Mexican Hot Chocolate
From the kitchen of Georgia Johnson, Austin, Texas, thecomfortofcooking.com
"Simmered with a cinnamon stick, vanilla extract, and a touch of chili powder, this hot chocolate is amazingly fragrant and delicious with a dollop of whipped cream."
From the kitchen of Shawnda Horn, Houston, Texas, jasonandshawnda.com
"We love cranberry margaritas because they're beautiful and festive, and are a reminder that margaritas aren't just for summer."
Holiday Milk Punch
From the kitchen of Natalie Broulette, New York, New York, thesoho.blogspot.com
"It's unusual to find a cold drink that gives you that sense of holiday coziness, but this one does. Grate the nutmeg fresh. It makes a difference."
From the kitchen of Amy Mikkelsen, Atlanta, Georgia www.yoursouthernpeach.com
"This cocktail was inspired by the Southern side dish that's popular during the holidays. Add some marshmallows and cherries for a festive garnish."
