Boozy Hot Chocolate

This has got to be one of the easiest holiday cocktails to make! All you need is one packet of hot chocolate mix (Ghirardelli is my fave!), 6 oz of hot oat milk (or milk of choice), 1.5 oz of Baileys, marshmallows, and whipped cream. Make your hot chocolate according to the directions on the packet, add your Baileys, and top with whatever toppings you like. If you're feeling extra festive, add in chocolate shavings (I use chocolate and a lemon zester) and a candy cane.

Holly Jolly Christmas Citrus Cocktail

For something that's a bit more refreshing, this cocktail looks so delicious. With vodka, St. Germain, and fresh squeezed citrus, what's not to love? Topped with some ginger beer and pomegranate seeds, this recipe is not only pretty, but festive as well.
