What We’re Loving: Holiday Cocktails




In just a few days, we’ll toast to the New Year, filled with anticipation for another 365 days full of possibilities. Your toasts could be filled with any of the below cocktails from a few of our favorite virtual bartenders (also known as, our favorite food bloggers!). Cheers to a delicious 2013!

This St. Festivus Flip is a fun twist on creamy, holiday-nogs you’ve had in the past. Plus, who can turn down a libation made in commemoration of a Seinfeld-inspired holiday. {from Wonderland Kitchen}

When I think of the perfect cocktail to enjoy while basking in the glow  of a roaring fire, I imagine something unadorned, simple, and classic. This Sage and Peppercorn old Fashioned is a festive twist on a tried and true cocktail. May I suggest enjoying it while wearing a robe and slippers? Faithful dog and pipe optional. {from Honest Fare}


This Apple Cider Hot Toddy is ideal for any time of day, but with ingredients like fresh apple cider, lemon, and green or black tea, it’s the perfect wake up and celebrate beverage. {from Cookie and Kate}

It would be a shame to wait for snow fall before enjoying this Boozy Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Instead, whip up a batch of the homemade peppermint schnapps right away and pair it with this richly-spiced warmer. Have fun piling on all the whipped cream, shaved chocolate and candy cane your mug can handle while playing that you’re snowed in for the day. {from The Boys Club}


Nothing says holiday season like fizz and pear to us. Prickly pear! This Prickly Pear Fizz is creamy and sweet, and would make a lovely shot at midnight. {Spoon Fork Bacon}
