We love a good glass of bubbly, especially during the holidays, but this historic recipe is the best—and easiest—way we know to make Champagne a little more exciting. Our recipe comes from top San Francisco bartender and Liquor.com advisory board member Jacques Bezuidenhout.
Legendary bartender and Liquor.com advisory board member Dale Degroff’s uncle Angelo actually created this delicious recipe for Eggnog. It calls for a potent base of both bourbon and rum. Fortunately, you don’t need to be family to make a big bowl of it.
Unexpected guests show up at the door? No need to stress out. Just throw together this delicious concoction, which can be made in a few minutes and doesn’t require any exotic ingredients. It’s so good you’ll make it all winter long.
What do you pair with gingerbread men and icebox cookies? Dessert cocktails, of course! Try this chocolaty recipe, which mixes mint-flavored Baileys with hot chocolate and fresh whipped cream. The garnish is, naturally, crushed candy canes and a mint leaf!
This decadent and historic punch could make the hottest day of summer feel like Christmas. But the holidays are, of course, when it tastes best. Our recipe, which comes from award-winning author and Liquor.com advisory board member David Wondrich, calls for a decadent mix of rum, cognac, eggs, spices, and hot milk. You can go to the gym in January!
For a truly elegant night of holiday entertaining, mix up this classic Martini recipe that is served at London’s famed Dukes Hotel, where James Bond creator Ian Fleming was a regular. (For the record, the bartenders at the Dukes stir their Martinis.)
You can’t go wrong with this delectable hot cocktail. We even scored rum expert Wayne Curtis’ personal recipe that he makes for friends and family. The best part is that you can prepare the batter way ahead of time, and then all you need to do to serve is add a spoonful of it to a glass with some rum and hot water.
