Sipping with Liz: fall and holiday drink recipes

The Halloween decorations are put away, the last few pieces of candy are slowly disappearing (read: the Whoppers and Smartees) and we're officially entering into the Holiday season! That sounds like a reason to raise our glasses and rejoice! And having a few holiday drink recipes on hand during the season of entertaining is just the trick. Enjoy these fall and holiday drink recipes and feel free to add your own in the comments! Lime Sorbet Margaritas: These have to be the easiest margaritas to make, and very tasty, too! Just serve lime sorbet in a sugar-rimmed glass and pour tequila over the top and enjoy!

Nothing says fall like a good apple cider. Here's a twist - cook it in your slow cooker! Add some rum if you like a kick, and cheers to fall!

Egg nog is another classic, but instead of buying it pre-made from the grocery store, why not make at home and perfect it yourself? Ingredients include eggs, sugar, salt, whole milk, vanilla extract, nutmeg and heavy cream and it only takes 5 minutes to prepare. Take a look and make some with the kids this season!

And if you don't like the idea of real eggs (and maybe want a little kick, too), check out this Holiday Milk Punch.

To try something really different, why not whip up a tray of martinis during a girls' night? Two sweet treats sure to please are the Gingerbread Martini and Peppermintini.

Garnishes are important for holiday drinks - an easy way to make your favorite cocktail more festive is to add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg or uncommon fruit garnishes, like cranberries, pomegranate or raspberries. Peppermint sticks (candy canes!) can be great seasonal stirrers, too!

These are just a few recipes that are perfect for this time of year. Also be sure to check out Brian's post with warm beverage recipes.
