Bookmark this post now so you won’t lose it. I’ve collected seven wonderful holiday cocktails for you this week. There is a little something for everyone here from traditional to update playful drinks. I am not sure when I am having guests during the holidays but I am going to stock up on supplies to whip up some of these drinks whenever someone stops by to have a glass of cheer!

I fell in love with this just by the festive red and green color. The sugared rim is optional but I think a wonderful Christmas twist that you should include. Heather from Who Needs a Cape shares this simple, yet elegant, cocktail for the holidays.
Do you have a Grinch in your family? Maybe if you make them this lovely green martini it will make their heart grow and get in the joy of the season. Adrianne of Happy Hour Projects has the recipe for this colorful cocktail.
So this cocktail starts with prepared hot chocolate, but then you cool it down to add to the rest of the ingredients. Don’t worry, it will still warm you up according to Tracey of The Kitchen is My Playground.
Having a winter party? This recipe is made in the slow cooker and sure to warm up your guests. Sue from The View From Great Island shares this aromatic drink recipe.
Do you love the traditional eggnog of the holiday season but want to make it fresh instead of buying it in a carton? Ann of Ann’s Entitled Life says this is the best eggnog you will ever have. I may have to make some of this for Hubby who is an eggnog fan.
Another fun recipe from Heather of Who Needs a Cape – I’m going to her house! This is an icy drink which is great when the house warms up from all those guests or for those of you celebrating the holidays it hot climates. I love the garnish of pretzels and cherry as antlers and a Rudolph red nose!
This sounds like a wonderful after-dinner cocktail to me since it has crème de menthe in it. Ann from Ann’s Entitled Life says it is great to sip on sitting by a warm and toasty fire.
