It’s almost 2021. Send off 2020 with a festive, stiff cocktail! And we all know that without a beer in your hand, you can’t countdown to New Year’s. We’ve got a cocktail for you if you’re a lover of champagne, tequila, whisky, bourbon, or wine.

Although we might not be able to have the sort of giant, indoor meetings that we had in the past (and will probably have in the future), that doesn’t mean we can’t have any tasty drinks in the new year. That being said, drinks on New Year’s Eve can make you want to move, not sleep. Dancing and conversation and journeys back to the punch bowl or the pub or the fridge should be motivated. We like citrus and bubbles. We want zippy flavors and colors that are bold. And that’s what you’re doing, the drink should sound celebratory. It’s not the time for an ordinary beer.

So we have put together this list of New Year’s festive, mostly bubbly cocktails to help welcome you to 2021. As we share our favorite New Year’s Eve drinks, follow along.
