Fun With Fruit

Add a fruity, festive touch to your cocktail with an orange-skin star and frozen cranberries. These garnishes look particularly pretty on (and in!) dark-hued drinks like an Old-Fashioned.

Thyme and Honeycomb

For a refreshing holiday cocktail, incorporate some natural flavors, such as honey and thyme, into a classic gin and tonic.

Ribbon Candy Martini

The holidays call for peppermint, so decorate your next Creme de Menthe martini with peppermint ribbon candy, found at specialty candy shops or online. The classic combo of red and green is a no-brainer!

Champagne on the Rocks

Champagne is the drink of choice during the holiday season. Add a stick of rock candy to "ice" your dry Brut and add a little sweetness to the mix.

Colorful Surprise

For an even bigger kick, use red, green or blue rock candy and tint your bubbly with festive colors. Added bonus: You'll feel like a kid again.

Pomegranate Spritz

Turn a cocktail into a spritzer by adding club soda. It's an easy way to lighten up any drink – in calories, alcohol and color. This beautiful, blushing drink is as pretty to look at as it is to drink.

Festive Ice Cubes

Freeze pomegranate seeds, cranberries or other complementary fruits into your ice cubes for a splash of color and added flavor.

Rosemary Finish

Aromatic rosemary is a great finish to a tart cocktail. Plus, it's easy to grow in a pot or in the ground, so you can always have some on hand.
