What better way to embrace the possibilities that this year will bring than by exploring the lovely world of essential cocktails? As we embark on the first month, let’s toast to new beginnings and exciting possibilities with one of these essential cocktails.
Whether you’re recovering from the holiday hustle or simply looking to refresh your bar menu for 2024, these libations are here to bring touch of flavor to your January days and nights.
January 1st marks National Bloody Mary Day—the perfect way to kick off the new year, especially if you indulged a little too much the night before. The Bloody Mary, renowned for its bold and zesty profile, has become a beloved classic in the world of cocktails. The Orange Paprika Monkey Mary can be made in batch making it easy to prep and serve to all your guests.
Join us in honoring National Whipped Cream Day on January 5 with a warming treat. While whipped cream is typically associated with desserts, why not elevate the celebration by incorporating it into a tasty cocktail? This white-chocolate Irish Coffee is topped with an espresso whipped cream that’s bound to knock your socks off.
If you’re in need of the perfect excuse to cozy up with something delicious, look no further. On National Hot Toddy Day (1/10) try this delicious recipe to celebrate the occasion. It has a simple twist, swapping out the classic whiskey for cognac instead. As we embark on the cold weather this month has to offer, this cocktail is a guarantee to warm you up.
After the holiday season that’s filled with cookies and sugar, adding something green into your
diet might be the way to start off the year strong. This refreshing and vibrant green cocktail is
crafted using a green bell pepper juice. While it might be unconventional, the veggie-forward
cocktail is the perfect balance of healthy and fun!
Not that anyone needs a special occasion to indulge in a sweet and rich cup of hot chocolate but, National Hot Chocolate Day seems like the perfect time to do so. Celebrate this winter-favorite on January 31 with a Diplo Mocha. The espresso brings out the decadent chocolate flavors that pairs perfectly with a touch of booziness from the rum.
