Christmas is coming! Like many holidays, the food and drinks are often one of the most celebrated aspects of the coming season. We get to use special ingredients that are reserved only for this unique time of year, which makes it that much more special. I love switching up everyday recipes with seasonal favorites, and that includes cocktails. If you’re looking to make this season that much more special, check out these easy Christmas cocktails to make this year.
1. White Christmas Mojito
This creamy coconut White Christmas Mojito is everything that’s right with the holidays. The milky white color, the gorgeous pops of red color from the pomegranate arils and the lovely mint greenery. If you want a little taste of the tropics amidst some long snowy nights, this mojito will do the trick.
We found this delicious looking mojito at HalfBakedHarvest.com. Head over for 6 more holiday cocktails!
2. Cranberry Mule
A traditional Moscow Mule is made with ginger beer, vodka and served in a copper mug. This holiday version adds cranberry juice, spiced rum and candied cranberries on top for the ultimate festive vibe. It’s pretty and tastes pretty delicious too.
