Gather around the table for food and drinks at the Fairmont.

The holiday season means it’s time to plan parties and entertain friends and family at gatherings around the yule log.

Here are a few recipes the folks at the American spirits manufacturer Brown-Forman emailed that we thought we’d share:

Sparkling Holiday Punch — A bubbly and festive addition to all holiday festivities.

8 oz. Chambord Liqueur

8 oz. Cranberry Juice

2 chilled bottles Korbel Brut


Pour ingredients into a large punch bowl or pitcher and stir. Top with raspberries or cranberries.

Herbarium Holiday Pitcher – A refreshing and light break from heavy holiday indulgences.

4 oz. Finlandia Vodka

4 oz Lime Juice

2 oz. Simple Syrup

12 oz. Soda

1 Pinch Salt

Fresh Herbs (coriander, mint, basil, sage, rosemary)

Cranberry Cheer — A festive single-serve option for any occasion this holiday.

1 oz. Finlandia Classic Vodka

2 oz. Cranberry Juice

3 oz. Korbel Brut


Shake vodka and cranberry juice in a shaker with ice. Strain into a chilled champagne flute and top with Korbel. Garnish with cranberries.

Festive Peppermint Fizz — A drink as Instagramable as it is tasty.

1 oz. White Crème de Cacao

4 oz. Korbel California Brut

White Chocolate, melted

If you have any other recipes or favorite holiday drinks to share, email them to and we’ll share them with our readers. Remember to enjoy these recipes in moderation and refrain from drinking and driving. When you go to sleep tonight, remember there are only 19 sleeps until Christmas.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
