Why These Cocktails

Throwing an easy New Year’s Eve party can still be a lot of work. If you just want to have friends over to celebrate, pretty much all you need is cocktails, some party hats and maybe some photo booth props.

Alcoholic New Year’s drinks are a fun way to ring in the new year. These aren’t just straight-up, basic cocktails. These are fun recipes that have interesting flavors and would be a festive treat to serve to anyone you are celebrating with.

While I generally stick to a Bourbon Mule when I make cocktails at home, on New Year’s Eve I step outside the box and do something a little more fun and exciting.
