One of the best parts of the holidays is tradition. My family loves doing those little things we look forward to every year: putting our baby shoes on the tree, opening our jingle jammies on Christmas eve, and drinking Bailey's while rewatching our Furber family classic movies.
My mother and I especially love cozy holiday beverages, because they always set the mood. Every year, we attempt to improve upon our classic recipes, with varying degrees of success. But, just for you, I've compiled a list of our very favorite holiday beverages here.
Take a scroll, and thank us later when you're kicked back with one of these elixirs and your 10th rewatch of The Holiday this season.
The Holiday Spritz
We love this wintery take on our favorite year-round beverage, the Aperol Spritz.

1 part sparkling cider
1 part prosecco

Spiked Hot Chocolate
This toasty drink always makes me think of my hometown tree lighting. It's cozy, warm, and the perfect thing to take the edge off while you run into people from high school.

Iced Eggnog Latte
This little concoction is meant to sipped while opening presents in your Jingle Jammies on Christmas morning.

Hot & Spicy Cider
I used to drink apple cider in Sun Valley, Idaho after skiing with my family all the time, and this is just a grown-up version of that.
