We're feeling the festive spirit as of late—and while we want to live in the moment and soak up all things Thanksgiving, we're getting a bit of a head start when it comes to our holiday libations with a few super-fun recipes we recently discovered at the Momtrends Holiday Blogger event.

While sipping on delightfully delicious POM Wonderful cocktails, we mingled with blogger friends, met with brands, and scoped out the latest and greatest must-haves for the 2015 holiday season. Seriously, if you want to know what to wear, what to gift, and what to do this December, just head on over HERE for the #MTHoliday low-down.

In the meantime, while you're reading, shake things up tonight with one or two (or, you know, all!) of these fabulous spiked sippers.

The POMosa
½ oz. POM juice
1 glass Prosecco (or sparkling cider if going for a mocktail)

Combine, and voila! (Personally, this is my fave. I'm a sparkly kind of gal—especially around this time of year! Also, if I'm doing the prep work, I need a cocktail that requires minimal ingredients!)

1 oz. POM Cherry juice
1 1/2 oz. light rum
½ oz. fresh lime juice
¾ oz. simple syrup
Mint leaves

Grind mint leaves in lime juice and simple syrup. Add crushed ice, cherry juice, and rum. Top with a splash of soda. Garnish with mint.

The Pomtini
1 oz. POM Juice
1 ½ oz. vodka
1 ½ oz. grapefruit juice
½ oz. lime juice
½ oz. simple syrup

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour and strain. Serve with a spiralized orange rind.
