Keep the Party Going with Less-Boozy Cocktails
When the holiday party circuit heats up, over-imbibing can have tiresome side effects. Take a low-key approach by serving festive cocktails with little (or no) alcohol
Citrus Flower by Haus
This 15 percent ABV libation is the cool, new drink to sip at every California dinner party. Pair its crisp, lemony, elderflower flavors with bubbles of your choice (we’re #TeamProsecco) and a squeeze of fresh citrus.
2018 Chenin Blanc Petillant Wine, Shell Creek Vineyard, Paso Robles by Broc Cellars
Imagine a wine with the celebratory nature of Champagne but without the formality (and the price tag). Try a pétillant naturel (French for “naturally sparkling”) wine, like this fizzy, festive California pét-nat with a casual 11 percent ABV.
Gift Box Trio by Seedlip
Forgo the holiday party hangover altogether with this non-alcoholic spirit, which still delivers the depth of flavor found in your usual bar order. This seasonal box includes the floral, earthy Garden 108, citrusy Grove 42, and Jamaican allspice berry and cardamom duo Spice 94.
Ruby Spiced Apple Shrub by Girl Meets Dirt
Dolgo crabapples and heirloom King apples are juiced and finished off with star anise, cinnamon, and black pepper for a warming, winter-approved cocktail base that can be tailored to suit your desired ABV.
