As the holidays draw nearer, I’m thinking of all the delicious treats that only show up during Christmas. Along with pumpkin pie and Christmas cookies, I’ve been waiting for my favorite, the Gingerbread Cookie. Gingerbread schnapps, Kahlúa, and vanilla vodka provide the flavor on a backdrop of half and half, resulting in a glass of heaven. So grab a cup and warm yourself by the fire, as we break down how to make this gingerbread cocktail.

While looking for new holiday drinks for this year’s videos, I happened upon a recipe entitled A Taste of Winter. This sublime cocktail combines a few upscale ingredients to create something amazing. This drink’s flavor palate fits the winter theme to perfection, with tones of citrus, cherry, and orange. So crank up the tunes, grab yourself a glass, because the winter is about to warm up in a hurry.
The poinsettia has become a traditional Christmas decoration. This distinctive red flower graces many a home during the holidays. It has also inspired a champagne cocktail called the Pomegranate Poinsettia. Highlighting the flavors of pomegranate, orange, and champagne, the Poinsettia drink recipe truly deserves to be a Christmas mainstay.
You just can’t have a proper holiday season without eggnog. With that in mind, today we’re featuring a Christmas cocktail called the White Christmas. This is an eggnog drink flavored with SoCo and Godiva white chocolate liqueur, topped with just a hint of nutmeg. If Bing Crosby were still alive, you know he’d be drinking this too.
Another drink that doubles as a Christmas themed drink and a year-round standby is the Gingerbread Man cocktail. Ginger beer supplies the spice, while vanilla vodka mellows out the flavor and adds some body. Here’s the thing that I really like about this drink: two ingredients – three, if you count the cherry. For less than twenty bucks, you can serve this drink all night long.
It’s getting deep into the holiday season; what do you serve your guests? I would suggest a drink that reminds people of Christmas and leaves them satisfied (and hammered). Without further ado, we are proud to give you our Candy Cane Cocktail recipe.
Presentation counts for a lot with cocktails. The first time I made the Winter Sky cocktail, I was struck by the vivid blue hue, and how appropriate the name was. The cool blue provided by the curacao provides a sharp contrast to the red of the cherry floating in the bottom of the glass. This drink fits a winter theme,and is easy to make.
