Our list of fun cocktail recipes can all be made easily in your Almond Cow and can be made into mocktail versions if you prefer to veto the booze. Whether you're hosting a party or just chilling at home…these cocktails will leave you feeling 'lit' in the best way. Let's dive in!
Cranberries always add a festive touch to any seasonal recipe, and this Cranberry Gin Fizz is incredibly delicious. It combines flavors of orange, pomegranate, and cranberry for a tasty way to ring in the new year. It's also naturally sweetened with a touch of maple syrup. Drop in a few extra cranberries on top for a delightful garnish!
Nothing warms the heart and soul like a piping mug of Hot Buttered Rum by a crackling fire. This is the perfect beverage to make if you're having a low-key New Year's Eve at home. Our version is delightfully creamy and vegan thanks to the addition of CocoCash Milk and Vegan Butter. It's full of warm and cozy flavors thanks to cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and spiced rum. However, you can omit the rum to make an equally delicious mocktail. You'll want to make this classic cocktail again and again.
If you're hosting or attending a New Year's brunch, this is the best way to switch up the traditional mimosa! There are also plenty of winter pears that are in season during the colder months. This recipe combines ripe pears, lemon, fresh ginger, vanilla extract, and champagne for a refreshingly juicy cocktail. Pair it with our Vegan & Gluten-Free Crepes for the ultimate brunch menu!
Tequila isn't just a summertime spirit - especially when combined with apple cider and a cinnamon sugar rim. This recipe is an ideal way to change up the traditional margarita and put a seasonal spin on it! It would be the perfect cocktail to serve at your New Year’s Eve bash. You could also add a sprig of rosemary or top it with some cranberries to make it even more lively!
Our Spiced Citrus Punch is the perfect option if you need to make a big batch of something delicious to drink for a party or event. It's full of rich flavors that will satisfy everyone's palette! The addition of allspice dram gives it an extra special kick, with flavors reminiscent of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Garnish with an orange slice, cinnamon stick, or star anise, and toast to the new year!
