The Best Blended Holiday Cocktails

This holiday season, don't settle for boring, plain cocktails. Instead, try something bold and seasonal whether you're entertaining for a holiday party or just trying to get into the spirit. Here are a few drink recipes that you can try in your Oster® Fresh+Blend'N Go™ Mason Jar Blender.

Blended Eggnog 
Eggnog only comes but once a year, so make sure you enjoy this creamy treat as a cocktail with friends or family. To make a truly frothy cocktail, all you need to do is combine four parts eggnog with one part brandy, a bit of sugar, a splash of cognac and a pinch of nutmeg in your mason jar blender jar. Then screw the cap on and BLEND on low for about 30 seconds. You'll be left with a tasty and creamy cocktail that you can drink directly from the mason jar or share with friends. 

If you want to really impress your friends and family, whip up the entire drink from scratch. Use your blender to make homemade eggnog with heavy cream and eggs.
