Naughty but Nice Christmas Cocktail

Yes my friends, I’m back with another Christmas cocktail recipe. You know how much I love trying out and mixing up new cocktails especially for the holiday season. In fact, I have an entire blog post dedicated to my favorite Christmas cocktails. There are over 20 recipes and they cover everything from punches to mulled wine to martinis, and so much more. You can check that out here.

Today, I’m thrilled to be adding this Naughty but Nice Christmas Cocktail to that list. I wanted to create a holiday cocktail recipe that would work with a few different types of alcohol. I know that everyone has different preferences, so it’s nice to have a drink recipe that suits as many people as possible.

As you might know, I’ve been a big fan of whiskey and bourbon lately, so that’s what I used. I also tested this drink recipe with vodka, and it was equally as delicious. In fact, with the vodka, it kind of reminded me a of Moscow mule but more seasonal and festive!

No matter how you make this Christmas cocktail, it’s ends up being a delicious combination of flavors that taste and look perfectly seasonal. You’ll be feeling naughty but nice. It’s the perfect combo!

Let’s go over what you’ll need to try this recipe.

Naughty but Nice Christmas Cocktail Ingredients:

  • rye whiskey, bourbon, or vodka
  • orange juice
  • ginger syrup*
  • cranberry juice
  • club soda
  • ice
  • orange slices and fresh cranberries to garnish

*If you’re looking for ginger syrup, you can typically find it at the liquor store. However, I purchased mine on Amazon. Either of these options are great: Pratt Standard or Liber & Co.

    Couldn’t wait for the ginger syrup so I used my favorite ginger beer, Bundaberg. And I’ve recently decided I love him, but not just any gin – Aviation gin. Really awesome drink!
