 These alcoholic Christmas drinks will be perfect for your next party!  Get inspiration for fun and festive drinks to serve to your guests.  From traditional drink recipe to fun new recipes, these are sure to set the mood during the holiday season.


Christmas is a time to gather with friends and family.  For many families, it's a time to eat, drink, and be merry.


And those drinks just might include some alcoholic Christmas drinks for adults.  





Each year, I have no clue what to serve.  I mean, I'm pretty much a basic White Claw girl.  Black cherry is almost red, so that's Christmasy right?  Lime is green, so we have both Christmas colors covered.
