A proper holiday party needs a few key items: good company, tasty finger food and a great signature cocktail. While having a fully stocked bar may be ideal, it’s just as special (and way more cost-efficient) to have one or two drinks that you can proudly say you mixed up yourself. Whether you like sweet and sparkly or stiff and tangy (or both!), here are a few holiday cocktail ideas to get you started:
Ginger + Lime Juice + Club Soda + Vodka = Fizzy Ginger Limeade
Pomegranate Juice + Prosecco + Tangerine Juice = Tangerine Pomegranate Sparklers
Rosé + Grape Juice = Blushing Rosé Punch

Take a deep breath, people, we’re almost to the weekend! So take a moment to mentally prepare and engage in–what college students often call–Thirsty Thursday. Unlike some college students though, let’s keep it classy by kicking back and relaxing with our April-inspired Champagne Cocktail instead of multiple Pabst Blue Ribbons (no offense). Read more about it and get the recipe below!
In our “Year of Champagne Cocktails” recipe collection, we used the classic “Gin and Juice” as inspiration for our custom-made April concoction. We promise that once you taste how the gin’s herbal notes pair perfectly with the rose and red fruit flavors from the pink champagne, you’ll swear we took the spring season and put it directly into a glass. Sip on this cocktail when you’re ready to ring in Spring, which we so are!
