It quite literally wouldn’t be a merry Christmas without some wonderful cocktails.

Perfect Christmas party drinks

1 / 9

Christmas punch

Full of seasonal ingredients

Kitsch is cool, so a whacking great punchbowl at a party must be too. And when it tastes this good, everyone will be happy.

Somehow they take a backseat throughout all the worrying about turkey cooking times and hoovering up pine needles, but Christmas drinks should be about more than some discount bubbly at the supermarket. Although that’s great too. Here are some clever ideas for cocktails to get your party off to a flying start.

Christmas is a time to let loose the creativity in the drinks department. Whether it’s an epic chocolate eggnog, a wonderful hot buttered rum after a winter walk, or that old classic mulled wine, there is no feeling in the world like relaxing, feet up in front of the fire with a drink during Christmas.

And then there’s the parties. In my house it was always gin and tonics, stubby beers and the odd glass of sherry if we were going to be eating something later. But not this year. From winter daiquiris to Pimped-up Prosecco to spiced pomegranate-infused gin via a Treacle cocktail we’ve got everything – even an alcohol-free Mulled pear and ginger drink for the kids.

If those don’t tickle your fancy, try the amazing Christmas cocktails below for your Christmas party – all can be made in advance or knocked up in a matter of seconds, and they will make your party the toast of Christmas.

This Christmas tipple is good with or without booze, making it perfect for a celebration with friends and family of all ages. Cranberry and tart cherry juices, simple syrup, allspice and ginger are shaken with rum (if desired), then strained over ice and topped with ginger ale to make a sweet, spiced and warming concoction. Garnish with grated ginger and fresh rosemary.

Spruce up your typical Mimosa with some holiday flair. Instead of orange juice, this recipe adds white creme de menthe and chocolate bitters to sparkling wine for a peppermint mocha effect, while a candy cane stirrer adds a beautiful and festive presentation. Cap it all off with a chocolate- and candy-cane-rimmed glass, and you have a drink you’ll be thinking about all the way to next Christmas.

65+ Christmas Cocktails to Celebrate the Spirit(s) of the Season

This year, let's face it, Christmas is going to be a little different. Folks are avoiding big indoor crowds, so Christmas parties around the hearth and tree are out. Instead, there are outdoor gatherings and smaller, more family-focused Christmas celebrations. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun! And one of the best ways to unwind over the holidays is by mixing up a fancy Christmas cocktail or two to pair with your Christmas desserts.

In fact, this may be the year to experiment with holiday cocktails.

And if you are hosting an outdoor fest, then you'll want to focus on drinks like mulled ciders and hot toddies, to keep friends warm.

These Christmas drinks are especially delicious. There's just something so warming and comfortable about them. From cozy toddies to citrusy spritzes, to extra-decadent concoctions like white Russians, egg nogs, or our signature Driven Snow (a rummy mix of ginger, white chocolate, and candy canes), these drinks are guaranteed to help you relax your shoulders, unwind from the stress of the holiday season, and celebrate in style. And this year, who doesn't need that?
