Holiday Party Drinks: 5 Celebratory Cocktail Recipes from GigMasters Bartenders

Terri Zimmer


Spread good holiday cheer with fun, festive signature drinks and cocktails. Hire a bartender for your holiday party. A great bartender will allow you to enjoy your own party with less stress. As China Moon, the owner of Bartender 608 Intoxicologists from Madison WI says, "Be a guest at your own party."  

A pro-pourer will help raise your hosting-game with memorable and delicious custom cocktail recipes. Signature drinks are a great way to stand out, while simplifying your planning. 

“Utilizing feature drinks streamlines the execution of your event and also makes it easier to estimate supplies,” advises Brian Zachau from Liquidmotion Bartenders. “Batching your specialty drink, by premeasuring multiples of each serving, will allow you to make drinks at a faster pace and maintain consistency.”

Pin these amazing cocktail recipes for your next party. But, please, drink, serve, and enjoy alcoholic beverages responsibly! 

1. AntiFreeze 

Want a party that's un-rememberable? Start with shots (only after assigning designated drivers, naturally). 


2. A French 75

This classic cocktail has simple ingredients, but tastes complex. Easy AND classy. 


3. Elph Knocks Out Leprechaun

Creamy, minty, and pretty to look at...that Leprechaun never stood a chance.
