Who said it has to be sunny and warm to indulge in a margarita? Sip on this recipe from our Cocktail Experts, Tracey Toomey and Leanne Shear. We guarantee you'll be surprised how tasty and appropriate you'll find its flavors to be for your holiday party.
Just as we enjoy a winterized margarita, we love to sip on a winter sangria, too. This savory sip is the ultimate Christmas party drink complete with fresh holiday fruit flavors and subtle cinnamon taste.
Eggnog with Christmas Cookie Ornament
Holiday parties without eggnog just aren't holiday parties! Instead of the traditional sprinkle of nutmeg on eggnog, try chocolate curls on top and a cookie ornament garnish on the side like Jeanne Benedict suggests.
Jolly Christmas Cocktail
A bright red, lime green rimmed cocktail is one sip we won't say no to around the holidays. This Jolly Rancher infused drink is a favorite of ours and both the sweet flavors and bright festive colors make it a fun sip that's perfect for the Christmas season.
For the wine lovers on your guest list there's no better choice than a classic mulled wine. This recipe is simple to make thanks to the slow-cooker process, which also makes for an instantly festive aroma that will fill the house.
Cranberry Mint Cooler
This Christmas cocktail brings you back to basics, but the addition of a cranberry mint wreath ice cube adds that festive flair anyone will appreciate this holiday season.
