The holidays are fast approaching, which means ’tis the season of parties and festive gatherings. This year, step up your mixology game by bringing a pitcher of a delicious new drink to your next holiday fete or offering fabulous cocktails when you host friends and family for dinner.

Tropicana Premium Drinks  are the perfect addition to any mixology recipe and accompaniment to social gatherings. With their Tangerine Lemonade or Watermelon premium juice drinks, you have a wealth of options at your fingertips. But don’t take our word for it. Some of our Social Moms have put together amazing recipes for you to try. Taste one—or all six!

Stephanie with Hello Glo created a yummy Tropicana Lemonade Punch recipe:

It’s never too early to start dreaming about the cold-weather cocktails you plan to whip up this holiday season. Whether you’re sipping a celebratory spiced apple cider at Thanksgiving, or enjoying a warm hot toddy after a long day at work, one thing’s for sure: a boozy cocktail is a great way to finish a long day. I have always loved the flavor-packed punch of fragrant herbs and warm bourbon in my fall cocktails, but this year I’m leaning towards something lighter and more refreshing (and not to mention fun). This festive lemonade punch mixes the decidedly fall-like flavor of pomegranate with the lighter notes of lemon and orange. And it’s topped with a generous pour of champagne, because it wouldn’t be the holidays without a little bit of bubbly.

Jaimie at Pretty Prudent came up with this delicious Spicy Watermelon Mezcal Holiday Cocktail recipe:

It doesn’t really seem like the season for watermelon right now, does it? Watermelon screams summer and sunlight and lazy days by the pool, but watermelon actually has its place at a Los Angeles Christmas cocktail party.

Here in Southern California, and I’m sure in many other places (like, say, Mexico), we have a tradition of eating tamales on Christmas. And what would go better with a tamale at a holiday party than a sweet, smoky, spicy cocktail of watermelon juice and mezcal?

Jaleesa with Jaleesa Charisse mixed together a Tropicana Tangerine Lemonade + Cointreau recipe:

Inspired by festive fall holiday parties, my goal was to deliver a herbal and spiced twist that can be sipped at any time of year, whether you’re at Thanksgiving dinner or at home for a relaxing Girls’ Night or spa day. The Cointreau brings out the citrus of the Tropicana Tangerine Lemonade. I added grenadine syrup for an additional pomegranate flavor and aromatic bitters for a botanical blend.

Krystin at Girl In Betsey shares a Christmas Gin cocktail:

With the holidays coming up there is so much to think about: décor, food, drink, and entertainment along with everything else. I wanted to showcase a delicious cocktail (and mocktail) that you can make in only a few minutes that actually tastes good.

I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone this holiday season with a new recipe I can actually enjoy. To create this Christmas Gin, only a few ingredients were needed to put this concoction together.

Tori with Thoughtfully Simple came up with a delicious Thanksgiving Tangerine + Thyme Mimosa recipe:

I love to serve mimosas when entertaining—they are simple to make and always a crowd pleasure. But the same old recipe can get a little boring, so I decided to mix things up and create a flavorful fall mimosa using a unique combo: tangerine and thyme. I live to try out new flavors when creating cocktails to serve guests; it’s always fun to share new flavors with others.

When you think “mimosa,” you typically think of orange juice, not tangerine lemonade! I’m thinking this is going to be my new go-to ingredient for my at home cocktail recipes this fall. It’s so delicious!

Dawn with Revel and Glitter shares a Ginger Tangerine Lemonade cocktail:

To help toast the perfect Thanksgiving meal in style, I added Tropicana Premium Tangerine Lemonade to my shopping list … to make a Ginger Tangerine Lemonade cocktail! I know what you’re thinking, but lemonade isn’t just for the summer; mixed with ginger beer, this drink is perfect for fall entertaining!
