20 Light & Lovely Holiday Cocktail Recipes

Sharon Palmer

Are you looking for a special alcoholic beverage for your holiday, that’s packed with flavor and intrigue, yet a bit lighter in sugar, alcohol and fat? We’ve got you covered here with a collection of 20 Light & Lovely Holiday Cocktail Recipes, which are 100% plant-based and 100% delicious. I know that I’m not a big fan of heavy cocktails, loaded down with added sugars, sweet ingredients, calories, and too much booze. I favor those alcoholic drinks with a healthier feel, including ingredients like herbs, fruits, citrus, vegetables, and sparkling waters to give them a light as a feather touch. These holiday cocktail drinks certainly won’t weigh you down! Some of my favorite bloggers contributed to this collection of recipes, and my favorite recipes are included here too. There are cocktail recipes for all holiday occasions, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s gatherings, whether it’s for brunch, parties, Zoom toasts, or dinners.

Cheers!

Sharon
