Gift Certificates Make Great Christmas Presents

The holiday season is full of delicious meals, festive treats and decadent desserts. But by New Year’s, most have had their fill of glazed ham and reindeer cookies. This season, experiment with holiday cocktails (adults only)! Though eggnog is a classic winter staple, it’s not the only drink that tastes like Christmas in a cup. Here are 15 holiday cocktail recipes that will make you wish it was December all year long. Cheers!

Beverages perfect for brunch

Jingle Juice 

Jingle Juice, a delicious blend of juices and orange liquor, is the perfect way to start your morning. Fix yourself one in the a.m. and you’ll be jingling all day!

Spiced Caramel Apple Martini

Martinis for breakfast or lunch may seem odd, but this recipe is light enough to accompany any morning or afternoon meal. The combination of lemon juice and apple cider will keep you warm all day.

Blushing Mimosas

Mimosas, full of orange juice and pineapple juice, are a traditional morning drink. This spin adds grenadine, which gives it a perfect holiday glow.

Tasty cocktails for appetizers

Cranberry Ginger Fizz

This is a temptingly sweet, juicy drink that adds a punch to any cocktail hour. It’s great for parties, too!

The Grinch

Don’t let the name fool you; this drink is anything but grinchy. Melon flavored Midori makes a rich green drink with a splash of lemon juice for a sour kick. Garnish it with a cherry or candy cane for a sweet touch.

Candy Cane Lane

A minty blend of peppermint schnapps and grenadine is an ideal pre-dinner cocktail. This drink is named perfectly; properly made, it looks just like a candy cane.

Gourmet dinner drinks

Christmas Jones

The Christmas Jones pairs great with any entrée. A lemon-lime soda turns into a tasty evening beverage with just vodka and fruit. Top with a mint garnish and you have a lovely holiday drink.

Eggnog Martini

A clever spin-off of classic eggnog, this martini adds sugar, cornstarch and a splash of pumpkin-pie spice. Warning: after trying, you’ll never want plain eggnog again.

Christmas Champagne

A perfect solution for Christmas toasts, orange-flavored vodka and a sugar cube turn regular champagne into a delicious holiday cocktail.

Delicious treats for dessert

Godiva Chocolate Martini

Nothing could be more suited for a dessert cocktail than a martini made with Godiva chocolate. This cocktail is the ideal balance of chocolate and vodka without being too heavy. Enjoy!

Cake Batter Martini

Skip the cake and head straight for this martini. Made with Pinnacle whipped cream vodka, crème de cacao and heavy cream, this drink tastes just like a slice of cake. Don’t forget to coat the rim of the glass with frosting and sprinkles!

Kringle Kocoa

Mix hot chocolate and Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka and what do you get? A deliciously rich, chocolate cocktail. Garnish with marshmallows on a skewer and you’ll feel like you’re sitting around a campfire.

Festive shooters for late night fun 

Santa Shooter

A blend of mint and grenadine taste like a candy cane in a shot. Serve your friends these before a night on the town and you’ll be as jolly as Santa Claus himself.

Christmas Tree Jello Shot

Add vodka and bourbon to green Jello and red sugar for a Christmas tree that’s good enough to drink.


A winter wonderland in a shot glass! Mint, white chocolate and a splash of brandy will have you ready to make snow angels in no time.
