While the holidays are magical, everyone knows that things can get a bit…hectic sometimes with the gift-giving, the dinner planning, putting up your in-laws in your spare bedroom, trying to keep the kids from eating ALL the sugar cookies and bouncing off the walls. It’s a lot. So treat yo’self with one of these delightfully delicious and on-theme drink recipes (more than a few of which are safe for your gluten-free partygoers), and remember that in a few days it’s all going to be worth it.
1. Mint Grasshopper
This peppermint hot chocolate is all grown up.
2. Sparkling Cranberry Punch
This one is kid-friendly AND gluten-free so it’ll win at any party – but we won’t judge at all if you add a little champagne to yours to make it even better.
3. Mulled Wine
So classy. So holidays. So gluten free (just double check the wine before adding it).
4. Peppermint Cosmo
A peppermint drink might sound weird, but just trust us. You and your gluten-free loved ones will wonder where it’s been all your lives.
5. The Nut Cracker
Just yes. Moar please.

The classic cold-weather drink. It’s popular for a reason. Also totally gluten-free. Win-win-win.
7. Grown-Up Eggnog
Watch yourself around this. It’s seriously addicting and what other time of year do you drink eggnog anyway?
8. Cranberry Margaritas
You’ll want to keep drinking these with your gluten-free pals long after New Year’s.
9. Pomegranate Vanilla Sangria
Please get in my mouth faster thankyouverymuch. Just double-check that your red wine is gluten-free and you’ve got a drink the whole party will pine after.
10. Spiked Mexican Hot Chocolate
Hot chocolate is for kids. – said someone with zero imagination.
