Raspberry Lemonade Champagne Smash

If you’re looking for something marginally more refined than a case of pink André, I’ve got other choices that can be made individually crafted cups. Here are some of the unique creations.

Grapefruit Champagne Punch

Meyer Lemon Whiskey Sour

These sour and strong little drinks are made with rye and freshly squeezed sweet Meyer lemon juice, and can be made in a large batch or individually, depending on how many James Bond fans you'll have at your New Year's bash — because, ya know, if you make them individually they could be shaken, not stirred.

Apple Cider Hot Toddy

Apple Cider Hot Toddy

This is an amazing cocktail for cold weather. The apple cider and bourbon come together to increase the warmth. The spices and tea smells incredible, and the lemon juice helps it all go down smoothly. Check out recipe at Cookie + Kate.

Kahlua Hot Chocolate

Kahlua Hot Chocolate

Another cold weather usual – hot cocoa spiked with the sweet and dark liqueur Kahlua. This is a mature-er take on your childhood favorite as the hot chocolate is made from scratch rather than from one of those packets you’d buy at the store. Get the recipe at Damn Delicious.

Pineapple Sangria

Pineapple Sangria

How Sweet It Is‘s pineapple sangria sounds perfect for a New Year punch! I would eat just about anything if it had a slice of pineapple on top, and doesn’t this just look perfect.

Bourbon Slushies

Bourbon Slushies

Bourbon slushies are a holiday tradition, and they are just incredible. If you are willing to make these delicious things, prepare yourself for a wonderful evening. Get the recipe at Brown Eyed Baker.

Festive Cranberry Margaritas

Festive Cranberry Margaritas

This one incorporates those cranberries you have remaining in your refrigerator from Christmas, and puts them to work with tequila and Grand Marnier. Check this out at The Kitchn.

Raspberry Lemonade Champagne Smash

Raspberry Lemonade Champagne Smash

Raspberry lemonade, my favorite juice drink from Willow Bird Baking, adds a little champagne and some muddled fruit that transforms instantly to a bubbly bright drink perfect for New Year 2016.

Blood Orange Mimosas

Blood Orange Mimosas

No New Year’s cocktail list would be complete without some fashionable tips for serving the next morning, these blood orange mimosas will take your brunch to the next level. Recipe from The Kitchn.
