Holiday Drinks

Holiday Drinks are essential for your Holiday Entertaining! Some Holidays have traditional drinks, like Egg Nog goes hand in hand with Christmas, along with Hot Chocolate for the kids!  GREEN Beer is pretty standard for St. Patrick's Day, and Cinco de Mayo calls for a Margarita. (at least it calls ME for a Margarita!)

Special Events like Weddings, wouldn't be the same without the traditional Champagne Toast, which is also common on New Years Eve at midnight. Other drinks can go well paired with any Holiday or Observance.


Holiday Drinks - Information and Recipes from Holidays and Observances

Some of our Favorite Holiday Drinks, have their own annual Observance Day, or Month, set aside to honor our beloved drink!  Like who doesn't celebrate and appreciate National Margarita Day on February 22nd? 

Water is great as a drink, and can be improved by adding some lemon or fruits.  I love the idea of placing fruit in ice trays, filling with water and freezing and using in your drinks.  Like food, you can overindulge on the drinks filled with sugar, caffeine, and alcohol, so "moderation", is always great!

You can find all of the Annual Drink Observances below: (Over time, we will be doing a devoted page for each of these below that will include some Holiday Drink Recipes. We will also have a devoted page for each day of the year and linking them up here when completed.)

Coming Soon, we will also have an opportunity for you to share your favorite Holiday Drink Recipes.
