Show us your best holiday cocktails


This week’s Southern Kitchen recipe contest: Share your very best holiday drinks

Our long holiday season of entertaining is about to be upon us, and with it will come tips on tips around how to best manage the chaos (guilty). The ultimate trick? Keep your cocktail arsenal at the ready.

We’re always looking for new and interesting new cocktails to try, and that’s where you come in. Do you have a mulled wine recipe that is the secret to all of your best holiday parties? Or have you concocted the absolute best twist on an Old Fashioned? Share us your very best in holiday drinks for a chance to win some very snazzy rocks glasses from our friends at Crafthouse by Fortessa, a spot on our exclusive Thanksgiving menu, and, of course, plenty of fame and praise on Southern Kitchen.

You have until November 3, so get your cocktail shakers and your muddlers ready. (And yes, virgin cocktails count.)

Submit your recipes here or via email to editor@southernkitchen.com. (Don’t worry — we’ll remind you before the deadline.) Feel free to submit as many recipes as you’d like, but make them count! Read all of the rules here.

Don't forget: If you take a picture, make sure you share your recipe on Instagram with the hashtag #southernkitchencontest. We'll repost our favorites.

We’ll pick at least three drinks to cook up in the Southern Kitchen test kitchen. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page to find out the winner and runners-up.
