As we approach Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s, many of us are trying to plan our menus, decorations, outfits and beverages for our family and work holiday parties. While it is easy to set out alcohol, mixers, and plain ice, that isn’t as fun or exciting for you or your guests.
There are many fun and unique recipes for winter beverages and cocktails that will be an exciting new addition to your party. With these winter beverage recipes, you’ll have party guests asking you for the recipe all night long.
Fruit Champagne Cocktail
Champagne alone is a drink that signifies this time of the year. What better way to amp up the cheer of this drink over ice by adding a twist of uniqueness to the bubbles. Make any holiday party toast special by simply adding some pomegranate, cranberry, raspberry, or any frozen fruit to the glass to get a special flavor and a longer lasting coolness to the drink.
Werther’s Hot Toddy
The Hot Toddy is not only a drink that tastes wonderful, but the whiskey and lemon juice involved in this concoction can lead to curing the common cold in many people. Whether you have a sickness you are trying to shake off or you just want to warm up with the taste of cinnamon sticks and traditional Werther’s candies, this is the drink that could make your winter a happy one!
The Dandy Shandy
Take the top favorite dark stout and mix it with ginger ale to make a classic British style cocktail, which will go well with your warm appetizer and dip buffet.
Gingerbread Eggnog White Russian
This drink is sure to satisfy the person who loves the traditional styles of holiday flavors like gingerbread and eggnog. Add in a splash of Kahlua and ginger to pop in some extra spice, and we guarantee that you will be forgetting the old fashioned White Russian in just a few quick sips.
For this delicious beverage, crush mint and sugar at the bottom of a cocktail glass and just add some cocktail ice cubes and your favorite vodka. This drink is very simple, yet always packs a crowd-pleasing punch for people desiring the mint aftertaste of a drink at your holiday party.
Hoppin’ Holiday Jungle Juice
If you want a drink that packs about three to five punches per glass, try out this beast of a drink. Combine two bottles of wine, cranberry juice, ginger ale, Fireball whiskey, and bourbon to kick of this drink. Top it off with frozen cranberries and sliced apples and oranges. Let this drink sit for a few hours over cubed ice and then prepare to have people sleeping on the couches once this drink starts flowing.
Ice Mai Tai Me
No matter if it is served with appetizers, during the meal or throughout the evening, simply blend rum, Cointreau and fruit juice over a few ice cubes, then top it off with a friendly cocktail umbrella.
