Classic Cocktails with a Holiday Twist

We can’t think of a party that would be complete without a little alcohol.  You can sip a cocktail anytime, but there’s something extra special about a glass that was stirred up especially for the colder months. For example, how can you not get excited when Starbucks starts busting out the holiday cups, along with their seasonal lattes that we have been obsessing over, EVER since winter ended.  Whether you are hosting or attending a party, there is a lot of pressure to make it fun—or not show up empty handed.
If you’re excited as we are, and would like to discover a new twist on classic cocktails, browse below and tell us after what are your favorite holiday drinks?
