Holiday Cocktails and Mocktails for a Festive Season

Let’s get into the holiday spirits. Though seasonal beers are great, your celebration deserves something a little more festive. Whether you’re hosting brunch or throwing the afterparty, it’s important to include a holiday drink to liven up the party. From bubbly champagnes to crowd-pleasing punches, we have the inspiration you need to find the right holiday cocktails for the occasion.

Party Punches

Keep things simple with a holiday punch. The best thing about this option is that it allows guests to serve themselves, so you get to spend your time socializing rather than playing bartender. You can use a communal bowl or keep the drink in an easy-to-pour pitcher. Try to find something refreshing, delicious and festive, like a fruity Christmas Punch made with orange juice, cranberry juice, mango juice, ginger ale and champagne. Check out the recipes below or our full collection of holiday punch recipes for more drink inspiration.

Holiday Cocktail & Mocktail Recipes

Get into the holiday spirit with fun and delicious holiday cocktails and mocktails. Whether you’re hosting a party and need a Christmas punch recipe, or if you want something festive while wrapping gifts, we have holiday drink recipes for you!

Hot Cocktails

Instead of whipping up a big bowl of Christmas punch, here’s a hot take: serve warm alcoholic drinks. We all know that cold days call for warm-you-up drinks like Creamy Hot Chocolate, but you can take it to the next level with a hot alcoholic drink. Whether it’s Warm Cranberry Orange Cider, Apple Cider Hot Toddy or a slowcooked Blackberry and Ginger Mulled Wine, a hot Christmas cocktail is a surefire way to ward off the winter’s chill.

Family-Friendly Mocktails

If your party includes kids, be sure to have some family-friendly options on hand. You can serve popular non-alcoholic Christmas drinks like Mulled Grape Juice, get creative with a Sparkling Hibiscus Mocktail or offer the little ones a delicious mocktail, like this Strawberry Paloma Mocktail. You can take the elements of your favorite cocktail and turn it into an all-ages drink by swapping the alcohol with sparkling water, ginger beer or non-alcoholic spirits.
