Easy Christmas Cocktail Recipes

Fan-favorite recipes include bubbly champagne cocktails, Moscow mules, White Russians and more that are sure to get you feeling in the festive spirit of the Christmas season!

Christmas Moscow Mule: This festive twist on the classic Moscow mule is sure to put you in the holiday spirit. Simply combine equal parts cranberry juice and vodka with ginger beer and fresh lime juice in a mug filled with ice. Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a few cranberries, and enjoy!

Christmas Sangria: This refreshing festive sangria is perfect for holiday parties because you can make a big batch. Start by combining red wine, brandy, triple sec, and orange juice in a large pitcher. Then add your favorite seasonal fruits—we enjoy tart flavors like cranberries, apples, and pomegranate juice. Let the mixture sit overnight in the fridge so the flavors can meld together, then serve over ice with a sprig of fresh thyme. Cheers!

Eggnog Martini: Eggnog is one of those traditional holiday flavors! This delicious martini is made by shaking together equal parts vanilla vodka, dark rum, eggnog, and cream. Serve your creamy cocktail in a chilled martini glass garnished with freshly grated nutmeg and cinnamon sticks. Yum!

Candy Cane Martini: Sweet, minty, and guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit. This martini with a peppermint twist is made with vodka, white crème de cacao, peppermint schnapps, and cream. Rim a chilled glass with crushed candy canes for a festive touch.
