Baby, it’s cold outside, so why not come in, sit next to the fire and have a cup of gingerbread hot cocoa? It’s dairy and sugar-free but has holiday spices to warm you up.
Have you ever seen the disappointed look on a kid’s face when they hear they can’t have any heavenly smelling mulled wine? Never again! You can mull grape juice, y’all, and it’s delicious!
3. Easy Eggnog
If your vegan heart has mourned a life without holiday eggnog, the grief must stop now! This vegan eggnog checks all of the creamy, sweet and sippable boxes.
Why bother going to the coffee shop when you can make your own pumpkin spice latte at home? This version has all of that creamy lusciousness you crave without being unhealthy.
Regular old hot chocolate can have a seat — three upgraded versions have just taken the stage. Orange — when you’re feeling sassy. Peppermint — to wake you up. Thick Italian — it’ll lull you right to sleep.
Matcha is everywhere right now but have you tried it with white chocolate? OMG, this is the flavor combination we didn’t know that we needed! In a dairy-free hot chocolate, it is to die for!
People aren’t surprised by apple cider simmering in a slow cooker. Pull the old switcheroo and try spiced pear juice instead. It’s a heavenly concoction that will become your new holiday tradition.
Sing it with me! “I’m dreaming of a white…mojito. Not like the ones I used to know.” Coconut milk makes these lovely little guys white while the pomegranate and mint make them festive.
To make any holiday gathering a little more fun, pass around a tray of vanilla cranberry mimosas. They are fragrant and bubbly and will charm the pants off of anyone lucky enough to get one.
Ah, the smell of chestnuts is in the air while your icy blue Jack Frost cocktail nips at your nose. It’s a blue pineapple and coconut brew that packs a vodka and Curacao punch!
Yes, Virginia, it is possible to turn a tropical rum punch into a holiday cocktail by adding ginger beer, grenadine and cranberries. So take off that lei and put on that Santa hat. It’s Christmas!
Okay, fess up. Who hasn’t eaten a finger full of Nutella straight out of the jar? Good thing this homemade vegan hazelnut liqueur will end all of that. And I’ll use a glass too.
Rosemary simple syrup? Didn’t you go to high school with her? No, silly, that’s a delicious ingredient in this festive cranberry margarita. Amazing. I thought Rosemary sat behind Margarita in social studies.
When mulling cider, most people choose a cinnamon-forward recipe. This version, however, opts for maple to be the star and wowsa! Does it ever taste great!
Rumor has it that orange and chocolate are an item and it’s serious. The tart citrus of the orange brings out the naughty sweetness of the chocolate and frankly the whole thing’s getting pretty hot.
Celebrating the holidays with a glass of boozy eggnog is a festive must. This vegan version has all of the rich and creamy indulgence you’d expect without a single egg in sight.
Sure, a glass of milk will help Santa to wash down his cookies but wouldn’t you be more likely to score better presents if you left him some Christmas sangria instead? Just sayin’.
Chai and orange and whiskey all play so well together in this cocktail. It’s a sweet, smoky, warm-spiced dream. It would be a shame to celebrate Christmas with out them.
Getting up early with the kids on Christmas morning just got a little easier thanks to the promise of Christmas Morning Mimosas. It turns out that cranberry and champagne were made for opening presents.
Did someone say that there’s a veganized recipe for Bailey’s Irish Cream? It’s true! Cashew and coconut cream have once again triumphed over dairy! Christmas just got a whole lot merrier.
Warm up this winter with a blackberry gin and jam cocktail. The splash of St. Germain highlights the sweetness of the berries, creating a sophisticated cocktail you won’t stop talking about.
22. Spiced Rum Punch
If only taking care of every holiday detail were as easy as making this spiced rum punch. Just three ingredients and nutmeg for garnish and that’s it. Holiday cheers all around.
Who’s up for a Yule Mule? The beauty of this recipe is that you can make the cranberry-orange syrup ahead of time, so when the guests arrive, you’ll be all ready to play bartender.
Hypnotize your guests with some startlingly beautiful Blackberry Ombre Sparklers. They look professional but can easily be made by even the most hesitant bartending novice.
It’s easy to make your own Gluhwein — that German mulled cinnamon and clove-spiced holiday red wine. This version includes blueberries, which are a delightful surprise in the winter time.
If you aren’t familiar with Coquito, the boozy Puerto Rican eggnog, then you may need to reevaluate your priorities. This sweet and creamy holiday drink has had a vegan update you’ll adore.
27. Champagne Punch
Procrastinators unite! You don’t even have to start this five-ingredient holiday punch until your guests are pulling up in the driveway. The festive cheer will be ready by the time they walk in the door.
Ah, to be an adult at the holidays when you can enjoy your dessert over ice in a glass. This cocktail is a dead ringer for apple pie but leaves you feeling the Christmas spirit.
If Christmas joy had a flavor, this would be it. Spiced apple cider, tart cranberries, sweet and tangy oranges and ruby red wine — it’s all there and it’s all good.
30. Pumpkin Eggnog
If you’ve never tried Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice, you are in for a treat. It is the star of this vegan eggnog, bringing the creamy concoction over the top of delicious.
Searching for a festive holiday punch that the whole family can enjoy? Stop looking! This is it! The favorite flavors of apple cider, cranberries and oranges will please the whole bunch.
32. Eggnog Martini
Give that glass of eggnog a little nighttime sophistication by bumping it up to an eggnog martini. A little vodka and amaretto and a martini glass are all you’ll need to pull it off.
So many holiday drinks are served warm, here’s one that is nice and cold. How about a maple bourbon boozy milkshake? Feel like a kid and a grown-up all in one go.
