Crown Royal loves a good party. The blended Canadian whiskey is always down for a good time, and who can forget the darling bags each bottle comes in? This recipe for the Crown Jewel will light up any event!

"Crown JewelIngredients:1.5 oz Crown Royal Vanilla.5 oz amaro.25 oz simple syrup2 dashes aromatic bitters (optional)Garnish: brandied cherryMethod:Build all ingredients in a mixing glass and stir for 20-30 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass with one large cube of ice. Garnish with a brandied cherry."

If you’re more of a fancy martini person, Spa Girl’s Mistletoe Martini will have you kissing your glass out of adoration. This drink was easy to make and tasted simply amazing. The Prosecco gives it a nice bubbly kick, perfect for this time of year.

Hot chocolate is an absolute must this time of year, and Crystal Head Onyx Vodka is the perfect addition to your hot chocolate recipe. As an added bonus, check out the delicious Gingerbread Express martini I threw in for you as well — which is also made with Crystal Head Onyx! Granted, this drink will take a little longer to make, but I promise it’s worth it.

"Ho-Ho-Hot Chocolate2 oz. Crystal Head Onyx6 oz. Hot ChocolateBar Spoon Ancho Chili Powder (optional)Toasted MarshmallowMethod: Build Crystal Head Onyx and warm hot chocolate in a glass and stir.

Of course, what are the holidays without a rum-inspired drink? Ron del Barrilito rum has the perfect drink for all you rum fans — the Coquito. This drink yields two bottles, so you’ll have enough for yourself and whatever party you might attend! This one will also take a little more time than 5 minutes, but it’s worth it.

Ron Hacienda Santa Ana1/2 can of Condensed Milk1 can of Evaporated Milk1 can of Coconut Milk1 can of Coconut Cream1/2 spoon of Cinnamon Powder1/4 spoon of VanillaThis recipe will make TWO bottles worth of Coquito, each bottle being a standard 750ML size."

Short on time? Rancho La Gloria’s pre-made cocktails are fantastic! I’m a big fan of their strawberry margarita and their classic margarita flavor. These drinks come in glass bottles, cans, and even popsicles! While it may be cold where you are, if you’re living in a warmer area this time of year, the popsicles would be a fun addition to your holiday party!
