Who doesn’t love to indulge in a holiday cocktail? Today we’ve rounded up the best recipes in a collection for you to try and test over the next few weeks- cheers!
Cranberry Gin Fizz
This one takes a while, but trust us, it’s worth the work! You first make a Cranberry syrup (full instructions and cocktail recipe here) then combine it with gin, fresh lemon juice, elderflower liquor, and ice. Strain and top with club soda, plus a garnish of fresh cranberries and a sprig of thyme. Delicious!
Sparkling Charleston Cosmopolitan
A “Southern” cosmopolitan combining peach, orange, and cranberry flavors, perfect for the festive season! Full Southern Living recipe available here.
Blood Orange Spritz
“Your favorite summer refresher gets a wintery twist with a splash of blood orange juice” by Good Housekeeping. Sounds good to us! Recipe and instructions here.
Lauren Conrad’s Ginger Bee Sting
This one does take a little time in the form of blending, straining and whisking the ginger, honey, lemon juice, cayenne and salt. But once you pour it over the Scotch? The best.
One of the simplest ways to please guests this season- a Rosemary Collins, recipe by Southern Living. Just mix gin, Simple Syrup, lemon juice, and ice in a shaker, then pour over ice, top with club soda and garnish with rosemary. Done!
“…this might be our most over-the-top, indulgent spiked hot cocoa recipe—ever.” We’re down for that. Check out this sweet delight, which includes hot chocolate, Bailey’s, and ice cream, over on Delish.
Rudolph’s Tipsy Spritzer
A super easy, and refreshing, option that simply combines all ingredients and is served over ice! This one includes orange juice, lemon-lime soft drink, maraschino cherry juice, fresh lemon juice, and vodka. Minus the vodka for an alcohol-free option. Check out this Southern Living recipe here.
