10 Easy 2-Ingredient Christmas Cocktails

These 10 easy and festive Christmas cocktails only require 2 ingredients (aside from optional garnishes) and will add extra cheer to your season without adding any extra holiday stress to your plate!

Two martinis sit in front of a Christmas tree with red ornaments.

Everyone loves a simple cocktail recipe, and at least for me, the simpler the better! This is especially true during the holidays when we’re already being torn in a million different directions. The one thing I certainly don’t want to stress over is the drink in my hand!

These easy recipes are perfect for holiday parties, pregaming Christmas dinner, or for whenever you want to enjoy a festive, non-fussy cocktail!

Even with only two ingredients, these cocktails are super creative and oh-so Christmasy. It’s likely you already have a lot of the ingredients on hand if you have a home bar, so they’ll also be cost effective for most people!

When looking for Christmas cocktail recipes for this roundup, they just had to check off two boxes:

  1. Be easy to make and require only 2 ingredients (not including garnishes)
  2. Be very obviously holiday or Christmas-themed

There were quite a few to choose from, so I got to be pretty picky and only chose the ones I would make myself. I also looked for a wide range of liqueurs, spirits, and mixers to make sure there’s something for everyone on this roundup!

Now with all of that said, let’s get right into these very merry cocktail recipes!

Wishing you all a very merry and stress-free holiday season!
