Are you looking for some Christmas inspiration? In this list, you will find 10 Christmas drinks recipes for the perfect celebration. All of them are delicious and quick to make! Give them a try!
Christmas is just around the corner. And with the celebration of jolliness approaching so rapidly, I’m getting more and more excited to try out new festive recipes. This year I’ve also decided to include some drinks into the menu, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. After all, we all know a good dinner conversation is best fueled by an addictive drink, right? 😉
A classic drink for any Christmas party is, of course, the world-famous punch. A Christmas punch can be both alcoholic or not, and it usually contains either tea or some festive fruits such as cranberries or pineapple, mixed with alcohol such as wine, beer, or hard liquor. What makes a punch… a punch is its festive aroma and the fact that it’s made in huge, party-sized quantities. And if you want to make a remix to the classic punch, you can always add fruit purees to make stunning beers.
Another famous winter holiday drink is eggnog, which is the most popular choice in almost the entire United States. This is basically an egg liquor and it can also be alcoholic or not. But! In case you’re following a vegan diet, don’t you worry, as I have prepared a delicious vegan version for the eggnog that you can try out. You can find it in my list below!
Of course, there are countless cocktails out there that can be improved and adapted for the holiday season, depending on what ingredients you decide to add. You can find some other alcoholic versions below, for each and every taste – mojitos, Moscow mules, bourbons, and more.
In case you’re not a fan of alcohol, I got you as well! I may have a newly discovered passion for mixology and cocktail-making, but this doesn’t mean I say no to a good old cup of steaming hot chocolate! For me, hot chocolate is one of the staple winter drinks since I was a little kid and I love that it can be consumed by both adults and children alike. Plus, you can also mix and match and adapt it to your own preference by using either milk, dark or white chocolate, or even adding different spices or flavors such as cinnamon or mint. Sounds wonderful, right?
In case you’re just as excited as me to create this year’s Christmas menu, don’t forget about drinks as well. Regardless of whether you’re having your coworkers, closest friends, or family as guests, some festive drinks will perfectly complete the entire holiday experience.
I invite you to take a look at the list below and choose your favorites. I have divided my list of 10 Christmas drinks recipes into two categories: alcoholic and non-alcoholic, so it will suit every need and preference. You’ll find 5 options for each. Don’t forget to let me know what you think and what drinks you decide to prepare for this year’s winter holidays.
Ah, by the way, all the options below are perfect for New Year’s Eve as well… or for any other regular winter day, if you ask me. Happy holidays! 🙂
