It’s the most wonderful time of the year—thanks in part to the holiday cocktail parties we’ll attend this month. But not just any cocktail will do at these festive fêtes. The holidays call for something seasonal and special. Think champagne, cranberry, and mulled cider. Whether you’re serving up a cocktail or a mocktail, check out some of our favorite winter drink recipes to try at your next holiday party.

Sparkling sips
It seems champagne was made for the holidays—New Year’s Eve wouldn’t be the same without it. Since we tend to reserve such an elegant drink for special occasions, a holiday cocktail party is the perfect time to pop open a bottle and mix up some festive cocktails. These champagne cocktail recipes were made for the holidays.
