Cheers to another fantastic holiday season! I hope your celebrations were filled with family, friends and fun — and that your glass stayed filled to the top, too. As you get ready for the new year, be it by celebrating with a big night out on the town or a cozy night in, make sure to bust out the nice stemware and mix yourself a tasty drink. I like the bright, cheerful colors of classic bloody marys, rosé mimosas and lime margaritas; plus, those reds, greens and golden orange hues are festive and fun. Just be sure to keep some carpet cleaner handy in case you spill
Try this recipe for the perfect bloody mary, courtesy Food Network. I’ve never tried a bloody mary with red wine in it, but it could be an interesting mix!
Want a more vividly colored mimosa? Besides using rosé sparkling wine or rosé champagne, try adding a splash of blood orange juice instead of plain old OJ. Follow this simple recipe for blood orange mimosas courtesy Food Network.

What’s going to be your first cocktail of the new year?
