If you haven’t already hosted your holiday celebration yet, this article is for you! As one of the best NH fine dining restaurants, the team at Stella Blu knows how to host a successful event that has people talking.  One of the easiest things you can do for your event is to create a signature cocktail to offer your guests.  This one simple element can add excitement and flair to any gathering.  Here are a few ideas to get you started:



No matter what the season or the occasion, sangria is one of the most customizable drinks.  Whether white or red, this fruity cocktail is the perfect refresher for any crowd.  This holiday season, try creating a prickly pear sangria by combining pear, apple, cinnamon, and a twist of champagne.


Spiked Eggnog

No holiday gathering is complete without the incorporation of eggnog.  Whether you serve it plain or add some rum, this beverage is perfect for chilly winter nights.  Don’t forget to add a dash of cinnamon!


Cranberry Hot Toddy

If you’re looking for something on the lighter side, this warming blend of cranberries and vodka will hit the spot.  Easy to prepare in bulk, warm cranberry juice combined with cranberry vodka, lemon, honey, and cinnamon are a festive addition.

Cranberry Mimosas

If you’re planning a brunch, you’ll need something a bit lighter to serve your guests.  Mimosas are always a brunch favorite.  However, replace the orange juice with cranberry, add a few berries for decoration, and you’ll have yourself a perfect holiday cocktail for the earlier hours!


Peppermint ‘Tini

Another traditional holiday must, candy canes.  This martini incorporates crushed candy canes, white chocolate liqueur, vodka, peppermint schnapps, chocolate, and heavy cream to create the liquid version of peppermint bark!


Dreaming of a White Christmas Margarita

A twist on the traditional margarita, the white Christmas version includes all the regular goods with the addition of unsweetened coconut milk.  Rim your glass in shredded coconut and add a cranberry garnish for a festive twist sure to please any crowd.
