Cheers to the New Year!

Winding down another year calls for raising up a glass to “cheers!”. Whether you’re hosting a black-tie bash or lounging at your own personal pajama party, these cocktails and mocktails are a cause for celebration.

A few festive ingredients and optional garnishes are all you need to fill everyone’s cup with holiday spirit(s).

Big Batch Poinsettia Punch

This rosy, big batch cocktail brimming with holiday cheer is easy to mix up before guests arrive. Fresh rosemary adds bright, herbal flavor to a sweet-tart combo of cranberry and freshly squeezed orange juices, orange liqueur, and rum topped off with sparkling wine just before serving.  

Bourbon Eggnog Fizz

Save the last of your Christmas ‘nog for this classic cocktail with a New Year’s Eve-worthy upgrade. Sparkling wine gives new lift to a creamy combination of bourbon and nutmeg-dusted eggnog garnished with a cinnamon stick. 

Rosé-Grapefruit Cocktail

Peak season citrus, chilled rosé, and sparkling white wine are a celebration-worthy combo. With freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juices and optional citrus twist, it’s a refreshing alternative to champagne cocktails.


For a tropical take on tradition, blend up a batch of coquito, Puerto Rican-style eggnog. Creamy coconut milk, vanilla, and warming spices combine for a family-friendly drink that’s delicious with or without spiced rum.

Pomegranate-Red Wine Cocktail

This colorful cocktail is a holiday spin on sangria. Wine and pomegranate juice spiced with cinnamon and cloves is an easy winter warmer than can be made ahead in large batches so guests can serve themselves.

Slow Cooker Spiced Cider

Slow cook your way to a sweet and warmly spiced taste of the season with easy hot apple cider. The inviting aromas of cinnamon, cloves, and star anise combined with orange and ginger will greet your guests before they’ve taken a sip.

Pomegranate Hot Toddy

Vibrant pomegranate and cherry juices are the base for this mocktail take on a classic Hot Toddy. Vanilla, cloves, and cinnamon add holiday flavor to a cozy, sweet-tart cup accented with two kinds of citrus.
