Dainty New year cocktails to paint your heart red and white


New Year’s Eve is drawing closer, which means it’s eventually time for glitz and sparkles, celebrations and, of course, booze. We all agree that New Year parties and their themed cocktails are always the best. And if you plan on throwing a New Year bash at your home to amaze your friends and families, you can try out the recipes of some of the best New Year cocktails to make your party magnificent.   

Simple and elegant Festive cocktails to make at home  

If you want to startle your party guests with New Year cocktails, it’s time to whip up some of the best cocktails recipes at home. We have compiled a special list of holiday booze that is incredibly easy to prepare and follow easy recipes you can stir up in a minute.   

It includes:  

  • Cranberry Mimosas  
  • Grinchy Punch  
  • Pecan Pie Martini  
  • Caramel Snickerdoodle Martini  

The most versatile cocktail one can consume before and after a meal, as a snack or a dessert, is “Cranberry Mimosas”, which packs a fruity punch with the right amount of booze. Although mimosas are often associated with brunch, these festive variations are also excellent for an after-dinner beverage. To elevate your Thanksgiving dinner, serve these cranberry drinks alongside it and get ready to shower with compliments. But if you are planning something fun and green that will resemble a wreath, then “Grinchy Punch” must be your choice. It’s quirky to look at and tastes even better, which even your fussiest guests will like. Are you an excellent cook? Who wants to surprise everyone at the party with your culinary skills? Then this dessert cocktail hack will save you plenty of time. Every party meal should include a cocktail and must end on a sweet note, and that is why the perfect dessert with a touch of alcohol can serve both purposes. Our top favourites in dessert cocktails include Pecan Pie Martini and Caramel Snickerdoodle Martini. They taste the same as the classic desserts but in the form of a cocktail.
