Pumpkin Spice Martini
A fun, delicious cocktail for your next holiday gathering. A good friend shared this great idea!
Apple Pie Shot
This is a mouthwatering vodka shot that tastes just like Mom's apple pie. Put entire shot in your mouth and swish back and forth a few times before swallowing.
Gluehwein is a German/Austrian winter-holiday drink that most tourists know as an after-ski drink. After you come in out of the snow, it is supposed to make you glow with warmth again. Watch it: Since you drink this wine warm, the alcohol goes to your head extra quick! Drink when you really have come in, and do not have to go out again! This is the one my father used to make for New Year's Eve.
A traditional brunch beverage. Enjoy this light delight on Mother's Day, Christmas, or any special occasion.
Hot Buttered Rum Batter
This is THE batter to use for absolutely delicious and buttery Hot Buttered Rums! You can keep this in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Old-Fashioned Swedish Glogg
My grandfather brought this recipe over from Sweden in 1921. We still use it today. God Jul.
I had this cranberry martini recipe at a holiday party and everyone loved it. The cranberry juice mixes nicely with the liquor. It's a perfect smooth drink.
Old-Fashioned Hot Buttered Rum
This is the real thing, an authentic old-fashioned recipe except you use a slow cooker to simmer it. You will swear you are drinking a cinnamon roll, and then it hits you! Very tasty and a family favorite.
Hot Spiced Christmas Wine
This is a spicy, sweet holiday wine inspired by my trip to Germany, where a similar drink is a traditional part of winter celebrations.
Cozy Mulled Wine
Feel all warm and fuzzy this season with this satisfying treat! Quick and easy too! Ladle into glass or mug, trying not to get the seasonings in it, and drink up!
Swedish Christmas Glogg
Glogg is warm served during the Christmas holidays in Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, as it is sweet, spicy, and warming. This is the adult version of the drink, so don't serve it to the kids! Garnish drinks with raisins and slivered almonds. Serve warm with gingerbread cookies.
Sarah's Frozen Pumpkin Spice Cocktail
I like blended and frozen drinks, so after trying the limited edition Kahlua® pumpkin spice holiday flavor I decided to see what I could come up with. It is delicious! Please use heavy whipping cream. It is available in small pint-sized containers. It is not much, but it adds a necessary creaminess to the drink texture. The pumpkin puree also adds to the pumpkin flavor. Feel free to garnish as desired with additional pumpkin spice, whipped cream, or both. Enjoy!
This drink is made with bourbon and vermouth, but it's not a Manhattan without the cherry.
Fruity Pebbles™ the Drink
My friend, Jane, shared this recipe at our Christmas Bash 2014. It was enjoyed by all. It is very simple to make this recipe as an adult version or a kid-friendly version. Serve over ice. Cheers!
A delicious beverage to keep adults warm and festive for the winter holiday months. Serve warm and keep warm in a slow cooker for a party. This recipe serves 4 but can easily be multiplied. Add more spices and/or sugar as desired.
Vanilla Apple Pie Moonshine
This recipe tastes amazing cold or warmed and the alcohol taste is very minimal. The longer it sits in the jars before you drink it, the better it will taste!
Chef John's Hot Buttered Rum
While eggnog gets a lot more press, hot buttered rum is the ultimate festive holiday drink. So rich, so delicious, so satisfying, and super easy to make.
Gluehwein (German Mulled Wine)
This tasty mulled-wine is a German Christmas specialty. It is the signature drink at Christmas markets across Germany and it warms you from the inside out!
I came up with this while playing around with sangria recipes. It has now become a traditional beverage at Thanksgiving and Christmas; my family actually got upset the one time I didn't make it!
Hot Mulled Wine
This recipe of my grandmother's is always a hit at a get-together, especially on those cold, blustery days. I usually keep it warm in a slow cooker. You can use claret or Burgundy.
Tito's Holiday Thyme
This season, stand under the mistletoe and spend some quality thyme with Tito's. Sip on this tart cocktail topped with the aroma of savory thyme, a bit of a sparkle, and a burst of color. Now…back to that drink.
