Aiming to avoid the typical boozy holiday bombs, this cocktail is a riff on the classic Corpse Reviver No. 2 cocktail. (That's also the reason for the creepy name!) It's lower-alcohol, refreshing and light. Citrus, vanilla and spice are the main notes and the chocolate mist at the end (if you use it) lends a celebratory toasty nose.

A splash of cranberry juice in sparkling wine and a garnish of cranberries and rosemary sprigs makes an exceptionally festive party-ready cocktail that's easy to make, too.
A madras is a cocktail mix of vodka and fruit juice. This version blends three different fruit juices with peach vodka, and is served over homemade ice cubes, filled with finely chopped fresh mango. When buying mangos, give them a light squeeze. Look for fruits that give a little without being too squishy!
This refreshing cocktail is made with pomegranate vodka and citrus juices. It's delightfully fruity and fizzy and has under 15 grams of carbohydrates per serving.
A Bellini cocktail is a mixture of sparkling wine and peach nectar. Give this version a try--the coconut and grape flavor is enhanced by toasted coconut on the rim of each glass!
