Share Article

Finding cocktail recipes that are both tasty and not too difficult to make can almost seem impossible.

Some recipes call for ingredients you can never find or require too much effort.

Who has time to muddle sugar cubes when you’re too busy shopping, wrapping gifts, and entertaining family members?

With that in mind, we picked out a few Holiday cocktail recipes that are delicious and relatively easy to mix up.

BONUS: Enjoy these while wrapping gifts and playing our Hallmark Christmas Movie Drinking Game.

Bulleit Hot Toddy

Combine all ingredients in your favorite mug, stir, and enjoy.

Dam Good Cranberry

Cranberries are a wintertime delight. This sweet and tangy fruit is a staple on most Holiday tables and is great for a Holiday cocktail.


Combine the vodka and cranberry juice and pour it over ice in a rocks glass. Top it off with fresh cranberries and a splash of ginger ale.

Peach Party Punch

This one requires a little more effort, but it makes a whole batch so you’re not constantly mixing up new drinks during your holiday party.


Cosmos, anyone? Shake things up and serve up this Holiday twist on a classic cocktail.

  • 1/2 cup of cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup of white cranberry-peach juice
  • 1 oz triple sec
