Whether you need some drink recipes for your next holiday party, or are just looking for a way of dealing with all the family and friends this Christmas, here are some adult drink recipes that will make your holiday a lot merrier.

Candy Cane Cocoa


• 4 cups of milk
• 3 squares of 1 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped
• 4 peppermint candy canes, crushed
• 1 cup whipped cream
• 4 small peppermint candy canes
• 1 shot of favorite whiskey

In a saucepan, heat milk until hot, but not boiling. Whisk in the chocolate and the crushed peppermint candies until melted and smooth. Pour hot cocoa into four mugs, and garnish with whipped cream. Serve each with a candy cane stirring stick.

Homemade Eggnog


• 6 eggs
• 1 cup of sugar
• 3/4 cup of brandy
• 1/3 cup of dark rum (or bourbon)
• 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
• 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
• 2 cups of whipped cream
• 2 cups of milk

Refrigerate all the liquids and get them very cold before you make the drink. Beat the eggs at medium speed until they’re very frothy. Gradually add the sugar, vanilla and nutmeg as you continue beating. Now turn the mixer off and stir in the whipping cream, milk, brandy and rum. Chill it until you’re ready to serve. It’s best to keep it chilled at all times. Garnish each individual serving with the nutmeg sprinkled on top and a cinnamon stick.

The non-alcoholic version is exactly the same, except you leave out the alcohols. You can add rum flavoring if you want that taste.
