Our 7 Favorite Christmas Eve Drinks


The holidays are here again, and it’s time to enjoy that merry holiday cheer! So, what better way is there to be merry on Christmas Eve than with a festive holiday drink? You may be enjoying your drink at an elaborate family gathering, or with an elite group of friends. Or perhaps this Christmas Eve this year is specially planned for just you and your partner. However, no matter how you may choose to celebrate, whether your taste is for vodka, rum, bourbon or wine, you’ll be sure to enjoy one or more of our 7 favorite choices of Christmas Eve drinks below. 

Classic Christmas Eggnog

When thinking of the holiday season, Eggnog is always first to come to mind for a seasonal Christmas drink. Whether it be a virgin eggnog, or the kind with liquor, it makes for a jolly holiday drink. In fact, it wouldn’t be Christmas without it! Eggnog is almost always available pre-made at the local grocery store. However, if you want more of a traditional or old- fashioned taste, you may choose to create your own tasty and smooth bourbon and rum enhanced version of this delicious classic holiday drink!
