They don’t say it’s the most wonderful time of the year for nothing. With four weeks of freedom before the Spring Semester starts, ’tis the season to let loose–whether it’s with your old buddies from high school, your family, or your annoying cousins, sip on (or chug) some of these holiday themed drinks to exponentially increase the fun.


Bailey’s is the best alcohol ever for Christmas drinks. Mix the caramel flavored Bailey’s with eggnog while opening presents on Christmas morning, or add the regular kind to hot chocolate or coffee to make your morning a little more interesting.

Hard Apple Cider

If you want something a little stronger than Bailey’s but still want some holiday flavors, apple cider (hot or cold) with spiced rum does the trick.

Liquid Candy Canes

There’s nothing more Christmas-y than candy canes, and though mixing up a Candy Cane Cocktail duplicates the flavor and goes down smoothly, but it doesn’t taste nearly as good coming back up. To make one, mix equal parts Creme de Cacao, Peppermint Schnapps and creme.


Rumplemintz tastes like Christmas. Mix it up with some white chocolate liqeur (like Godiva’s) and you’re good to go. Watch out though–this cocktail will sneak up on you if you’re not careful and you’ll be doing things that will undoubtedly land you on Santa’s naughty list.
