Just because your Christmas sweater is ugly doesn’t mean your drink has to be. The holiday season is all about making things cooler than they are. You put lights outside your house and you wear goofy seasonal stuff, what’s stopping you from dressing up your drinks? We’ve found some awesome things to make your cocktails that much more festive.
 
Frozen Cool Whip
Just freeze Cool Whip and use a cookie cutter (any shape works) to create this garnish. Throw one in your mug after you spike your hot chocolate.
 
Snowy Raspberries
Add raspberries rolled in sugar to drinks for a fruity twist. Thread them onto a toothpick and stick them on the side of your guests cocktail.
 
Roasted Marshmallow Skewers
Bring a little campfire to your cocktail. Roast some marshmallows and add them to your hot boozy beverage. It looks good, and tastes even better.
 
Licorice Wheels
This is the easiest garnish we’ve got. Just cut a slit in a licorice wheel and pop it on the side of a glass, then drink.
 
If you have other ideas, share the wealth. We are always looking for easy new ways to get festive.
