Its holiday party season and that means contributing to gatherings, either as a guest or host!
One of my favorite ways to join pot lucks or show up to a party is with a big-batch cocktail. They are also great for intimate parties that you want to add a signature spin to the menu.
Here are some of my favorite options for winter cocktails:
If you are a previous client of mine, you should have gotten an apple juice with a cocktail recipe for Thanksgiving!
That recipe is GREAT for an easy, refreshing but cold weather cocktail
I also love this simple recipe because you could easily switch liquors. Rum and apple or tequila and apple (with a little agave, of course) would work well too!
Mulled Wine, aka Gluhwein
This is a simple, smells-great way to make your home feel like the holidays
Basically mulled wine, but with more nuts and more alcohol!
I love this take on a Pimms with a super easy batch version!
I love this unique take on a Christmas bowl. I personally love palomas, so dressing it up for the holiday is going to be a definite try for our family!
P.s. If adding the cranberry puree isn't your favorite, just dressing up the bowl with cranberries is holiday enough!
I love this list if you are really looking to make something signature. Most of the above cocktails use standard, easy-to-get liquors and wines. But if you are looking to branch out, these are some amazing batch cocktails to stand out from the crowd!
