Drink Menu for the Holidays

As a person who enjoys the occasional cocktail, I am always looking for new and fun drinks to share with family and friends. Not to say I dont enjoy straight tequila shots…I absolutely do but they are not always the go to drink.

For example, at Christmas I want to serve a signature drink and supplement with other options on hand. Last year I mixed a new combo that was a hit. adult cream soda

I mixed some apple cider and cinnamon roll vodka that tasted like an adult cream soda. It sneaks up on you because it goes down soooo smooth.

I want to expand the menu this year and I have some top contenders. The first in no particular order is Fuego. Its from Eats American Grill and looks like a perfect addition to a cold weather holiday.

Next is a refreshing take on the muddled favorite…a cucumber mojito. Its light and crisp, a great match for the heavier meals around the holidays. Diet Hood knows what makes a great cocktail!cucumber diet hood

This one is probably the most beautiful of all my contenders. A raspberry serrano sangria. I mean look at the beautiful holiday colors. I found this one at Tree Hugger.

For a sweet drink option like the one I served last year, I would go for the apple pie punch. The Cookie Rookie shared what I consider a great after dinner cocktail. I mean look at how yummy this looks!

The last one on my contender list isn’t as scary for the lightweight as it sounds. Its actually a smooth rum drink with more juice than alcohol. The Painkiller is a delicious drink from Islands and I can see myself making this year round.
