I love this time of year for many reasons--Entertaining, hosting, decorating, bright lights, smell of Christmas tree's and a whole lot more! But I think my ultimate favorite part of the holidays is getting together with friends and family and having an awesome dinner party where everyone can enjoy amazing food, games, and most importantly festive cocktails! One of the most important things to have when hosting a holiday party or dinner is a fully stocked bar for your guests to enjoy. Who doesn't love walking into a warm home where it's not only festive but well equipped with the proper holiday libations to keep the party going!
I wanted to share with you guys my top 3 favorite cocktail recipe's for the holiday season! Check it out below.
1 part vodka
1 part grapefruit juice
Fill the rest of the glass with champagne
Southern Peach Punch
24 oz (3 cups) peach juice
1 1/2 cups bourbon
1 bottle (750ml) Chandon Extra Dry Riche
Sprigs of mint
Elderflower Champagne Cocktail
1 (750-ml) bottle Brut champagne or dry sparkling wine, chilled
1 cup of elderflower liqueur, like St. Germain
1 (12-ounce) can of club soda or seltzer water, chilled
