Come Party With Me: Ugly Sweater — Drinks

It's safe to say that a lot of alcohol will be consumed at your Ugly Sweater party. It's a shindig that starts later in the night, so guests will be excited and in the mood. When they arrive, offer them a cheesy cocktail or a scrumptious shot. Sandra Lee's Glacer-tini is bright green and sophisticatedly trashy, while a Slippery Santa shot is deliciously dark and potent.

Have plenty of beer and wine on hand. Expecting a large crowd? Splurge on a keg. Champagne and sparkling apple cider are festive crowd pleasers, so stock up on a few bottles. Sparkling and still water are a must.

For the holiday-themed cocktail recipes,

Both these drinks sound good. I think I'll opt for Slippery Santa. I've tried HypnoTiq before and couldn't swallow it. Ick!
Oops, HypnoTiq
I thought that drink look like it contained Hypnoiq.

I've seen black vodka but never tried it ... it's supposed to be nice though. I cannot believe a recipe from Sandra Lee made it on here. That woman freaks me out.
