5 New Year’s Cocktail Recipes Worth Staying Up For

Mistletoe Mule Recipe

Raise your glass! The countdown is on to the New Year, and I, like many of you, am ready for a clean slate. Unfortunately, 2020 and 2021 have not been so kind to many of us, and I feel like we are waiting with bated breath to enter 2022.

Whether you are having a low-key evening at home or are celebrating with friends and family, having a festive cocktail in your hand is one surefire way to ring in the New Year.

There are quite a few New Year’s traditions around the world, but one I have become quite fond of is making Hoppin’ John. Black-eyed peas are said to bring good fortune to those who eat them on New Year’s Day. I already have all the ingredients on hand because 2022 is going to be MY year.
