While I’m not planning on hosting a major holiday party this year, I’ll definitely be inviting friends over for a few casual hangs throughout the month, including a wreath making craft night with my girls that I’m especially pumped about.
Usually, I’ll ask friends to bring a bottle of wine and call it a day. But the holidays call for sips that are a bit more festive in the form of pretty, flavor-packed, and often boozy winter drinks.
At Thanksgiving I made a big pitcher of spiked eggnog, and just that one special touch made the day feel extra special. And this past weekend, I threw some apple cider in the crockpot and sipped on it throughout the day while my husband and I decorated for Christmas.
Thankfully, the internet is brimming with genius winter drink ideas for serving a crowd, and I’ve rounded up the most delicious ones here. Scroll on for holiday bevs that will get your guests in the spirit, STAT.
