Written by Melinda Hershey, Staff Writer

Take your holiday party to the next level with these fun and festive drinks! From cocktails to hot chocolate for the kids, there's something here for every guest on your list.

Ho-Ho-Ho Hot Toddy

This classic honey and scotch concoction will warm you from the inside out! Some swear by it to cure colds, but it also makes a cozy nightcap anytime.

Santa's Favorite Christmas Punch

Kids and adults alike will feel fancy sipping on this sparkling holiday punch! Substitute any kind of soda you’d like for a slightly different flavor. We also love it made with ginger ale.

Traditional Egg Nog

Creamy, spicy and comforting, there’s nothing like a glass of classic egg nog to celebrate the season. Serve with cookies by a warm fire!

Spicy Apple Cider Punch

This twist on apple cider is worthy of seconds and thirds! One of our favorites for a chilly evening.

Hot Cranberry Cider

Sick of apple cider? This cranberry version is a welcome change from the traditional hot drink!

Fizzy Pomegranate Punch

Savor this sweet and tart drink at your next holiday party! Serve in a large bowl with frozen fruit for a pretty presentation.

Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa

This decadent hot cocoa mix has just three ingredients, and is as tasty as it is easy! Serve with big, fluffy marshmallows.

Classic Cosmopolitan

The classic cosmopolitan is great year-round, but we think it makes any holiday celebration extra special with its ruby red color and a festive garnish. Serve in martini glasses!

Merry Mulled Wine

Why drink plain old wine when you can spice it up? This traditional winter drink is perfect for a snowy night in with someone you love.

Fruity Rum Punch

Vanilla, rum and fruit come together to make one deliciously festive cocktail! Serve with a sugared rim for extra holiday flair.

Whiskey Wonderland

Whiskey, cream and coffee blend together beautifully in this sophisticated cocktail. Just mix and sip!

Sparkling Strawberries & Champagne Punch

Sip pretty on this simple sparkling drink to celebrate Christmas Eve, or toast with it while you watch the ball drop for New Year's!
