Have I mentioned how much I love the holiday season? The answer is yes – I probably have about a million times already. I absolutely adore the holidays – starting at Thanksgiving, and extending to Christmas, then to New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day – and all the fun and festivities. Maybe it’s because I love any excuse to attend, or host a holiday party! There’s nothing better than getting together with a group of close friends and family to celebrate the season with fun, games, music, food, treats, and of course, coming up with holiday drink ideas!
Holiday meals, libations and cocktails are always the most delicious part of any holiday fest. But prepping holiday meals and gathering holiday drink ideas can take up valuable time. Because holiday parties require a lot of planning, don’t you want a way to simplify things and make your planning so much easier? And eliminate an extra trip to the liquor store? Sure you do!
Enter, Drizly. It’s the world’s largest alcohol marketplace, and the quickest, easiest way to shop for beer, wine and spirits for any occasion. They promise delivery in under 60 minutes. And I promise you, they deliver on that promise! I recently placed my first order from Drizly, and it was super simple and so efficient. I just went onto their website, entered my address, and browsed the local stores and their selections. I ordered some great spirits, including Malibu Rum, Perrier Jouet Grand Brut Champagne, and Lillet Servir Tres Frais Blanc wine.
Within an hour of placing my order, I received a text message alerting me that the delivery driver was on his way to meet me. When he arrived, he verified my age and ID, and had me sign the receipt, and then he went on his merry way. In less than an hour, I received my order, without having to leave the comfort of my location. Simple. Quick. Easy. And stress-free! These words summarize my experience with Drizly.
I also love that they have a ton of holiday drink ideas on the site, so depending on which cocktails you want to craft for you and your friends, you can find the recipe and order the ingredients right there! Or you can do like I did, and improvise based on what you buy. Also, beneath each item there is a description of the liquor, plus suggestions for pairings. I tried the Lillet Servir Tres Frais Blanc wine chilled with some fresh fruit garnish, as pictured. But for holiday parties, I wanted make a fun, sparkling, holiday rum punch, using the recipe below.
Sparkling Holiday Rum Punch recipe:
1.5 parts Malibu Rum
0.5 parts Orange juice
0.5 parts Lemon juice
0.5 parts Maple syrup
1.5 parts Perrier Jouet Grand Brut Champagne
Garnish with orange slices, lemon slices, cranberries, and star anise
