Tis the season to rejoice and be merry—and nothing helps kick the celebration off better than indulging in a nice adult beverage.

So, now that we've already helped you pick the perfect gifts, decorate your desserts and make sure you don't destroy your diet, we thought it was only fair that we reward you with some celebratory cocktails!

The first holiday cocktail, the Kiss-Me-Santa LeSUTRA Mimosa, is an easy-to-make holiday treat that is sure to perk up any holiday party.

Not only would LeSUTRA's founder Timbaland probably love sipping on this sparkly seasonal treat, but other LeSUTRA celeb fans like Nas, Missy Elliot and Flo Rida would probably be big fans of this beverage as well!

Here's how to make it:

Kiss-Me-Santa LeSUTRA Mimosa

3 oz. Strawberry LeSUTRA

Splash of Ultra Premium Vodka

Top with Champagne

Dip rim of glass in crushed candy cane, served chilled in a champagne flute and use a candy cane stick to garnish.

Two other amazing holiday recipes came to us courtesy of Bacardi's own MARTINI®—the brand loved by celebs like Kim Kardashian, George Clooney, Kate Hudson and Kristen Chenoweth.

We recommend the first if you're feeling a little more ambitious about your MARTINI® mixing skills and the second if you're just jonesin' to get your holiday drink on!
