Whether you need them for your next holiday party, or are just looking for a way of dealing with family, here are some Christmas drink recipes to make your holiday a lot merrier.

Candy Cane Cocoa


• 4 cups of milk
• 3 squares of 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped
• 4 peppermint candy canes, crushed
• 1 cup whipped cream
• 4 small peppermint candy canes
• 1 shot of favorite whiskey

In a saucepan, heat up milk until warm. Stir in the chocolate and the crushed peppermint candies until melted and smooth. Then add a shot, or two, of your favorite whiskey. Pour hot cocoa into four mugs, and garnish with whipped cream. Serve each with a candy cane stirring stick and a high five.

Homemade Eggnog


• 6 eggs
• 1 cup of sugar
• 3/4 cup of brandy
• 1/3 cup of dark rum (or bourbon)
• 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
• 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
• 2 cups of whipped cream
• 2 cups of milk

Make sure all liquids are very cold before you make the drink. Beat the eggs at medium speed until they’re very frothy or unconscious (sorry for the lame joke). Gradually add the sugar, vanilla and nutmeg as you continue beating. Now turn the mixer off and stir in the whipping cream, milk, brandy and rum. It’s best to keep it chilled at all times. Garnish each individual serving with the nutmeg sprinkled on top and a cinnamon stick.

If you want a non-alcoholic version, just simply leave out the alcohol.

Christmas Cookie


• 1 ounce peppermint schnapps
• 1 ounce of Kahlua
• 1 ounce of Bailey’s

If you’re wanting a super easy recipe, this is the one for you. Simply mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake thoroughly, then strain the ingredients into a chilled martini glass or a paper cup depending on how fancy you want to be.

• 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth

English Christmas Punch


• 750 mL bottle dark rum
• 750 mL bottle dry red wine
• 3 cups strong tea
• 1 lb superfine sugar
• 1 one large orange, for juice
• 1 lemon, for juice

This one has a few steps, but definitely worth it in the end. Heat, but do not allow to boil, the wine, tea, lemon and orange juices in a saucepan. Pour the heated mix into a heat proof punch bowl. Place as much sugar as possible into a large ladle and any excess sugar into the punch bowl. Pour rum over the sugar in the ladle. Light the rum and sugar in the ladle on fire and pour it into the punch. Stir well and extinguish the flames. Pour the remainder of the rum into the punch. Stir well.

Blue Snowflake


• 2 ounces of Hpnotiq
• 1 splash of vodka
• 1 ounce pineapple juice

This may be the easiest Christmas cocktail of all time. Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Strain into glass. You can switch out the pineapple juice for whatever kind of juice you want.

Holiday Mimosa


• 1/4 cup of orange liqueur
• 2 tablespoons of white sugar
• 1 cup of orange juice
• 1 bottle of  champagne chilled

This recipe goes beyond just simply adding champagne to orange juice. Pour the orange liqueur in a shallow bowl; put the sugar in a saucer. Dip just the rims of 6 glasses in the orange liqueur and then in the sugar to form a thin sugared rim. Divide remaining orange liqueur and orange juice among the 6 prepared glasses. Top with champagne. Serve immediately.

The Grinch


• 2 ounces of Midori
• 1/2 ounce lemon juice
• 1 teaspoon of syrup
• 1 maraschino cherry (for garnish)

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a punch or cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry, serve. The reason it’s called ‘The Grinch’ is because you might get a little cranky after it disappears in a few seconds.
