Holiday Drink Recipes

No matter what you celebrate during the holidays, the late autumn and early winter months are a time for love, family, gratitude, and festivities. Of course, they’re also a time for indulging. After all, ‘tis the season to be jolly (fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-liquor).

Whether you’re hosting a party or staying in on a frigid evening, there are plenty of ways to make sure your cup runneth over. Start with one of the following recipes: 

Mai Tai Holiday Cocktail

Even if you’re stuck in a blizzard, you can pretend you’re somewhere tropical with this holiday Mai Tai. The recipe closely resembles the traditional cocktail, but with some celebratory variations. It’s simple to make and only requires four ingredients: pineapple juice, orange juice, dark rum, and amaretto.

Grinch Cocktail

The Grinch might have tried to steal Christmas, but he’s making up for it with this luscious libation. Merging Whoville with Boozeville, this cocktail is made with rum, melon liqueur, and lemon-lime soda. The end result is a bright green drink that’s zesty, light, and goes down easily. In other words, use caution if you’re consuming it at your office party.

Adult Hot Chocolate

Adult hot chocolate combines the memories of childhood with the privileges of adulthood. Made with Irish cream, bourbon, and Frangelico (an herb-flavored liqueur), it’s the perfect concoction for a snowy winter’s night and a date with Hulu.

Holiday Punch

This holiday punch is a vibrant and delicious way to celebrate the season. It requires almost no effort to make and is packed with fruity, festive flavors. The only ingredients required are cranberry juice, orange juice, sparkling apple cider, ginger ale, and vodka. 

Eggnog Smoothie

If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic drink or starting your New Year’s health resolution a little early, this eggnog smoothie is packed with protein. All it requires is a quick blend of kefir or yogurt, maple syrup, bananas, coconut oil, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Try it before you head out the door to go dashing through the snow. 

Whether you’re looking for something sweet, something sour, or something strong enough to turn your holidays into a holidaze, you can find a recipe that hits the spot. Cheers to the season one sip at a time.
