Holiday Cocktails and Mocktails that are Perfect Beyond the Holidays

Disclaimer: This post is intended for readers 21+. There are cocktail recipe ideas below. However, you could omit the alcohol and make a delicious mocktail. If you do decide to have a cocktail, don't drink and drive. Also, an affiliate link is at the bottom of this post. 

While, technically, Thanksgiving and Christmas are over, the Holidays are still going strong for some. How many of you still have houses to go to, to visit with family or friends?

When I was a kid, we ALWAYS did Christmas at my grandma's house AFTER Christmas. It was her way of letting her children and grandchildren enjoy Christmas morning with their children and parents. She knew that we would all gather together in the days following, to enjoy each others company and open gifts. A bunch of my most favorite memories are of all of us squishing into her too-small-for-twenty-people-living-room and opening gifts. I love her for thinking of us in this way.

How many of you enjoy cocktails at holiday gatherings? A mocktail, perhaps, if you aren't a drinker. I've gathered a few of the most beautiful cocktails on the internet, and put them all in one place. For you. You're welcome. :) Which one will you try tonight?  

holiday cocktails
Caramel Apple Mimosas from Delish. And, holy smokes, they look DELISH!

holiday cocktails
Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Cider from The Recipe Rebel. This is the perfect recipe to make in the morning and enjoy in the afternoon.

holiday cocktails
Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria from Kitchn. I love a good, tall glass of fruity sangria. My favorite sangria is at a little restaurant in St. Augustine. Sadly, I can't get to St. Augustine as often as I'd like. With this fruit-filled recipe, I can make my very own sangria at home.

holiday cocktails
White Christmas Margarita from How Sweet It Is. It's 80 degrees in Florida today. The day after Christmas, y'all. This margarita is coconut based, so it's like a holiday drink, that's perfect for beach dwellers.

holiday cocktails
Cranberry Pineapple Punch from Natasha's Kitchen. The sweet pineapple. The tart cranberry. I'm sure this is the perfect combo for YUM!

holiday cocktails
Grinch Hot Chocolate from Cooking with Curls. The perfect drink for the kids at your party!
