New Year’s Eve is almost here! We think that the best part of the evening is toasting to our wonderful friends and family, so we pulled together a variety of cocktails to mark the occasion. Here, we count down our seven favorites for those who fancy imbibing something sweet, something serious or something in-between.
Something Elegant: Pear and Cranberry Bellini
Try Prosecco instead of champagne in these pink Bellinis made with pear nectar and cranberry juice. This drink works just as well for New Year’s Day brunch as a classy cocktail party.
Something Indulgent: Raspberry Chocolate Martini
Shake raspberries and mint syrup with vodka and a splash of cranberry juice to make a classic martini into dessert. For an extra treat, coat the rim of each glass with crushed chocolate cookies.
Something Festive: Bourbon Sparklers
Add hard sparkling cider to your favorite bourbon for a holiday treat that is sure to warm you up. Perfect for enjoying fireside or apres-ski in the cozy lodge.
Something Tropical: Fizzy Mojito
The Cuban cocktail gets a New Year’s twist by adding just a bit of champagne, whether you’re enjoying the evening in a warm locale or simply dreaming of one.
Something Classic: Kahlua Eggnog
Just because the 25th has passed, doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy holiday beverages. Add Kahlua for an extra kick that will keep you awake to midnight.
Something Bright: Pomegranate Margarita
Margaritas are definitely appropriate for any and all occasions. Add pomegranate seeds for some extra pizzazz!
Something Essential: Champagne
When celebrating, there is nothing better than bubbly. Cheers!
