Holiday hosting can be some of the most rewarding, stressful work for families all around Jacksonville. Everyone has a role when guests come over for a dinner party. Someone plays bartender, another person cooks and the rest are entertainers. If you’re in charge of cocktails this year, we have a few boozy drink recipes to keep the party going all night long.
Apple Cider Spritz
We can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t fall in love with this easy-to-sip holiday cocktail. Sweet apple cider teams up with crisp Prosecco and Aperol to deliver a strong punch (day or night.)
⅓ cup apple cider
⅓ cup Prosecco
1 shot Aperol
Splash of club soda
Dash of allspice seasoning
Honeycrisp or Granny Smith apple slices, for garnish
Fill a glass with ice and mix the cider and Aperol inside. Top with the Prosecco and club soda. Garnish with a sprinkle of allspice and a few apple slices. You can thank us later. Enjoy!
Spiced Cranberry Moscow Mule
This just might be our favorite upgrade to one of America’s most popular cocktails. For holidays synonymous with casual day drinking, this Mule fits the bill.
2 shots vodka
Juice of a lime
⅓ cup cranberry juice
Splash of spicy ginger beer (regular ginger beer is great, too)
Cranberries and mint sprigs, for garnish
Shake the first three ingredients together with ice. Top with ginger beer and the garnishes. Serve chilled and drink responsibly.
Fall Fig Sangria
Rosé isn’t just for summer, guys. We put everyone’s favorite pink wine in the spotlight yet again to create this outrageously good holiday sangria. You’ll be hooked (don’t say we didn’t warn you.)
750mL dry Rosé (think Whispering Angel)
1 cup blackberry brandy
2 cups berry seltzer (regular is a good substitute)
2 plums, sliced
1 cup figs, sliced
½ cup blackberries
1 orange, sliced
2 Honeycrisp apples, sliced
Combine all the ingredients in a large pitcher on the morning of your party. Let all of that fruit soak up the boozy wine and brandy. When the guests begin to arrive, pull out of the fridge and pour individually over ice. Don’t forget to scoop some yummy fruit into each cup!
