Two of my favorites Champange and Vodka. Just a tip to make this the best tasting brunch drink, chill the Champagne in the freezer before mixing your while the chilling over ice works it introduces water into the drink through the shards of ice!

Bourbon and citrus make the perfect holiday blend.   is an easy going cocktail that keeps a party going and can be sipped over a long evening.  The blood orange and lemon are a perfect balance to the sweet of the Bourbon and simple syrup.  This could easily turn into a year around favorite.

A creamy holiday cocktail that looks as pretty as it tastes.   is a yummy holiday drink.  Add a candy cane tied with a holiday ribbon for a festive presentation.  Cocktail glasses can be prepared/chilled in the fridge the day before the event.  The syrup will swirl better if both the glass and syrup are chilled.

Classic is good, Champagne Cocktail fits that description. Perfect for almost any celebration, easy to set up and serve. Classics are classics for a reason!

The Champagne Pomegranate Cocktail is a unique blend of Vodka, Champagne and Pama®.  Add in a few Pomegranate seeds for flavor and color and you have a fun cocktail that sparkles.  To keep the proof lower you can leave out the Vodka and it still tastes great and you can drink a few more before you hit your limit!

is perfect for the holiday season from Thanksgiving through Christmas.  It makes up in a great batch punch for larger groups.  Colorful, tasty and beautiful.  Everything you want to have for a cocktail party.

If you like gingerbread you'll like .  It is a fun holiday drink with a comfort food taste.  We used this amazing, albeit expensive, maple syrup.  There are times when using the best of something pays off.  A very different unique cocktail that will be a hit at your holiday bash!

We have to admit that we really have fun making up the names of these drinks!  The is a wonderful play off the flavors of the Tennessee Honey and sweet and spice notes.  The Rosemary makes this drink.  It also makes a beautiful holiday presentation for your cocktail event.  

Nothing says the holidays like a little sparkle!  We made a kickin' and added chocolate stars and real editable gold flakes.  (available on Amazon)  This is a fun girly drink and one of the few that when you finish the drink well you have to eat the chocolate stars.  Oh darn!  Holiday cocktails should be fun and that's just what this one is, fun.

Elegant and sophisticated in both looks and taste the is pretty amazing.  We started by using organic Dry Fly® Gin, a light clean gin with a smooth taste and just the barest hint of juniper.  This drink combines that with substituting the vermouth with another botanicals, Elderflower Liqueur.  We used Thatchers® which is also organic for one of the smoothest takes on a martini we've had in a while.

The origins of the French Connection is vague but the drink is not. This is a great after dinner drink. Great for sipping with Cognac and Amaretto it counts on great ingredients instead of mixers to give it its unique taste. With drinks like this it is always best to use the best ingredients you can afford. We like Amaretto DiSaronno and Hennessey VSOP in ours. Affordable but still great quality.

What a great drink! If you like gingerbread you will love this Honey Gingerbread. Smooth, sweet and flavorful it is a great drink to serve with food and for parties. It will go with anything! The lime cuts the sweetness a little and adds a tart after bite.

Kahula and Cream is a great after dinner drink that goes down like a cold adult coffee! Low proof and very drinkable this is a great drink for when you just want something tasty to finish off the evening but still get up in the morning to go to work. A little on the rich side the heavy cream offsets the coffee liqueur with just the right level of sweetness. Yum!

An aperitif the Negroni is a classic drink from 1919. Slightly bitter, many people double the amount of gin since the flavors of the Campri and sweet vermouth are no longer needed to mask the flavor of gin that would have been available during that time.

A great cold weather drink, the Nutty Irishman, we think ski lodge good, sitting before a roaring fire with a great book and your feet propped up. Rich and decadent a perfect guilty pleasure.

Orange Cardamon Gin And Tonic is a great winter drink for Gin lovers.  The Root liqueur gives it a botanical spicy flavor like root beer and the Dry Fly Gin has just the right balance, not too much juniper, to blend it all together.  Adding notes of orange citrus makes it the perfect winter drink.  Experiment with the Gins if you prefer a London Dry style but we really liked the smoothness of this drink.  It could convert a few non-Gin drinkers!

rocks, we love winter pears and this cocktail is amazing.  The Pear Cinnamon Italian Soda, (purchased at World Market), pairs up with the liqueur and pear flavored Vodka with a hint of cinnamon.This could be one of those drinks that become your go to drink for both fall and winter!

This is a very interesting drink, substituting in sake for the vermouth and then adding orange and cherry flavored liquors then top with Ginger Beer.  An unusual east meets west drink.  While it may sound strange the taste is very refreshing and somewhat addictive.  We made several just to get the proportions right and with each one we liked it more.  Or the Gin was talking... either way, for the adventurous mixologist! 

OMG, this is like drinking your favorite candy bar! Salted Caramel Martini is awesome if you you want something sweet and yummy. Vanilla Vodka, Frangelico and Kahlua along with some salted Caramel Syrup blend to perfection.

For the Rye drinkers in your group a fun and festive approach to a holiday cocktail is the .  You omit the candy if you want as the caramel syrup does most of the work but that little hint of chocolate is really quite tasty.  Your preference.

is a great iced tea drink that could also be served warm.  We preferred it chilled but either way its a great cocktail.  The whiskey and the chai tea really complement each other and the cherry liqueur off set the spice notes and sweetened up the tea.  Yum is all we have to say.  Great winter drink!

Earthy botanical, drink with the combination of the sweet of the cranberry Vodka and the spicy notes of the Green Chartreuse and Ginger Beer, this is a different kinda cocktail that could make Santa trade his reindeer in for this mule. Move over Rudolf!

The perfect after dinner drink or fun drink to share with the girls S'mores Martini is yummy. This drink is sweet, strong and smooth. Not to mention it tastes just like S'mores!

is a tropical twist on an eggnog drink with dark rum and coconut.  To add a little more kick it is paired with some coconut Vodka.  Too high proof for your party?  Go to 1 oz Dark Rum and 1/2 oz Coconut Vodka.  Love the addition of the Coconut and Cinnamon for a fun holiday taste.  Anyone for a Christmas Luau?

The blend of dark rum, chocolate and honey make a warm cozy drink.  Great for after dinner or sipping with your pals it has enough taste to hold up to dessert as well.  This drink in one hand and a bowl of ice cream in the other... HEAVEN

Fresh, clean and with a great fall to winter taste.   a Wild Turkey drink will please the whiskey cocktail drinker.  Not too sweet with a fair bit of sour from the lemon and a touch of sweet from the soda this is a great entry level cocktail.  Easy to make and even easier to drink.

We don't know if Jerry Garcia drank these at Woodstock but I'm sure anyone would like this drink. Smooth and balanced with a nice little kick, this drink can turn into your favorite song.

A fun twist on a Margarita that's red and green for Christmas.  The ginger beer goes well with the Tequila and adds a nice tang.  A pretty fun take on the classic Margarita on the rocks!

Reminds you of the Hollywood days of yore. Classic and tasty the Brown Derby Cocktail is great as a before dinner drink. Just a kiss of Maraschino liqueur, the Cherry Kiss is a light fun drink that will give you just a hint of fall with the dusting of nutmeg. We love Chai tea, so the Chai Toddy makes perfect sense. Warm and good for warming you up on a cold night it's everything you would want. Sweet and girlly with a hit of chocolate covered cherries, this is a great cocktail for people who don't drink much or like to keep it light.
