Just in time for the holidays (and the extended family to arrive), we’ve collected a list of our favorite seasonal cocktails from Delish! Instead of popping the champagne this year, mix a chic cocktail to show your guests that you are effortlessly prepared. Don’t have time to think of a drink idea? Don’t worry, each of these drinks has under six ingredients, perfect for last minute hosting!
A modern twist on the traditional mimosa. Skip the orange juice and add cranberry juice to spice up your holiday presentation. Don’t forget: fill the glass ¾’s with vodka and ¼ with cranberry juice!
1 ½ oz of vanilla flavored vodka
1 ½ oz of cranberry juice
1 oz Sparkling wine
Directions: Use a cocktail shaker to combine the vodka and cranberry juice with ice. Shake and pour into a champagne flute and top off with sparkling wine.
With only four ingredients, this martini is easy to entertain guests. The combination of butterscotch and cream soda remind us of Werther’s candies - sweet and savory.
1 ½ oz of vanilla vodka
1 ½ oz of butterscotch schnapps
4 oz of cream soda
2 oz of sprite
Directions: Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
Perhaps our favorite drink to share! Taking a tip from Europe, this drink feels like winter. A hint of spice here, a lot of wine there, and happy guests in-between!
1 bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon
¼ cup of honey
2 cups of apple cider
¼ of Grand Marnier
4 cinnamon sticks
Directions: Combine ingredients in a saucepan and heat on the stove until boiling, then turn to low heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Even if you’re not hosting this year, give these drinks a try. Most of all, don’t forget to indulge in style! Our Gold Floral Lace “Hot Toddy” demitasse or Vintage Shooters are perfect to complement a trendy cocktail. We hope you enjoy!
Wishing everyone a merry holiday season!
