Holiday Champagne Cocktails And Punch!

So the holidays have officially began and only few days until Christmas Day and New Years Eve, we decided to ease the stress of party planning by creating a list of Holiday Champagne Cocktails and Punch in the merry spirits of the festive holidays that you should definitely try!

Here’s our picks:

Cashew Nut Nog

In a classic case of more is more, a beach-ball- size bowl of eggnog turns any house into a holiday central. Get the recipe here.

Sparkling Pear and Cranberry Cocktail

B1106PARTY2

This cocktail is made with icy Moscato d’Asti, which is sweeter than champagne but much lighter than the rich dessert wine also made from Italian Moscato grapes. Just the right medium for this fizzy drink, it adds flavor to the silky pear and tart cranberries. Get the recipe here.

Champagne Cocktail

Sorbet and Champagne Cocktail

The Champagne cocktail, an instant mood lightener, was the official drink of the “bright young things” who flitted through the novels of Evelyn Waugh. In this version, a scoop of sorbet takes the place of the traditional sugar and bitters and turns this classic into a delicious holiday slush. Get the recipe here.

Cran Royale

Cranberries are festive. The color red is festive. Sparkling wine? Also festive. This drink is basically as festive as you’re going to get without a miniature wreath hanging off of every stemmed glass. It’s a perfect balance of sweet and tart to even out the dryness of the Champagne. Get the recipe here.

Under- The-Mistletoe Punch
