This cocktail drink is iconic for a good reason. It’s citrus taste and bright orange-red colors showcase its greatness. The sweetness of the grenadine mixed with the tang of orange juice and bold flavors of tequila make a cocktail that’s fresh and fruity.
To create this drink all you’ll need is a well-balanced tequila like the Jose Cuervo Especial Reposado (Gold), grenadine, orange juice, some cherries for garnishing, and ice. Combine them all together, and you’ve got yourself a refreshing beverage that will surely make welcoming the New Year a pleasure.
Pomegranate Champagne Punch
Pomegranate Champagne Punch is an elegant drink wherein a bottle of champagne, pear nectar, and orange-flavored liqueur come together. Champagne is an alcohol that is commonly used for festive celebrations like New Year’s. Grab the Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut! It’s the best choice for this cocktail because its assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grape varieties (Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay).
In a pitcher, pour pomegranate juice, pear nectar, and orange-flavored liqueur. Slowly add your bottle of champagne. Enjoy it to the fullest with ice!
Wine is one of the most common alcoholic beverages and it is a major ingredient in a plethora of cocktails. Sangria is a classic cocktail with its roots in Spain and Portugal. It delivers on some serious festive flavors and its ingredients are red wine, soda, slices of orange or lemon, and other fruits such as apples, pears, or peaches.
Mixing sangria is easy as well. First, wash the fruits you have selected and chop them. Then, pour them into a pitcher along with the red wine. You may also add syrup such as the Monin Strawberry if you want to lean on the sweeter side for the biggest celebration of the year.
Another well-loved cocktail drink that is often present in celebrations is the Margarita. It is iconic for its sour citrus taste during the initial sip, before the lasting feeling of the burning tequila. If you want a great night with your friends and family, then this beverage is definitely for you. All you’ll need is signature tequila, lime juice, salt, ice, and triple sec.
Mix the triple sec, tequila, ice, and lime juice in a blender. Afterward, serve it in a glass with the rim dipped in salt. Cheers!

Simply grab the ingredients: sugar, mint leaves, lime, white rum, and beer. In a tall glass, combine the sugar, mint leaves, and lime. Then, add the rum, beer, and stir.
There’s a reason why people drink champagne for celebrations. It has a lavish history that traces back to the 1800s. Today, its fizz is still sought out for perceived class and elegance.
Since you are celebrating New Years’, this calls for a liquor concoction that is suitable for festivities. Bring out the champagne, gin, lemon juice, and syrup. Pour all these ingredients into a shaker and a fancy glass. Stir gently, and enjoy.
If you want a cocktail drink that is incredibly simple to make but doesn’t fall short on taste — Mango Mimosa is your go-to. Recreate this recipe with the two ingredients: mangoes and champagne.
