It’s almost time to ring in 2017, and hopefully you’re welcoming the new year in style. Champagne is definitely a popular choice for a New Year’s Eve toast, but if you’re looking for something different (or just aren’t a fan of bubbly), we’ve got you covered.
If you’re hosting a party make a big-batch punch.
It’s more budget friendly and everyone can serve themselves instead of making messy mixed drinks. Combine equal parts vodka, cranberry juice and lemon-lime soda for a fruity cocktail that everyone will love.
If you’re pregaming for a party, try Jell-O shots.
They’ll make you feel like you’re back in college again and will be a super fun way to get the party started!
If you’re staying in to watch Ryan Seacrest, try red wine sangria.
It’s super easy to make, so whip up a pitcher for you and your BF to sip on while you wait for the big countdown. Check out this simple recipe from the Minimalist Baker.
If you’re bored with regular Champagne, try turning it into a bubbly cocktail.
Mix prosecco, cava or Champagne with pomegranate juice or add a scoop of raspberry sorbet to your bubbly for a sweet sipper.
If you don’t like liquor, try a beer cocktail.
Make a refreshing shandy by mixing light beer with lemonade or blood orange soda, or add some Fireball into a hard cider.
Happy New Year!
