I was testing out Christmas cocktails, and knew that whichever one I posted would be called the drunk uncle. Inspired by Drunk Uncle from SNL because that’s exactly who I felt like when the recipe development was all said and done! This Christmas bevvy is delicious, but please consume safely so you don’t embarrass yourself or harm others.
I’ve also crafted some more delicious holiday drinks! If you want something boozy, try making my vegan nog or vegan irish cream. If you have a few too many or want to skip alcohol altogether, my hazelnut hot chocolate is totally alcohol-free and equally as tasty. Let’s keep it a safe and happy holiday season!

The drunk uncle cocktail is the perfect way to toast to the holidays... or forget that they're happening all together!
