Are you an aspiring bartender? Why not practice at holiday parties? It’s usually a time where people want to let loose and celebrate the almost end of the year – it’s the perfect time to show off some of your mixing skills.
Or maybe you're an annual host who wants to spice things up. Either way, the go-to drinks are the simple ones – a glass of wine, a cup of eggnog, or even a can of beer. Why not be festive with your cocktails and add a holiday uniqueness to each drink? Take a look at the list we’ve compiled below for some inspiration.
#1. Chocolate Peppermint Stick
Mix white creme de cacao, peppermint schnapps, and cream for a mint chocolate taste.
#2. Butterscotch Bliss
A sweet mixture of Bailey’s Irish Cream, DeKuyper Buttershots liqueur or butterscotch schnapps, Jagermeister or anise-flavored liqueur, Goldschlager cinnamon schnapps, half-and-half, and lemon zest. Coat the rim with raw sugar. Top the drink off with a pinch of cinnamon.
#3. Holiday Party Punch
In a big bowl filled with ice, combine cranberry juice, sparkling cider, ginger ale, lemon juice, vodka, and slice oranges to create this party punch.
#4. Red Hot Santa Tini
A spicy drink filled with chili-pepper infused vodka, Godiva chocolate liqueur, whipped cream and a rim that’s covered in cocoa powder and cayenne pepper.
