The holidays are here, and that means it’s holiday party time!

Of course, no holiday party is complete without the perfect fun, festive cocktail.

Mixologist Darryl Robinson stopped by Access Hollywood Live to show Billy Bush and Kit Hoover some of his favorite fun, festive drink recipes…

GRAPE CRUSADER:

4oz Yellow Tail Moscato

1oz Luksusowa Vodka

1/2 oz Lemon Juice

1/4 oz Grenadine

4 red grapes

Muddle ingredients except wine in the martini shaker. Add ice and shake lightly for 6 seconds. Strain into a wine glass and top with YellowTail Moscato- Garnish with a spring of mint.

*****

MILKY MINT:

1oz Adult Chocolate Milk

1/4 oz Clear Creme de Menthe

3/4 Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka

Chocolate Syrup

Squeeze Chocolate Syrup onto sides of the chilled martini glass. Mix remaining ingredients in a shaker over ice. Shake and pour into martini glass. Top with whipped cream if desired.

*****

PICCADILLY PUNCH:

1oz BullDog Gin

2oz Pineapple Juice

2oz Cranberry Juice

Splash Grenadine

Combine all ingredients over ice, add splash of grenadine.

*****

If all else fails, Darryl suggests an easy drinking wine, like Clos Du Bois red blend — it offers a mouthful of sweet fruit and full-bodied lushness follows, with the blackberry fruit accented by notes of toasty oak.
