Christmas is right around the corner which means lots of food, fun, and drinks! I have loved Dr. Suess’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas since I was young so this year we decided to create our very own boozy grinchmas cocktails! Now, we don’t drink much but these were just too fun not to try. We definitely added a bit more soda than expected to make them smoother since well, we don’t drink much! You can adjust according to your preference. This recipe turned out so well and it really is such a fun, boozy holiday drink. Although this year is a bit different with the pandemic and many people staying home, this would be perfect for holiday parties and Christmas dinner. You can hold off the vodka to also make it a kid friendly grinchmas punch! No matter if you are at home or visiting family, this is the perfect boozy drink to bring some cheer this holiday season.
