No chestnuts roasting on an open fire? No Jack Frost nipping at your nose? No worries. Just mix up a pitcher (or two) of one of these Yuletide-evoking drinks and you and your guests will be in the holiday spirit in no time.

Mary Rockett's Milk Punch [JBF]

Apparently folks in the eighteenth-century also needed a little tipple to get through the holidays. This traditional recipe, adapted by cocktail expert David Wondrich, dates back to 1711.

Champagne Mojitos [F&W]

Mojitos get fancy in this Champagne-splashed cocktail from JBF Award winner John Besh.

Pumpkin Mulled Wine [Saveur]

This spicy, pumpkin-infused drink was inspired by a meal at the Beard House.

Pear-Rosemary Cocktails [Martha Stewart]

A simple but showstopping cocktail made with Seckel pear-infused vodka, rosemary-scented simple syrup, and a splash of pear nectar.

Hot Peppermint Patty [BA]

There's nothing like a spiked mug of hot cocoa to make you feel like a kid again.
