7 Christmas Inspired Drinks That Are Sure To Make Your Holidays A Bit Easier To Bare

As you all know, the holiday season is a great time to gather all of your loved ones, family and friends and have a wonderful time together. For some, having all of their family and friends in the same room at the same time is absolutely wonderful!

But for some … it can be quite a disaster!

Here are 7 christmas inspired drinks below that are sure to make your holidays a bit easier to bare.

(Or at least a bit easier to forget!)

The Candy Cane

Vanilla rum, white chocolate and peppermint, topped with candy canes? You’ll forget all about your holiday blues with this minty chocolatey goodness!

(Try not to drink too much!)

The Peppermint Stick

Although this one is almost like The Candy Cane, it uses different liqueurs. However, it maybe a bit heavy on the liquor, so try not to down too many of these all at once, or you’ll definitely have a grand ol’ time during the holidays.

(Or a grand ol’ hangover the day after.)

The Santa Shot

With it’s Christmas colors, this drink is sure to be a great way to take the edge of during this holiday season.

The Christmas Cookie

the christmas cookie cocktail drink

This may be a great drink to serve as a dessert at the adults table as it includes vanilla ice cream, cookie crumbs, whip cream and chocolate sauce! But don’t let the name fool you, it still includes liquor!

(Maybe there’s even a possibility of making a virgin Christmas cookie drink to serve at the kids table.)

The Grinch

the grinch cocktail drink

The color, the “screw” and the cherry on the bottom of the glass, (that’s supposed to represent the Grinch’s shrinking heart) just wreaks of the Grinch. However, it’s supposed to be really sweet!

(Ironic much? Lol) 

The Snowball

the snowball cocktail drink

For some reason, I had to do some real good searching to find a snowball recipe that would result in a drink that actually looks white! (Go figure!) However, I found it and here it is! White and fluffy just as I anticipated. Thank me later!

The Red Rudolph

the red rudolph cocktail drink

I never thought I’d see a hot drink with liquor in it, but I guess anything is possible right? And it’s definitely still Christmas-y since it is cold out. Maybe this would be a great substitution for the traditional hot chocolate?

(And in case you haven’t figured it out yet, all photos are clickable and will lead you straight to your holiday blues cure aka the recipe.)
