Delicious Winter Cocktails

If you thought summer had the cocktail game on lock, think again—it’s winter’s time to shine. From seasonal flavors to warm and cozy hot drinks to Christmas-themed cocktails, these cold-weather drinks will get everyone feeling festive.

If you’re a hot drink-only type of person in the wintertime, no worries, check out these warming, ultra-cozy cocktails. The classic Hot Toddy, mulled wine and RumChata hot cocoa are the boozy drinks you need to warm up when cold weather strikes. Looking to get festive? Peppermint bark mimosas, sugar cookie martinis, and jingle juice are sure to put everyone in the Christmas spirit. Even the meanest of Grinches won’t be able to resist cheering a boozy Grinch punch; however, these winter cocktails go way beyond Christmas! These drinks were made to be enjoyed all season long—with classic cocktails and winter flavors like cranberry (cranberry mimosas or cranberry orange whiskey sour, anyone?), warming gingerbread, and decadent caramel, these boozy bevs go way beyond Christmas day.

Planning a holiday party? Many of these drinks are a breeze when it comes to entertaining. From crowd-pleasing holiday punches to big-batch drinks, these cocktails are easy, delicious, and a fabulously festive way to celebrate at your next party

Mulled Wine

Making this mulled wine couldn’t be easier: Combine a bottle of red wine with some orange slices, warm spices, honey, and brandy, and let it simmer for 10 minutes. THAT’S IT. Try using dry varietals like Merlot, Malbec, or Cabernet Sauvignon. But really, your favorite bottle, whatever it may be, should work!

Big Apple Manhattan

This Manhattan uses apple brandy to give it a fruity twist. It’s a strong enough drink to handle any and all holiday hustling and is perfectly served with any apple dessert.

Cranberry Orange Whiskey Sour

We crave cranberry cocktails all season long, and this is the go-to cocktail this holiday season. It’s warm and spicy from the whiskey and ginger beer, but refreshing and tart from the cranberry and citrus.
