Today on IBC, I’m serving up 10 must-try Christmas cocktail recipes.

If you can believe it, Christmas is but a week away. Say what!? I have no clue where the first two weeks of December went. If you’re anything like me, you still have gifts to buy, oodles to wrap, and cookies to bake. Thankfully, somehow everything seems to always magically come together in the end, leaving time to sit back and enjoy the festivities with a cocktail in hand. That’s why today I thought I’d pull together 10 of my favorite Christmas cocktail recipes. Whether you and your guests prefer hot or cold, bourbon or vodka, creamy or fruity, there’s something in this collection for everyone! (Need tips on setting up a holiday bar cart?

Let’s shake up a few cocktails

White Christmas Martini
Anytime I share this White Christmas Martini on Facebook, all of you seem to love it. It’s made with vanilla vodka, white chocolate liqueur, and creme de cocoa. A coarse sugar garnish makes it sparkle.

Mulled Wine
This is my go-to recipe for Mulled Wine. Not only is it delicious, but it makes the house smell magical as it simmers on the stove or in a slow cooker.

Very Merry Ornamentini
Not only is this a delicious cocktail, but this Very Merry Ornamentini wins the award for best presentation. It’s served in a glass ornament and garnished with sugared cranberries.

Cherry Almond Cocktail
This creamy Cherry Almond Cocktail combines two of my favorite holiday flavors: cherry and almonds! They also pair wonderfully with my Chocolate Covered Spiked Cherries!

Bonus: Chocolate Covered Spiked Cherries
I know they aren’t a cocktail, but I had to include these Chocolate Covered Spiked Cherries. They are soaked in booze and then dipped in chocolate for the perfect spiked treat.
