New Year's Eve is practically synonymous with champagne. All season long, you see images of people popping bottles, clinking glasses, and making toasts. But just because the sparkling stuff is the star of the show on December 31 doesn't mean you can't enjoy other types of drinks on the holiday. In fact, we whole-heartedly recommend it. In addition to allowing you to test your bartending skills, serving a creative New Year's Eve drink menu of cocktails and mocktails will also wow everyone you watch the ball drop with. Not to mention, you just might find a new favorite winter drink you'll want to mix all season long.
