Make a delicious holiday cocktail for the winter season and gather the necessary ingredients to stir them up during a holiday party. Enjoy holiday cocktails such as the Peppermint Twist, White Christmas, and Cranberry Snowdrift Martini. Put these delicious treats on the drink menu rather than the dessert menu and give friends and family something sweet to sip on while opening presents.
Make these holiday drink recipes:
- Peppermint Twist: Fill a shaker halfway with ice cubes. Pour 1 ounce of peppermint schnapps, 1 ounce of Kahlua and 1 ounce of brown crème de cacao into the shaker. Shake the mixture and strain it into a cocktail glass. Garnish the drink with a candy cane on the side of the glass.
- White Christmas: Fill a glass with all of the following holiday drink recipe ingredients: 4 ounces of eggnog, ½ ounce of white chocolate liqueur, and 1 ounce of Southern Comfort. Sprinkle the top of the drink with chocolate flakes for a decadent finishing touch.
- Cranberry Snowdrift Martini: Put ice in a cocktail mixer and combine 1 ounce of white cranberry cocktail juice, 1 ounce of white crème de cacao and ½ ounce of white chocolate liqueur. Shake the mixture and strain it into a martini glass. Wet the rim with water and dip in sugar. Pierce cranberries on a cocktail toothpick and place in the glass as a garnish. Add sprinkles of shaved white chocolate to the top of the drink.
