giphySanta’s on his way. The tree is lit. Presents are wrapped. It’s time to drink. Here is a list of our favorite Christmas Eve cocktails (thanks to GourmetGiftBaskets.com)

Champagne Parfait CocktailThis drink is a perfect toasting cocktail. Take your favorite champagne (or any sparkling wine, Prosecco, Brut, etc), add a little bit of gin, any fruit liqueurs and fresh berries to create a delicious and beautiful drink. The different berries will float at different levels, hence the the parfait look.

La Vie En Rouge“Life in Red” mixes Grand Marnier, fresh cranberry juice, and fresh rosemary. Its bright flavor and fragrant aroma make a great after-dinner drink. Float a few cranberries in the glass for garnish.

Christmas Eve Hot ChocolateThe adult version of your favorite childhood drink. This recipe mixes coffee, chocolate and liquor. A perfect night cap.

Holiday SparklerIf you’re hosting a large party, this a great punch bowl recipe. With Cava, fresh mint, triple sec, lime juice and cranberry juice, it’s a bright and festive drink you can make the day before your party to let the flavors really develop. It also makes a great substitution for mimosas on Christmas Day!

Mulled WineAlso known as Glogg or gluwein, the spicy hot wine drink is perfect for a cold winter night. All you really need is dry red wine, port wine, Grand Marnier, and a bunch of oranges and some cinnamon sticks. Cook it up on the stove or even in a Crockpot to keep it warm throughout the evening.

Mistletoe MartiniA mix of chilled cranberry tea, orange and lemon juices, and vodka. A little bit of sugar cuts the tart flavors.

EggnogIs it even Christmas if there isn’t any eggnog? We don’t think so. Spike yours with bourbon or spiced rum for a smooth Christmas drink.
