17 holiday cocktails that taste like every good memory you've ever forgotten
If there’s one thing we *love* about the holidays, it’s that it’s now ~officially~ appropriate to indulge in our fave seasonal foods and drinks. Let’s be honest: By late October, we’re all hardcore craving some good, wintry holiday cocktails. Sure, you can technically drink eggnog any time of the year that you damn well please, but it’s just not the same unless you’re in front of a roaring open fire (or, like, a battle-worn but trusty Target space heater).
These 17 Pinterest-approved holiday cocktails taste like the alcohol form of all of your best childhood holiday memories. From Jack Frost- and Rudolph-inspired drinks, to winter takes on classic drinks, to variations on the eggnog standard, there’s something for everyone.
Brew up one of these bad boys with your friends or family, settle in, and tune to your fave holiday movie, stat. (And FYI, if you’re not a drinker, be sure to check out our round-up of the best mocktails for this holiday season!)
