Gingerbread Martini recipe from All Recipes is festive and delicious. The recipe calls for ginger and vanilla liquors as well as coffee flavored rum but you may like it with coffee-flavored liquor, instead. Rimming the glass with crushed ginger snaps is a decadent touch.
this recipe from Food Viva is a safe bet. Cognac and Amaretto go perfectly together and taste like the holidays. Garnish with citrus zest and you are set!
this delicious recipe from Liquor.com. Garnish with citrus rind or raspberries to really send it over the top, like the first photo in this post from Beverage Events!
Candy Cane Cocktail from Food Network. You can use vanilla vodka instead of vanilla rum or even skip the rum altogether for a somewhat lighter drink. With the white chocolate liquor and peppermint schnapps, you probably won't miss it!
Bolshoi Basil cocktail from Marie Claire. The basil adds a unique flavor and gorgeous color. For my holiday party I will also be adding cranberries to garnish for a special Christmas touch.
And last but certainly not least, this flaming English Holiday Punch recipe from Esquire Magazine will certainly wow your guests! This particular recipe is actually the writer Charles Dickens' own recipe and uses Cognac and rum. More traditional Holiday Punches call for a bottle of dry red wine, as well. Be careful with this flaming recipe as it is for seasoned professionals only.
