New Year’s Eve Cocktails to Clink When the Clock Strikes Midnight



Use 100% cranberry juice, not cocktail, for optimal results. The raspberry liqueur makes the cocktail sweet, so actual cranberry juice makes it sour.

Holiday Mimosa

It need a fine mesh strainer but not a cocktail shaker to make this festive bellini. A pasta strainer will do if you don't have a drink strainer.

Pear & Ginger Sparkler

Apple cider, pineapple juice, apricot nectar, and orange juice with cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom form a warm, delicious drink that smells great.

Pineapple Cider Wassail
