‘Tis the Season for family, friends and cocktails. One way to spice up your entertaining is to offer traditional [and some not so traditional] holiday drinks to your crowd. Not too much, we do not want any dancing on tables! -at least not until New Year’s-

It’s Cold Outside

When the temperature drops and you want to warm up from the inside-out, these tried-and-true holiday favorites never go out of style.

Eggnog – Cream, eggs, brandy. What more is there to love?

Glühwein – Warm up a Côtes-du-rhône with spices and a splash of amaretto.

Hot Toddy – Made with whiskey instead of scotch…to die for.

Irish Coffee – You cannot stop at just one.

Hot Buttered Rum – A tradition carried over from colonial days.

Glittering Cocktails

There is a reason you have a glass for every type of cocktail. Dust off your crystal-ware and put the Queen to shame.

Peppermint Patty Twist – For the candy lover.

Winter Solstice CocktailSay goodbye to those dark winter nights.

Gingerbread Apple CocktailSure to stir the spirit.
