Whether it be the super early sunsets or the general madness of the season, the holidays have the tendency to make a person extra thirsty for a nice, stiff cocktail. So obviously, I’m serving up a bunch of options to quench that thirst!
For most of these holiday cocktails, I dug deep back in the Apt34 archives to bring you the best of our adult beverage selection. Some are light and fizzy while others might satisfy your desire for the once-a-year-because-it’s-kinda-heavy type of cocktail. We dare you to pick just one.
LIGHT & FIZZY
If you’re looking for a fizzy delight, you’ll want to choose one (or several – who are we to judge?) of these little darlings. They’re light, delicious and perfect for a holiday gathering or New Year’s Eve.

Or perhaps you prefer your champagne a little spicy? This recipe adds cinnamon.
The Apartment 34 Sparkler is my signature New Year’s Eve drink!
BOOZY & WARM
If you prefer to reach for a margarita or perhaps a nice bourbon, we recommend sipping on one of the options below. Talk about warming up winter – these will definitely get the job done.
Take your Old Fashioned next level with this recipe.
The apple spice bourbon flip will definitely keep the cold at bay.
And now for what we like to consider the true holiday faves (aka those heavier options mentioned above). They’re creamy, decadent and damn delicious. Dessert in a glass if you will. Oh and we will.
Spiked hot chocolate. Need I say more?
Holiday cookie in liquid form. If you don’t chew, are calories involved??
I’d say this is like peppermint ice cream, in boozy liquid form. I approve.
What’s your poison of choice? All of the above? Yeah, same.
