5 Creative Christmas Drink Recipes

Posted by Treetopia in The Treetopian Lifestyle

Holidays are a time for indulgence. Serve these creative Christmas drinks to put everyone in a festive mood.

1. Snowman Hot Chocolate from Meet the Dubiens

There is nothing quite like curling up with a mug of steaming hot chocolate to warm you up on a cold winter. Make your regular hot chocolate even more special by dissolving a candy cane to give it a hint of mint. Throw in some whipped cream and toss snowman decorated marshmallows on top for a cute and adorable treat!

2. Candy Cane Cranberry Cocktail from Jenny Steffens

Plentiful in the winter, cranberries have that bright acidity that makes them the ideal peppy ingredient for Christmas cocktails. Surprise your guests with a refreshing cold drink made from cranberry juice, vodka and sierra mist. Serve this beverage in a glass with crushed candy cane on the rim. Garnish your drinks with fresh cranberries or a cute candy cane to give it a holiday look.

3. The Grinch Holiday Cocktail from Always Expect Moore

Holiday partygoers will love this fun cocktail inspired by the foul-tempered green creature himself. The drink looks green and slimy thanks to the addition of lime Jell-O. If you prefer something non-alcoholic, you can use Sparkling Moscato or lemon-lime soda instead. This will ensure that your drink still tastes absolutely delicious.

4. Santa Shot from Mix that Drink

Combine holiday colors and flavors and you get yourself a drink that will put anyone in a cheerful spirit. A great treat for parties, the Santa Shot looks and tastes like Christmas with its gorgeous red and green layer and candy cane flavor. Make this by pouring grenadine syrup in a tall glass, followed by creme de menthe, and then peppermint schnapps.
