Become a master mixologist with our picks for the best party drinks!

Just a week ago, we rounded up 25 favorite party appetizers, selected based on the most searched for and sought-after recipes on the Web. We showed you how you can turn a dip like spinach and artichoke into a fan favorite by serving it hot or cold, and how you can transform lettuce cup appetizers into a fun DIY bar. But a snazzy menu isn’t the only thing that makes a holiday party a success — it is the drinks, too!

Hosting a holiday party is an art form. You aren’t simply inviting guests over; you are creating an experience. From the centerpieces to the linens, your party should be an expression of you. That being said, making decisions for a party isn't always clear-cut. Do you put out the china or use your everyday flatware? Should you make a signature cocktail or just serve a simple drink? And, most importantly, what will you serve?

To make sure that you party is a total success, we used the same methodology as we did for our list of favorite appetizers to bring you the most popular drinks guests want to sip at your party. From the familiar margarita to the more obscure Vesper cocktail, these drinks will make you look like a master mixologist. Now that you can wow guests with both delicious food and beautifully boozy drinks, you will surely be dubbed the "host or hostess with the mostest." You can thank us later.


17 Big-Batch Cocktails That’ll Get Everyone Drunk At Your Holiday Party

Holiday parties are fantastic. At least, the first few holiday parties of the year are fantastic. After that, each one can start to feel like a blur of ugly sweaters, campy music and maybe a sea of friends and family members you only see once a year (on purpose). You know what makes any holiday party instantly fabulous, though? Big-batch holiday cocktails.

A few bottles of wine and bourbon are all it really takes to get people good and tipsy at a holiday party, but well-planned holiday cocktails can totally bring things to the next level.

Since no one has time to mix individual drinks while they’re singing carols and filling up on sugar cookies, big-batch holiday cocktails are the way to go. Make a huge batch of some festive, boozy drink before everyone arrives, then set it out with a ladle and some cups and let guests go to town. And feel free to set out some no-cook holiday appetizers while you’re at it, you hostess with the mostess, you.

The following big-batch holiday cocktail recipes range from classic eggnog to a fancy gin punch you’ve definitely never tried before. Pick one (or a few) for your upcoming holiday fête, and watch as guests bask in the revelry.

Gin and Cranberry Sauced

Turn the classic holiday poultry accompaniment into a cocktail that will –– heed this warning –– get you sauced. With plenty of gin and a dash of bitters, the cranberry-lime, rosemary-topped drink tastes like a festive Cosmopolitan.

Cranberry, Orange and Prosecco

Eggnog

Cranberry Kir Royale

Ruby-red cranberries make an ideal seasonal ingredient star for holiday cocktails. Tyler adds fresh orange juice and zest to his homemade cranberry syrup for a bubbly beverage that brims with sweet-tart flavor.

Candy Cane Martini

Tiffani's Hot Toddy

Tiffani sets her hot toddy apart by adding a subtle tinge of lavender in the form of infused honey. For even more floral flavor, she suggests garnishing the drink with dried lavender buds.

Coal in Your Stocking Cocktail

Despite its name, this vibrant cocktail from Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark is more like a sippable gift. Dark, smoky whiskey and bitters are brightened by triple sec, candied citrus peels and a maraschino cherry –– like a fruitier take on a Manhattan.

Spiced Orange Mimosas

Nadia adds an exotic element to a mimosa by infusing orange juice with warm wintry spices, including clove, star anise and cardamom. Muddled lemon balm leaves provide another aromatic (and decorative) finishing touch.

Ginger Rum Shandy

Chuck spices up his shandy for the holidays by adding rum to the beer-and-fruit-juice classic combo. Apple juice and slices as well as both grated and peeled ginger give it a distinctly wintry-warm flavor profile.

Bourbon Cider Sipper

Nicely spiced and topped with a clove-studded apple slice, this wintry cocktail looks as festive as it tastes. Bourbon lovers will delight in the strong presence of the rich, smoky liquor.

Cranberry-Orange-Cinnamon Vodka Tonic

Spicy cinnamon vodka contrasts with citrusy orange in this surprisingly warm and spicy concoction. Muddled cranberries add an extra tangy punch and make for a visually appealing glass.

Lemon Raspberry Fizz

Limoncello –– the liqueur made by steeping lemon peels in vodka for a couple weeks –– is synonymous with celebration in Italian culture. Here, Giada De Laurentiis combines the tart beverage with Champagne (though any sparkling white will do) and berries for a bright, bubbly flute.

Chocolate Espresso Martini

Dessert? Pick-me-up? Knock-you-down? This drink, which combines complementary espresso and chocolate, is sure to satisfy all three of those descriptors and add an indulgent punch to your holiday affair.

Orange Clove Tequilarita (or "I Want Tequila My Relatives")

The anecdote to a house full of guests and the stresses of hosting? A tequila-based cocktail tempered by a variety of fresh and liqueur-based citrus flavors. A clove simple syrup infuses the drink with wintry warmth.

Meshugana Macaroon

Meshugana is the Yiddish word for "crazy," and Alie and Georgia's cocktail has all kinds of crazy coconut flavor. To make their sweet and stylish sipper, shake a mixture of coconut rum, coconut creme, vanilla-infused vodka and a teaspoon of egg white (for a bit of festive froth), then pour into a chocolate-rimmed glass.

Bellini Bar

Set up a Bellini bar for your guests to get the holiday off to a celebratory start. Make an assortment of fruit purees and syrups ahead of time so that all you have to do the morning-of is pop the Prosecco.


Rita Margarita

Adding some tiki to the traditonal margarita brings life to my new favorite way to cocktail — The Tiki Rita Margarita!

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Tequila Silver
  • 1 oz. Simple Syrup
  • 1 oz. Orange Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. Fresh Grapefruit Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Allspice Dram
  • 1/4 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Lime, sliced
  • Dash Ground Nutmeg

Instructions

Begin by making the simple syrup mixing the turbinado sugar and
water. Make as much as desired (to save some for later) by matching 1:1
the amounts of both until it begins to dissolve. Example: 3 tbsp of
sugar to 3 tbsp of water.

In a shaker, add tequila, grapefruit
juice, allspice dram, orange liqueur, lemon juice, simple syrup and ice.
Shake all ingredients for 1 to 2 minutes then sit to side.

On a small plate sprinkle a few tbsp of turbinado sugar (or salt), wet the
rim of the glass with the sliced lime, and spin the rim of the glass
into the sugar until it is coated.

Pour blended ingredients in the glass, add dash of nutmeg then serve.


Festive Punch Recipes to Serve at Your Next Holiday Party

The holiday season is synonymous with parties, and plenty of them. Caroling parties, office parties, cookie exchange parties, ugly sweater potlucks, white elephant gift exchanges, neighborhood open house buffets, New Year's Eve galas, and more. For most of us, there so many parties but so little time. What does every great holiday party have in common (besides indulgent appetizers and plenty of cookies)? Good cheer&mdashespecially in the form of free-flowing festive beverages. This is the domain of the punch bowl, where guests can gather round, make conversation, and serve themselves&mdashand you don't need to play bartender.

Another great feature of holiday party punches? You can make them ahead of time! Just about every ingredient in a punch&mdashspirits, juices, fruits, spices&mdashcan be mixed several hours ahead of time and stored in pitchers or jars in the fridge until party time. There are just a few ingredients that shouldn't be added until the punch is ready to serve. The obvious one, of course, is ice, as it will just melt and water down the drink before anyone can enjoy it. Another last-minute ingredient is anything with bubbles: sparkling wine, seltzer, and soda. Preserve maximum effervescence by waiting to pop those bottles open and add them to the punch once the first guest rings the doorbell.


You and your guests will warm right up with some homemade hot chocolate. Allow your guests to customize their drinks by setting up a hot chocolate bar. They can top off their mugs with their choice of whipped cream, candy canes, marshmallows, or crushed cookies.

Impress your friends and family by serving this cool cocktail in a copper mug. Whether you’re making enough for one cocktail or eight, the recipe is easy to throw together at a moment’s notice. Just mix vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, and ginger beer, pour over ice, and serve with a lime wedge. It’s that easy!
