The month of December is a time for laughing, mingling, and spending time with loved ones. There’s no better way to enjoy the company of friends and family than with a refreshing citrus beverage. Whether you choose to enjoy these festive drinks with or without the alcohol, they’re sure to quench any winter thirst you may have!

Holly Jolly Citrus Cocktail

Bright citrus flavors from clementine and blood orange juice pair with notes of ginger to create the base of this beverage. Vodka and elderflower liqueur serve as the “holiday spirits” in this drink with pomegranate arils and fresh thyme as a festive garnish. 

Sparkling Cider and Cara Cara Orange Punch

Cara Cara fruit, of the navel orange variety, add their sweet and mildly tangy flavors to this orange punch recipe. The citrus fruit juice is joined with sparkling cider and brandy, then poured into a glass rimmed with sugar and crystallized ginger. This punch is the perfect drink for a crowd when served in a punch bowl near cups with a ladle.

Winter Sangria

Winter Sangria

Fresh sliced oranges, cinnamon sticks, cloves, and cranberries make this the perfect winter drink as they all come together to create that warm and familiar winter flavor. Swap out the red wine for non-alcoholic sparkling cider to make this a kid-friendly mocktail. 


Which winter beverage are you going to whip up first?
