give this merry mimosa an extra kick and sweeten the rim with sugar or raspberries to add both color and flavor to your concoction!
Peppermint Pomegranate Prosecco
Make this fizzy, syrupy drink in no time and with ease! Your guests will love the ruby rose color and the sweet scent of fresh peppermint adorning your glass.
Make this Christmas cocktail with a rim of crushed peppermint candy canes and sprig of rosemary bobbing in your glass.
To make: Boil pomegranate juice with a herby rosemary twig until the juice turns syrupy. Add a spoon (or two) of pomegranate syrup and top up with 3-4 spoons of prosecco.
White Christmas Cocktail
Yearning for a white Christmas this year? Well you can have it with this fancy white Christmas cocktail! It’s one of the simplest cocktails to make, but you’ll have your guests chasing you after the recipe until next Christmas season.
Simply mix vanilla vodka with coconut cream and sprinkle in some nutmeg. Serve in mini milk glasses or mason jars and serve with a chocolate-enrobed wafer straw! Santa himself will be coming early this year for this glass of milk and cookies!
Jingle Juice Rock
Serve up this delightful Christmas cocktail while Jingle Bells plays joyously in the background. It’s a definite crowd-pleaser!
Gather all your favorite citrusy fruits. I recommend grabbing mango, orange, lemon, and pineapple! Add to each glass one-part vodka (or alternatively one-part rum) to one-part Triple Sec.
Add your sweetened fruit juices and nectars with frozen cherries (to serve as fun and tasty ice cubes). Tip: Add a dash of grenadine to play with the colors. Don’t forget to serve with a fruity candy cane!
After these 5 festive Christmas cocktails, you’re sure to be prepared for the next holiday party! Which one of these cocktails caught your attention the most? The winter sangria sparked my interest, but I sure do love a white Christmas!
