Christmas Countdown: Holiday Cocktails

You probably imbibed a few drinks at holiday parties already — I know I have! Anyhoo, I’m sure you’ll be going to more holiday events in the next few days so I wanted to post four holiday cocktail recipes I found on The Christmas Cosmo recipe sounds delish! I think I might make it this year.

The Golden Yule (by the pitcher)

  • 2 cups of citrus vodka
  • 1 cup thawed frozen apple juice concentrate
  • 1/2 cup of Calvados (apple brandy)
  • 1/4 cup of thawed frozen lemonade

Directions: Shake over ice in a martini shaker. Serve in a martini glass or serve in a cocktail glass over ice.

Christmas Cosmo (per cocktail)

  • One shot of Grand Marnier
  • 2 shots of good quality vodka
  • Splash of cranberry juice (just enough to make it pink)

Christmas Kiss

Directions: In a pitcher pour 1.5 cups of guava nectar. Add one bottle of sparkling rose’. Stir and serve immediately in champagne glasses

Holiday Bliss (by the pitcher)

  • 2 cups of vodka one cup of pomegranate juice
  • 1/4 cup of thawed frozen lime juice concentrate
  • 3 cups of ginger ale

Serve over ice.

If you have a holiday cocktail recipe, please post it! I always love a good drink — especially during the holidays. Side note: You can alter these drinks to include diet juice/soda and Splenda instead of sugar for a healthier holiday drink.

  1. I served up a bunch of Poinsettia cocktails at a holiday party last month, and I’m still thinking about them! Super quick and easy, here’s the recipe:

    1/2 oz. Cointreau or triple sec
    3 oz. cranberry juice

    Chill all of the ingredients beforehand.
    Pour the Cointreau and cranberry juice into a chilled Champagne flute.
    Stir well.
    Top with Champagne.
