Santa’s Sleigh Cocktail

Wohoo! Happy December, everyone! Is anyone else as excited about the Christmas season as I am? I mean, it’s like full on Buddy the Elf type of situation. I just love it!

It’s just crazy that it is already December to me. Nebraska needs to get with the program, because it is going to be almost 60 degrees today! Call me crazy, but I am so ready for a nice, big snow storm. Yep, I’m crazy, but I love it! You better believe everyone will know my excitement when it finally snows and sticks to the ground.

With Christmas and holiday parties right around the corner, you need a good, easy, and fun cocktail to make everyone feel nice and warm inside! When I took my first sip of this Santa’s Sleigh Cocktail, I texted my husband and was like no way! I actually made a cocktail that I liked and it wasn’t a sangria! I was just pleasantly surprised. This Santa baby is so smooth it’s criminal. Trust me, you won’t even taste the alcohol in it! This could be a good or a bad thing…

What I love so much about drinks like this Santa’s Sleigh, besides how amazing it goes down, is that it is completely hassle free. All you have to do is pour all the ingredients into a pot or slow cooker and bring it up slowly to a nice and warm temperature. Your guests can ladle their own mug of Santa’s Sleigh, top it however they please and be ho, ho, ho happy. You don’t even have to bat an eye or break a sweat. PS: you can also make this in advance and reheat it for the next several days. Bonus points if you have Santa’s Sleigh stocked in your refrigerator.

This smooth, warm, mug of a cocktail will make you feel all the warm and fuzzies inside and get everyone around you in the Christmas spirit.

      About 8 servings! 🙂 It is also a great recipe that can be kept in the refrigerator and warmed up again when you need it.
