Our Favorite Holiday Cocktails with 2020 SIP Award Consumer Choice Winners

After the events of 2020, everyone could use a little extra holiday cheer this year. If ever there was perfect time to beef up your cocktail-making skills, it’s now! We’re sharing some of our favorite holiday cocktails and how you can make them at home using some of our SIP Award Consumer Choice Winners:

White Christmas Margaritas

Whether there’s snow on the ground where you live or you’re celebrating Christmas in 60-degree weather, these White Christmas margaritas are a must! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 ½ cups silver tequila (we suggest Familia Camarena Silver)
  • 1 can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • Ice
  • Rimmer (if you don’t have a rimmer, a lime wedge works just as well)
  • Coconut flakes or sugar for rimming the glass
  • Cranberries for garnish (optional)

This one is best blended, not shaken. Blend the first five ingredients (add enough ice until it’s the consistency of snow), then pour into a glass rimmed with either coconut flakes or sugar. Garnish with cranberries if desired. 

Santa Claus-mopolitan

Santa himself would be proud of this one. Here’s our twist on an old classic:

  • 1 cup vodka (use Polar Ice vodka or Polar Ice Arctic Extreme for an extra kick)
  • 1 ½ cups cranberry juice
  • ¼ cup triple sec (or our CC Winner Grandeza Orange Liqueur)
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • Cranberries for garnish
  • Sugar for rimming
  • Ice

Rim a martini glass with sugar. Combine the liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice and mix, then pour into the martini glass. Garnish with cranberries.

Jack Frosties

These icy blue cocktails are perfectly chilled and best enjoyed by a roaring fire. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup vodka  (We love the CC Winner Deep Eddy Lemon vodka)
  • 1 cup Prosecco
  • ½ cup lemonade
  • ½ cup blue curacao
  • Ice
  • Sugar for rimming

Rim a glass with sugar, then blend the other ingredients into a slushy consistency. 

White Sangria

This one is so simple you’ll feel like it’s cheating. The White Sangria made by Capriccio is a delicious pre-mixed cocktail that takes the guesswork out of bartending without taking out all the fun! Just pour it into a chilled pitcher, then add your choice of fruit for aesthetics.
