It’s the Christmas season again and with that comes parties and get togethers with the family. One thing that I’ve always had at our get togethers is a nice variety of Christmas cocktails for the adults. A nice home made eggnog is always welcome in our house and everyone seems to love it.
I went ahead and compiled a post with some of the best Christmas cocktails available on Pinterest. Give some of these cocktail recipes a try at your holiday party this year and you’ll be a big hit!

The Lit Reindeer
All you do is take vodka (or cranberry vodka), cranberry sauce, lime juice, simple syrup (optional) and a rosemary sprig to a cocktail shaker. Give it a hard shake for about a minute since you are working with a thicker liquid with the sauce. Then pour on ice or leave it martini style. It’s strong like a martini but that’s why it’s LIT! That’s it! Can you get any easier or tastier?

Deck the halls, it’s time to get Merry Merry with a Pomegranate Paloma cocktail!
A “paloma” if you are unfamiliar with it, is a grapefruit version of a margarita, with lime juice, tequila, and a salt-rimmed glass. (It’s also Spanish for “dove”, which is neither here nor there when it comes to the drink.)

The Mistletoe Kiss
One of my favorite drinks to this day is a simple vodka-cranberry and those bellinis were pretty similar. Except that instead of the bite of vodka, you get a bubbly mouthful of champagne. Mmmmm!
And while we’re on the topic of vodka, let me tell you that I probably will never turn down a drink with vodka in it. I don’t drink vodka often – gin is my actual preference when it comes to spirits – but I love vodka because it’s sort of like the blank palate of the drink world.

Christmas Morning Mimosas
I have a ridiculously, embarrassingly easy recipe for you today, but it brings me so much joy that I couldn’t NOT share it! If you’ve been following along with my 12 days of Christmas videos, you probably know that last year, I shot this recipe at the last minute and the photos were a mess. It wasn’t something that I could reshoot and I was just… DONE with 2015 at that point, so I figured that I’d wait a year and see if I still was into the drink.

This time of year my halls are decked and I am ready to have friends and family over for a Christmas party. Each year we get together and have a yankee swap along with some great apps and desserts but most importantly cocktails! I always try to make a signature cocktail for the evening. Last year I made spiked Wassail. This year I thought why not try to make a Christmas margarita.

Peppermint Bailey’s Christmas Cocktail
I’m not too sure how we started making this drink to be honest, but we’ve been making it for years. I want to say that it stems back to my friend, Jenn’s Christmas Party, but I know the Christmas Cocktail we were making that night had more than just two types of alcohol in it. That’s just how we roll. Can you say LUSHES?!
So, I started making this drink for anything Christmassy related. I even brought my trusty Christmas Cocktail to my Aunt Diane’s house on Christmas and there was not one drop left in those bottles after the first hour (ya heard me right!).

Eggnog Amaretto Cocktail
The holiday season has arrived, and I couldn’t be happier. Some of my very favorite flavors come together so wonderfully during this time of the year.
There’s nothing like the comforting smells and tastes of the holiday season. Everything from peppermint, cinnamon, to nutmeg and ginger. I adore them all!

A Winter Snowflake
Wonderfully sweet, deliciously creamy and perfectly festive, a Winter Snowflake is the ideal Christmas cocktail for keeping out the winter chillies and getting into the spirit of the season. Keep it simple and make the basic version or go all out and top it with light-as-air whipped cream and beautifully-smelling cinnamon. Go on, it’s Christmas and you deserve it!

Peppermint White Russians
I must admit that up until recently I wasn’t a big fan of peppermint. As a kid, I didn’t care for it at all. Over the past couple of years, however, I’ve come to love the cool, minty, sweet flavor. It’s been fun adding it to things like cocktails, desserts, and even hot cocoa.
The recipe for a White Russian is straightforward. The classic version is made with 2 parts vodka, 1 part Kaluha (coffee liqueur), and 1 part half and half.
