5 Christmas Cocktail Ideas

December 24, 2021

If you’re celebrating the holidays with family or friends and need a festive cocktail idea, I’ve got you! Below I found some tasty recipes to fit whatever vibe you’re going for. My family is looking forward to some Christmas mimosas on Christmas day, but there’s other options, as well. All these recipes are relatively easy to make so you’re not spending too much time away from your loved ones. Check out these five Christmas cocktail ideas below – they’re guaranteed to taste like Christmas!

Cranberry Mimosa by Chisel & Fork

With fresh cranberry juice, orange liqueur and champagne, this cranberry mimosa is the perfect drink to start the holidays. The colors alone just put you in the holiday spirit, but when you taste the cranberries and get a whiff of the fresh rosemary with every sip, you’ll quickly realize you’ll be having more than one.

Reindeer Christmas Margarita by Kimspired DIY

Tequila, Bailey’s, half and half, almond milk, vanilla, and a sprinkle of cinnamon! A tasty and festive margarita that looks like a Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.

Holiday Sangria by Our Salty Kitchen

Infused with warm seasonal spices and flavors, this Holiday Sangria is the perfect pitcher cocktail recipe for all of your entertaining needs. The prep takes just 15 minutes and it can (and should) be made in advance – one last task to do on party day!

Jack Frost Mimosa by Rachel Cooks

A gorgeous hue of blue, a Jack Frost mimosa, with its “frosty” rim of coconut,  is a spectacular addition to your brunch or holiday party. Pineapple, coconut, rum are lightened up with addition of bubbly prosecco. The distinctive blue color comes from Blue Curaça.

Skinny Cranberry Margarita by My Crazy Good Life

This Skinny Cranberry Margarita recipe is the perfect balance between healthy and indulgent. No added sugar or artificial sweeteners, no syrups, but full of flavor and natural sweetness with about 100 calories.

Which drink sounds the best to you? I’d love to hear in the comments below! We ended up doing mimosas at my parents! I couldn’t find any actual cranberries, though. Bummer, but still delicious!
