‘Tis the season for holiday cheer.

And what better way to celebrate than with some yummy new beverages this festive season?!

I’m usually partial to copious amounts of wine and plain old coffee and Baileys. And my husband swears by his tried and true ‘hot toddy’ favorite, Blueberry Tea (1 oz. Grand Marnier, 1 oz. Amaretto, hot orange pekoe tea).

But maybe it’s time to branch out this holiday season. I’ve called on a few of my fellow bloggers to help me get merry and bright this Christmas.

Peppermint Cookietini Cocktail, anyone?

Lisa over at Snappy Gourmet whipped up this gorgeous creation.

And the festive fun continues over at Snappy Gourmet. Appearing to be my long-lost soulmate, Lisa has also invented the Cinnamon Roll Eggnog, the Cookies ‘N Creamtini, and the Mississippi Mudtini.

And for the big finish, Snappy Gourmet gets downright decadent with the delightful hot toddy, Red Velvet Hot Chocolate!

Directions: Freeze coffee as ice cubes and toss in a cup of Baileys and vanilla vodka. Sounds Santa-approved to me!
