There's a few weeks until Christmas, which means it's likely that your social calendar is fairly full of holiday parties. For the next little while every time you turn around you'll be mingling, dancing, and wishing everyone well. It's a lovely time, but it can get exhausting - especially when you have to come up with an assortment of hostess gifts, or if you're trying to organize your owns seasonal soiree amid the chaos. Lucky for you we've got what you need for either situation: a fun list of festive beverages you can serve or bring. These creative cocktails are just the thing to wow an entire party. From thrower to goer, you'll be the bringer of holiday cheers.

5. Mulled Wine - For your Dickensian Christmases. There's nothing quite as traditional as mulled wine, goose, and ghosts.

6. Kahlua Hot Chocolate - Nothing warms you up quite like a hot chocolate. Make it a little boozy and we're sure you'll be feeling pretty cozy.

7. Two Turtle Doves - Grated white chocolate and coconut cream, this decadent cocktail isn't one to be overlooked.

8. Peppermint Mocha-Tini - Since it's peppermint and chocolate (a winning combination) this beverage is perfect before or after dinner!
