Spice Up The Festivities With These Summer Christmas Cocktails
Looking to host a party with Christmas Cocktails?
The most wonderful time of the year is finally here! After months of work, obligations, and stress, summer is here. People are looking forward to spending time with their nearest and dearest, enjoying the Christmas cocktails and other holiday festivities.
This brings us to the best part of Christmas break, the Christmas parties! And if you’re thinking of hosting one, then you’re thinking right! Hosting a Christmas party is such a joy. You gather a bunch of people, listen to some music, eat some food, and drink some booze. What a joyful time.
You will need to start planning things though, including the guest list, food, decorations, and most importantly, beverages.
Looking to add a little merriment?
When it comes to a party’s drinks list, you should always consider seasonality. An Aussie Christmas party should involve a selection of summer Christmas cocktails to keep your guests cool and merry. Here are some festive cocktails that are perfect for your summer Christmas party!
A festive spin on a debatable cocktail. What makes this Espresso Martini festive is the addition of crushed peppermint candy canes on the rim of the glass and sprinkled on the foam. A fun little surprise for any spiked espresso lover.
The classic cocktail that needs no drastic changes. Simply add some fresh cranberries as a garnish, along with some white sugar on the rim to add a Christmas look.
White Christmas Margaritas
For this festive drink, just add some coconut milk to the classic summer cocktail recipe. This little change will create a tropical Christmas feel to your party!
Jolly Fruit Punch
If you say you aren’t a punch fan, well, you’re not fooling anyone. This crowd-pleaser has plenty of Christmas cocktail potential. Simply add some fresh fruit to the mix!
Gin-gle Bells & Tonic
A go-to order for many, the gin and tonic is taken up a Christmas notch. Some muddled strawberries and fresh mint will do just the trick to turn the standard order into the perfect summer sip.
Frosé the Snowman
Such an easy, yet impressive cocktail choice. This frozen drink will keep your guests cool all evening.
