Robin Redbreast

Vodka , Modern Classics

If you’d like to make your drink a festive shade of red for the holidays, try this vodka cocktail with blood orange. "Blood oranges have a slightly different flavor than the oranges we are most accustomed to," says Kevin Denton, the national mixologist for Pernod Ricard. "The main thing to remember is that orange juice, particularly anything not freshly squeezed, is much more mellow in cocktails that we think it’s going to be."

Nothing says winter holidays like a pine-themed drink. This one by bartender Carmen Polcyn at Chicago’s Bar Toma also utilizes cranberries and lemon, making it even more festive. Sip the nonalcoholic version all day, or make the cocktail at night for a cool, yet warming, seasonal tipple.
