Cocktails That Will Be a Hit at Your New Year’s Eve Party

If you are ringing in the New Year with your loved ones, you need cocktails to set the mood and get the party going. However, this time, instead of regular ones, delight your guests with new flavors to kickstart the celebration. These fun and festive cocktails will be a hit at your New Year’s Eve party.

Top Tip: Serve a smaller batch of the non-alcoholic version of the same drink if you have any expecting mamas coming to your NYE party. Serve it in a similar glass to make them feel included. However, decorate the mocktails slightly differently to ensure there isn’t a mishap at the party (like the to-be mom drinking the alcoholic drink by mistake).

1. Sparkling Pomegranate Punch

Start the New Year’s Eve celebration with this refreshing and fruity punch. Mix in the pomegranate juice, apple cider (optional), sparkling rosé, lemon or orange juice (the hint of citrus livens it up), and simple syrup for a sweet and tangy flavor. Serve it with lemon wedges and rosemary to amp up the presentation. 

2. Frozen Hot Chocolate Martini

This cocktail is super easy to make, as everything has to be blended in a processor until you get a smooth texture. You only need some hot cocoa mix, milk, vanilla vodka, and ice. Top it off with mini marshmallows or whipped cream, and sip the night away.

4. Dumpster Fire Cocktail

Agreed, the name does not sound fascinating, but the cocktail sure tastes fantastic. This elegant cocktail is made with gin, Cointreau, lime, lemon juice, Angostura bitters (or Campari), and an orange twist for that citrusy flavor.

5. Mulled Wine

Mulled Wine is a classic cocktail that is warm and cozy on a cold winter night. This inviting drink has a beautiful aroma and taste. Just simmer red wine, mulling spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves), orange slices, and sugar to make this at home.

6. Champagne Punch

This five-ingredient champagne punch is the ideal cocktail to serve at your New Year’s Eve party. Mix champagne, ginger beer, cranberry juice, grapefruit juice, and rum in a bowl. If you want the taste on the sweeter side, use pomegranate juice instead of cranberry.

7. Rompope

Rompope is a famous Mexican cocktail. It is sweet, creamy, and has the warm flavors of spices. If you or your guests are eggnog fans, then Rompope will be a hit too.

8. Cranberry Aperol Spritz

This bubbly and refreshing cocktail requires Aperol, cranberry juice, Prosecco, and orange juice. Top it with cranberries, an orange slice, and a rosemary sprig for an eye-catching cocktail your guests will surely be drawn towards.
