6 Festive Cocktails for NYE
Greyhound Drink by Colleen of The Food Blog
“I knew that I wanted to use freshly squeezed pink grapefruit, and I also wanted fresh lime juice and ginger. I also wanted bubbles. Ginger ale was perfect. Just enough sweetness, lovely ginger flavor, and bubbles for days.”
Spiked Canadian Hot Chocolate by Amanda of Peppers and Pennies
“An all-Canadian cocktail for winter, this delicious Spiked Canadian Hot Chocolate, boasting Canadian Whiskey and a touch of mint. It’s the perfect treat after a day of adventuring in the snow!”
Lychee Green Tea Fizz by Samatha of My Kitchen Love
“This cocktail is light, bubbly, and has the perfect amount sweetness. Sweet lychee is a wonderful flavor to pair with crisp green tea and some bubbles. Taking a sip of the fizzy sweet flavors is refreshing and grounding at once.”
Dirty Chai Eggnog by Bernice of Dish ‘n’ the Kitchen
“It never ever occurred to me to combine both tea and coffee into one fabulously caffeinated beverage. Best of all I learned that you can make eggnog by the glassful. However, this is BAD NEWS because it makes real eggnog way too accessible.”
Amaretto Cranberry Shrub Cocktail by Gabrielle of Eye Candy Popper
“The beauty of shrubs is that it’s a syrup that can be used in any drink combination, with or without alcohol. You can pair it with sparkling water, just like you can pair it with white wine, sparkling wine, liquor, or even beer.”
Dragon Fruit Mojito by Evelyne, that is me!
“How many of you have tried a dragon fruit before? As exotic as the dragon fruit looks, the taste is relatively mild so you will not get a scary surprise. Try something new, add a little ‘exotic’ to your life in the New Year!”
HAPPY NEW YEAR from CulturEatz
I hope you have enjoyed this Festive Cocktails round-up and perhaps you will try one, two…or all six of these cocktail options between now and the New Year. Happy New Year to all, may all your desires come to delicious fruition!
These are so festive and inventive and beautifully photographed and presented. Makes me want to ring in the New Year again! Cheers, Evelyne!
They are a great selection. Cheers and Happy New Year Debra 🙂
These all look ama-za-zing!! Happy 2018! <3
Thanks Gingi and Happy 2018 to you!
It is frigid outside and drafty inside, so I’d go for the hot chocolate, but they all look like fun, festive options! Happy, happy New Year to you!!!!
I am not even sure the word frigid has enough emphasis lol, same here. The hot chocolate is an all-around winner it seems 😀 Happy 2018 Liz!!!
These cocktails are quite original. I have never had dragonfruit but I do love a good mojito… I wouldn’t be opposed to trying your drink!
Thank you Francesca, and good choice (not because it is mine lol) on the mojito. This is a fun variation.
So you inspired us for our new years bevvy and today I’ll be making the shrub for the Amaretto Cranberry Shrub Cocktail!! Thank you for posting that recipe, I’m excited to try it!!! Happy New Year’s in advance, my friend!! XOX
My pleasure, let me know how it turns out. Happy New Year and let’s plan to meet up soon in 2018 d00d ! XOXO
There are some fab cocktails here! I’d love to try the eggnog as we had some homemade eggnog at a restaurant on Christmas Eve and it was amazing. Happy New Year to you all!
I honestly can’t remember having an eggnog. The store stuff is terrible. I should make some. Happy New Year Gingey!
Love the look of all of these but I’m particularly drawn to the spiked hot chocolate and the lychee green tea fizz.
Everyone seems to love that hot chocolate lol. But yes I agree the lychee one is right for the stroke of twelve:-) Happy New Year!
I’d have to go for the Spiked Canadian Hot Choc – it’s snowing here in the UK and I could do with warming up!
Seems to be a favorite. Wow snow in the UK. We are in the -30C with the wind factor all week. We all need warming up 🙂
Seeing as how much of Canada is in the deep freeze right now (it was -31C this morning), I’ll take the Spiked Canadian Hot Chocolate. It sounds delish. Happy New Year to you!
OMG Doreen, I know, like-30s all week they say! Happy New Year to you too!
Looks so tasty! Inspiring post to get me ready for NYE. Thanks for including my Fizz!
Thank you, Samantha, for sharing, I love lychee! Happy New year!
great ideas! Happy New Year!
Thanks and Happy New Year!
They are all beautiful, but I have to vote for the Hot Chocolate! Yum!
Good choice, especially if it is a winter wonderland 🙂
wow a cocktail heaven! Cheers!
Happy New Year!
I know, I want a glass of each 😀 Happy New year Angie!
