Winter Open House Drinks: Peppermint Flavored + Non-alcoholic

As the holiday season extends into the New Year, hold on to this special time with at-home entertaining with family and friends. And one definitely fun way to keep the festive spirit going is with a wintertime open house! No fancy dishes to prepare. No elaborate decorating. Just a warm, welcoming “drop in any time” invitation to catch up, share some snacks, and exchange tight hugs after so long.

But even a simple get-together can be made extra-special by serving holiday inspired drinks, featuring peppermint! And these ones we’ve chosen are family friendly for grownups to kids, as they contain no alcohol. Just well-loved flavors perked up with that candy cane coolness and crunch. Ho-ho-ho!
