Much like our homes, sometimes we get in a rut with designing our beverages. If you’re looking for something new and exciting, I’ve found some fun drink ideas that you can create right at home!

Pomegranate Martini

Take a classic such as a martini, and give it some pizazz with pomegranate flavor. Pomegranate is becoming a wildly popular favorite for many specialty drinks, and the martini is no exception. The hint of fruity flavor will be a welcome change. The best part? This is also a low-calorie drink! That’s right, no guilt here. Who could ask for more?

Gingerbread Latte

The cooler air is upon us and with the cold winter months approaching, what better way to get cozy than to partake in a delicious coffee or espresso-based beverage? The Gingerbread Latte pictured above is perfection in a cup. The bold flavor of espresso blended with a fabulous hint of gingerbread flavoring is sure to get you into the holiday spirit!

Egg Nog

Nothing says holiday cheer better than Egg Nog. This recipe changes things up a bit by using rum instead of brandy and with a hint of nutmeg, who could say no to this designer drink? Drinks are very similar to interior design in that you can change individual elements to create a whole new feel. This recipe exemplifies that theory to a “T”!

Non-alcoholic Spiced Punch

There are a number of non-alcoholic holiday drink ideas that are easy and quick to make as well. The holiday season has us immensely busy as it is, so sometimes quick is key. The non-alcoholic Spiced Punch featured above requires only four simple ingredients: cranberry juice, honey, nutmeg, and cinnamon sticks. Piece of cake!
