Getting into the holiday spirit — for some that means throwing on an ugly sweater, decorating the tree, and dangling lights from the rooftop; for others, the word “spirit” is taken a bit more literally. Whether you’re drinking to add some rum to your “pa rum pa pum pum” or some buzz to your bah-humbug, we’ve got you covered with recipes that’ll make your taste buds twinkle like The Star of Bethlehem.

We collected holiday recipes from a variety of our hosts, and SiriusXM FLY’s very own Heather B., a licensed mixologist, recreated them with the help of taste tester Taylor Steckler from SiriusXM Stars’ Wake Up With Taylor.

Check out the recipes below, and watch our step-by-step instructional video to make them for yourself. Let’s get Blitzen-d! Must be at least 21 to cook ‘em. Plus please drink responsibly!
