Best Booze to Stock Up On for the Holidays

In this post, we’re sharing all different types of festive drinks that use a variety of different alcohols. Thought we’d give you a quick list of what to stock up on before Thanksgiving!

  1. Vodka – great for chilled cocktails!
  2. Baileys – add a dash to your morning coffee or hot chocolate.
  3. Red Wine – when in doubt, bring red wine. Also great mulled or in sangria!
  4. White Rum – smooth drinking, great in iced cocktails.
  5. Champagne – you can always drink this plain, but it’s delicious on top of orange juice or apple cider.
  6. Fireball – if you’re into shots, this is our favorite Fall shot. It’s also great to sip on.
  7. Whisky – Add a shot of whisky to your hot chocolate. It’s the best thing ever.
  8. Amaretto – silky smooth deliciousness that’s so tasty in your morning coffee.
