4. Christmas Trees
Ring Finger Tan Line showed up how to make this fun cocktail that’s been dubbed the “Christmas tree.” And it’s so fitting for the season – and quite pretty too. It includes gin, cranberry juice, lime juice, simple syrup, and club soda!
5. Sleigh Ride
This cocktail has one of the most fun names on the list! How do you make this pretty, “sleigh ride” sip? Well, check out Wicked Good Kitchen and follow along. If you love white chocolate, then you’ll definitely want to try it out.
6. Raspberry Cream Mimosa
The Stier Aesthetic whipped up a batch of raspberry cream mimosas and we wanted to dive right in to taste test. These seem like such a fun way to celebrate the holidays and indulge a bit in the season. And don’t forget those fresh raspberries on top.
7. Winter Sangria
Bakeaholic Mama knows that sangria makes everyone a bit happier. So, creating a version fit for wintertime was a must! Celebrate the season with a pitcher of sangria that pays homage to the holidays!
8. Jingle Juice
Baked Bree went with an “adult punch,” and dubbed it “jingle juice.” We love the name and the recipe isn’t mad either. It includes rum, if that twists your arm at all to try!
9. Blackberry Ombre Sparkler
This cocktail is yummy but it’s really quite beautiful too. This ombre creation and its recipe can be found over at The Cookie Rookie. They’re very similar to blackberry mimosas, if that sways you at all!
10. Kahlua Hot Chocolate
Damn Delicious went with a hot sip that’s delicious and seasonally appropriate. It’s dessert-like and can be topped with the same stuff you like on your regular hot chocolate. This is just the “adult” version.
11. Sugar Cookie Martini
Crazy For Crust used sugar cookies as their inspiration behind these martinis. And we love the innovation! The holidays are truly the season of cookies so why not take and turn it into a cocktail?
12. White Christmas
Freud Cake created a white Christmas cocktail that includes a bit of white chocolate and peppermint. We love how pretty the finished look is but it’s just as yummy too. If you want a drink that taste like the holidays, this is it!
13. Chocolate Peppermint Martini
Growing Up Gabel ditched the white chocolate and went all in with some regular chocolate – and we love that too! We especially love that when it’s been paired with peppermint. Hop over now and check out the recipe for this one!
14. Harvest Sparkle
Fed and Fit went with a drink that plays more on the fall flavors than its winter counterparts. And it’s just as delicious, we promise. Including ingredients like whiskey or bourbon, champagne, and rosemary; it’s a winner.
15. White Christmas Mojito
Half Baked Harvest leaves us with this white Christmas mojito that may be our personal favorite on the list. It’s beautiful and perfect for holiday dinner parties because it’s easy to whip up! White and coconut rum, fresh mint, sparkling water and more come together to make the beauty.
