10 Holiday Cocktails That Will Get You On The Polar Express To Tipsy-Town

The holiday season is arguably the most stressful time of the year. Most of us forget that it is meant to be enjoyable too!

As a reminder for all of us, the holidays exist for only one real reason. Not to stress us out, but for us to celebrate and commemorate memories with family and friends.

They're also a fantastic excuse to get drunk! Which is why I compiled a list of some of the most unique and tasty holiday cocktails for you to enjoy, ones that are for sure to get you on the train to tipsy-town.

1. Sugared Cranberry Ginger Mimosa

All you need is cranberry juice, ginger beer and champagne. Garnish it with some sugared cranberries if you desire, but this drink is a festive cocktail you're sure to enjoy all winter long!

2. Winter Sangria

Sangria is usually a hit or miss for me, and while I tend to lean towards white sangrias, this one just screams holiday cheer and I'm so excited to make it! The official list of ingredients includes:

One bottle of sweet red wine, one bottle of sparkling cran-apple cider, two clementines, two granny smith apples (cored and diced), a half-cup of pomegranate arils and one cup cranberries sliced in half. Add rosemary as a garnish!

3. Pomegranate Rosemary Spritzer 

If you want a fizzy, fresh and fruity drink that is perfect for the holidays, this is for you!

4. Jingle Juice

Who needs cheap, frat-party jungle juice when you can make a fresh, tropical blend for your annual holiday party? This one is a little time consuming, but worthwhile!

5. Raspberry Cream Mimosas

I f*ckin love raspberries and I love champagne, so you bet I'm pumped to make this for the holiday season. One batch of this serves about four people (all for me???).

6. 'Jack Frost' Winter Cocktail

Apparently, this is supposed to be the holiday version of a piña colada, so if you like those you're guaranteed to like this too!

Coconut, pineapple juice, Blue Curacao, vodka (or rum)... YUM!

7. Kahlua Hot Chocolate

Yes, you read that right. A spiked hot chocolate to get through the long, winter months! You'll never be able to drink regular hot chocolate again.

8. Rumchata Eggnog

What would a holiday cocktail listicle be without an eggnog recipe? This is an easy, four-step recipe that might take 20 minutes max.

9. Candy Cane Shooters

On the night I celebrated my 21st birthday, I took a vodka shot that honestly tasted like mint mouthwash. Personally, I love anything mint and who is going to complain about their breath tasting a little bit more fresh?

This shot includes peppermint chocolate truffle, white chocolate liquor and some half-and-half.

10. Moscow Mules

If you're not too adventurous and just want something simple for the holidays, I recommend a Moscow Mule! Traditionally made with vodka, lime juice and ginger beer, this classic cocktail is surely going to be a hit at your holiday celebrations. And you get to drink them out of a pretty copper mug, how aesthetically pleasing is that?

Happy holidays! Remember to drink responsibly and NEVER, EVER drink and drive!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
