When it comes to planning a great holiday party, it often starts with a great cocktail list. While there were once days when we would resort to hosting with bottles of wine and vodka sodas, those days are now behind us. Well, kind of. While bottles of wine and vodka sodka’s are, of course, still welcome, we like to liven up our parties with a list of cocktails that leave an impression. Fortunately, some of our favourite alcohol brands have got us covered with inspiring recipes for any holiday occasion. Indulge in these 6 cocktail recipes by Patrón, Grey Goose and Bacardi.
