Not everyone is a fan of eggnog, but the bourbon in this cocktail may change their minds. You can serve it in a punch bowl, which makes it easy to distribute drinks to guests at large parties.

Cranberry Martini

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a cranberry flavoured drink. Martinis are an easy crowd-pleaser and the cranberry juice makes it perfect for Christmas-time. Garnish with cranberries and a twist of lime for extra tang.

Champagne Cocktail

It’s not the holidays without a glass of champagne. This champagne cocktail is easy to make with bitters, a sugar cube, and a lemon twist but it will make a big impression. Save this recipe to ring the New Year in in style, rather than just a drab glass of plain champagne.
