Sometimes food gets all the fanfare around the holidays with Christmas cookies, delicious appetizers, and meaty main courses, but holiday drinks can be another part of the festive fun! We rounded up this list of 20 drink recipes to add to and aid in your holiday spirit, including boozy cocktails, mulled wine, creative hot cocoa options, and more.
And because we don’t want to leave the moms-to-be out of the festive fun, we’ve noted some adjustments to turn cocktails into mocktails without losing (all) the flavor. When I was pregnant, a faux cocktail and dessert became my wine substitute. Dessert on this list comes in the form of sweet, scrumptious beverages like reimagined eggnog, surprising smoothies, and haute hot chocolate (check out the red velvet recipe below). Yum and cheers!
