7 Christmas Cocktails That Will Help You Get Through the Holidays

‘Tis the season to be jolly. And by “jolly” we mean “ever-so-slightly toasted to make it easier to endure holiday party small-talk with your co-workers’ spouses.”

See, Thanksgiving imbibing tends to be conservative, so that you don’t end up having too much and cursing out your uncle. And New Year’s drinking tends to be the opposite, as you toss back champagne flutes and end up yelling “Happy New Year!” even though it’s 4 a.m.

But this time of year? This is the sweet spot, where we can all get merry without going overboard.

So here are seven fun, festive, colorful cocktails that perfectly put the “spirit” in Christmas.

1. Candy Cane Cocktail

2. Ecuadorian Eggnog

3. Hot Buttered Rum

4. Champagne Cocktail

5. Mexicocoa

6. Sticky Toffee Pudding Eggnog

7. Spiced Manhattan
