If you're short on plans this weekend, we recommend gathering some friends for a festive night of tree decorating, gingerbread-cookie baking, cute crafting, and of course, seasonal-cocktail sipping. Not to knock the Netflix "me party" you had planned, but we've got two cocktails that are sure to change your mind.
Charm all of your guests with these sippers or enjoy one solo to truly get in the spirit of the season. Snowflake and cinnamon-stick stirrers optional — but encouraged.
