Holiday Mocktails and Cocktails to Liven Up Holiday Parties

The holidays are our favorite time of year. Besides the fun time spent with our family and friends, we also get to create new exciting cocktails to bring to holiday parties. Here are a few of our favorite mocktails that are kid friendly and ready to share with everyone. 


And for a more “festive” cocktail we have included a list of extra ingredients to liven up the recipe with our favorite spirits.


We want to hear about the recipes that you break out on special occasions to impress your friends. We know you have them! Share them on our Facebook page or email us at and we will give you the credit you deserve.
