There is nothing quite like facing the chill in the air armed with something nice and toasty in your cup. Now, for this java junkie, during the day this time of year you'll most likely find me sipping on a Peppermint Mocha, but come evening, I'm all about the boozy holiday drinks. Bwah! I mean, mama needs something special to help her get through all the holiday mayhem.

Ten Boozy Drinks to Make for the Holidays

I have parties to plan, a tree to put up and presents to wrap. I know you fellow busy moms know exactly what I'm talking about. This time of year can get so hectic, but I always try to relax with my honey when I can, sip on a tasty cocktail and talk about how blessed we are to be enjoying another holiday season together! On that note, I thought I would round up a few of my favorite boozy holiday drinks for you!


White Hot Chocolate Peppermint Cocktail

Hot chocolate is a classic cozy winter beverage already, so why not dress it up with some white chocolate and peppermint and vanilla vodka? Just thinking about sipping this warm beverage by the cozy fire makes this mom super happy.
