Slow-cooker cocktails? Yup, they’re a thing, and you should be making them this holiday season. Break out your slow cooker for more than just chili this winter. Slow cooker cocktails are easy, festive and best of all, you can make them ahead of time so you have a delicious warm cocktail waiting for you at the end of the day. Just dump all your drink ingredients in the slow cooker and turn it on low, and soon enough you’ll have a warm, boozy beverage to indulge in.
These cocktails would be a great start to any holiday celebration or served as a digestif after dinner — spiked peppermint hot cocoa anyone? Our holiday celebrations look a lot different this year but that doesn’t mean we can’t get festive with some easy, holiday cocktails and make the best out of this, uh, wild year.
