There’s something intrinsically comforting about Christmas cocktails. Settling into a cozy toddy or an extra-decadent, egg nog-infused concoction can put anyone in the mood for Caroling. Or for Die Hard. Which is ABSOLUTELY a Christmas movie.  

A good festive mixer can also serve as a well-earned antidote to the stress of the holiday season. Plus it offers a soothing option that won’t lead to a lampshade on the head situation at the office party.

If you are on the hunt for a season appropriate snifter to serve at your own festive gala, this is the list for you.

7 Christmas Cocktails To Try

Cranberry-Ginger Shrub

This bold mixer makes an excellent mocktail for any teetotalling guests. Or precocious offspring who insist on joining the festivities. And you can always liven it up with a dash of junipery gin.

Hot Buttered Rum with Coconut-Vanilla Ice-Cream Balls

This one is certain to show up on your guests Insta stories, if you can pull it off. “Snowballs” of vanilla ice cream (or whatever kind of ice cream you like) immersed in coconut make the perfect garnish to a decadently delicious hot cup of buttered rum.

Pink Grapefruit Margaritas

Offer a Feliz Navidad toast with this southwestern themed margarita. A dash of spicy zest to balance out your drink list is sure to impress.

Hot Toddy with Charred Oranges

This caramelized classic is a mainstay on the winter drink menu, and it’s sure to find favour at your party. Pro tip: Grill or broil the oranges for an extra-flavorful boost to an already delicious dram.

Warm Tea-and-Cider Punch

You really cannot do winter without cider. This variation on a toddy adds a touch of apple to sweeten the pot.

Pumpkin Spice White Russian

Pumpkin spice gets overused when the colder months arrive. As in, when October hits, the only thing that doesn’t get a pumpkin based upgrade is canned tuna. But there is no denying that when properly applied, a touch of pumpkin can enhance your sipping.

Driven Snow Cocktail

The only thing missing from this rum-based glory is a crispy gingerbread cookie for dunking.
