When you walk outside in the middle of December and there is not a speck of snow to be found, the last thing you’ll want to do is sip on a hot toddy for the holidays.
Some people are pretty upset about the fact that there will be no snow on Christmas, and we get that, but think about it this way: A mild winter means you can enjoy cocktails you’d usually have in the summer or spring.
This holiday season, skip the cup of cocoa and refresh yourself with some chilled cocktails instead. Don’t fight the weather, embrace it. Read on for three refreshing cocktails to drink during this mild winter.
The best thing about beertails is that they’re not associated with a specific season. Some may argue that a mimosa is too summery to enjoy during the holidays, but adding beer to the traditional recipe will make it a drink you can enjoy all throughout the year.
Chandon Rosé Granite
The Chandon Rosé Granite cocktail is a Champagne, floral slushie. In our opinion, it doesn’t get much more refreshing than that. Transform this recipe from a spring drink to a winter cocktail by swapping out the flower garnish with a mint sprig or a candy cane.
Rose Colored Glass
This recipe is a spin-off of the classic aperitif Champagne cocktail. Featuring citrus, spices, and Alsace Brut Rose, this concoction is another drink that you can enjoy any time of the year.
