I hate eggnog. There. I said it.
I’m sorry if we just became un-friends because of that, but with the holidays upon us, I had to get that off my chest. While I may have to slap the eggnog out of your hand (just kidding, I wouldn’t do that), there are several other drinks I enjoy around the holidays. Since next week is Thanksgiving, what better time than to chat about some of my favorite holiday drinks and even a few new ones that anyone in the family can enjoy!
Ho Ho Ho Punch
This made my first ever Beverage post, but it’s a winner, so I wanted to include it again. It’s so simple too. You just need ginger ale, champagne and frozen strawberries. Perfect for a brunch, party or just having a few friends over.
Why Sangria? Well, I’m part Spanish, so I get to rep my roots with this one. Second, there’s so many ways to make and enjoy Sangria, it’s the perfect drink to make your own . Like this post here (it says for summer, but it works for winter too, like #2 and #3 🙂
Caramel Apple Cider
I’m a fan of apple cider. It’s tasty hot or cold and I can only imagine the tastiness of adding a touch of caramel to it. I definitely plan on trying this fella out. You can find the very simple recipe here.
Y’all. I love mimosas. I was thinking of ways to make them more Christmas-ish and I came across this recipe. Not only would it be just as tasty using cranberry juice instead of orange juice, but they have the rims covered in green sugar. Merry Christmas! You can find the simple recipe here.
Cranberry Lime Spritzer
Sticking with the cranberry theme one more time, this is a non-alcoholic option. I think cranberry and lime would make such a tasty combination. The picture is in the post looks sooo refreshing.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
I love hot chocolate and I like peppermint, so of course I should include a recipe featuring both. Bring on the whip cream.
Well, because it’s champagne and the new year is coming. If you’re looking for one to try, have no fear, I did an entire investigation to find the best one. Just think Europe.
I love the name to this cocktail and it involves Midori. Starts off sour, ends up sweet. You know, like the Grinch. 🙂 Find the easy recipe here.
Alright, that’s what I got! Do y’all have a favorite and family holiday drink?
