12 Days of Christmas Cocktails
Some prefer Christmas cookies, other Christmas snacks, and some, like us, love to kick back with a festive drink (or two). 😉 Here are our 12 favorite cocktails (and mocktails), one for each day of the Christmas countdown.
PSL (pumpkin spiced latte) season is over people! And in comes this spicy orange and cranberry yumminess. It’s super easy to make, and you can choose to serve it as a cocktail or mocktail. Serve with frozen cranberries and a sprig of rosemary to make it look just as festive as it tastes!
Nothing beats hot apple cider, and if you serve it hot, flavored with cinnamon, maple syrup, and cinnamon - you have Christmas in a cup. This recipe is a super easy and tasty way to get in the Christmas spirit.
Perhaps you have had sangria before, but have you ever heard of Christmas sangria?! A perfect example where you take something deliciously good and make it better, and it’s the ultimate party drink if you have friends and family over.
Champagne and Christmas go perfectly together. This five-ingredient drink is not only something a little different in flavors, but it is also perfect throughout the entire festive season and not to forget - heavenly good. You can thank us later.
What’s more Christmassy than eggnog?! Eggnog Julius is not just easy to make; it’s also super creamy, sweet, and delicious. Blend all the ingredients, add whipped cream, and enjoy! With this recipe, it's also so easy to treat both adults and kids to a festive drink; just pick eggnog with or without any alcohol. Cheers!
Pick and choose if you want to make this delicious drink a mocktail or not. Sip on this delicious apple and ginger drink and get in the holiday spirit. Pro-tip; for added festiveness, serve in a martini glass!
Who doesn't love a sparkly, fruity drink? This is a festive twist to a classic drink and our choice to serve and sip on during any holiday event! After all, it’s always champagne o’clock.
Super fresh and super easy - that has the right ring to it, doesn’t it? Sparkling apple cider is a tasty drink that sits just right. If drinks were comfort food - this would make the mark.
Sometimes you just want to make things easy, and this two-step drink is just that. Two ingredients, two seconds(ish), and you have yourself, not only a merry little Christmas but a glass filled with deliciousness.
Eggnog in all its glory can be so much more; why not add toffee?! This yummy cocktail is a creamy sweet treat that we just can’t get enough of. There is nothing better than a warm drink during cold fall- and winter nights. Just pass on the rum if you want to have it every day this holiday season!
A sweet and spicy cocktail that makes you think of mulled wine! This is a perfect drink for any holiday party. A Christmasy spin on a very classic cocktail that we just love!
Last on our list is Christmas dessert in a glass. Treat yourself (a really strong emphasis on the 'treat') with this rich and easy-to-make martini. Garnish with candy canes and post on your Instagram, and spread the word!
There you have it! The kind of Christmas countdown us adults can enjoy! 😉 And don’t forget, if you are looking for more delicious recipes (that aren’t just cocktails), we have just what you need on our holiday Pinterest boards. Check them out and get ready to enjoy some serious holiday cheer (foodie style!).
