As 2023 comes to a close, it’s only right to send it off in style. This year, let’s leave the bubbly behind and get a tad more creative when it comes to our NYE toast.

Whether you need an Espresso Martini to stay awake past midnight or crave a Cosmopolitan to really get the party started, we’ve got you covered with a line-up of beloved classic cocktails.

Pick one to be the signature drink of the night, or play at-home bartender as you shake, stir, and serve up different orders to your guests. Either way, it’s sure to be a proper celebration with these glasses in hand!

Patrón Ranch Water

Patrón Tequila

Light, tangy, and oh-so-easy to make, the Ranch Water is about as close to the perfect NYE cocktail as you can get. It requires just three simple ingredients–tequila, lime juice, and sparkling mineral water–and comes together with a gentle stir, providing the perfect complement to heavy holiday dinners and platters of finger food.

Just how refreshing is this drink? Well, the Ranch Water originated amidst the sprawling farms and scorching heat of West Texas. If it can satisfy a thirsty cowboy, it’s surely the ultimate go-to for the biggest night of the year.

EASYLOW-FAT

Paloma

Patrón Tequila

Pucker up! Some call it a cousin of the margarita, but this sweet-and-sour cocktail is plenty fabulous in its own right. The Paloma, which means “dove” in Spanish, is said to be named after a popular 1860s Mexican folk song, although its true origin story is unclear.

If you’re seeking to bring people together this holiday season, partygoers with Palomas in hand are sure to keep the peace. Bright, citrusy pops of grapefruit soda and lime keep things festive, while PATRÓN Silver Tequila provides the kick. This is a drink you can sip on all night long!

EASYLOW-FAT

Patrón Perfect Margarita

Patrón Tequila

This legendary drink is often associated with summer days, but its beachy flavors can really spice up a winter event. When the Margaritas start flowing, you know you’re in for a good time!

Since the Margarita’s invention in the 1930s-40s, it has taken on a whole myriad of flavors, frozen varieties, and other fun twists. However, we’re keeping things traditional in this “perfect” iteration, which comes together with the help of tequila, orange liqueur, lime, and simple syrup (plus a salted rim, of course).

Bloody Mary

GREY GOOSE

While it may seem like an unconventional option, there are plenty of pros to serving up the Bloody Mary as your NYE drink of choice. If you’re serious about those New Year’s resolutions, this saucy cocktail is there to give you a head start (without skimping on the good times).

The tomato juice base is full of antioxidants, electrolytes, and other nutrients, and we won’t judge you if you nibble on the celery stick stirrer, too. Meanwhile, Worcestershire sauce packs a punch and Grey Goose vodka completes this spicy, salty, all-around powerhouse of a drink. So think beyond brunch, and raise a Bloody Mary to 2024!

EASYLOW-FAT

Le Grand Fizz

GREY GOOSE

Spritzes are the perfect celebratory drink, and this cocktail takes things to the next level–All you need are 5 ingredients and 5 minutes. Grey Goose Vodka pairs perfectly with the florals of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, while lime juice and chilled soda water make each sip more refreshing than the last.

Although it’s known as a mainstay at brunches and warm-weather events, Le Grand Fizz is just as suited to the holidays. The bubbly, bright burst of flavor is like NYE fireworks on the palate!

LOW-FATPEANUT-FREE

French Martini Cocktail

GREY GOOSE

Elegant, fun, and flirty, the French Martini will have you and your NYE guests feeling like European royalty. After all, what could be better than the blend of smooth Grey Goose vodka, velvety black raspberry Chambord Liqueur, and fresh pineapple juice?

From the luscious foam that tops the glass to the dainty raspberry garnish, every sip of this cocktail is total indulgence. It gives your get-together an upscale feel, and you’ll hardly be able to stop toasting because it’s so fabulously sippable!

EASYLOW-FAT

GREY GOOSE® Espresso Martini Cocktail

GREY GOOSE

Need help staying up until the ball drop? The Espresso Martini is here to help, treating sippers to a double whammy of alcohol and caffeine.

Silky vodka comes together with a rich espresso shot and premium coffee liqueur, while a pinch of salt rounds out the flavor. With a gorgeous garnish of whole coffee beans, this cocktail is as picturesque as everyone in their NYE finest.

EASYLOW-FAT

Cosmopolitan

GREY GOOSE

Ring in the New Year like Carrie Bradshaw with this drink in hand. Although its backstory is hazy, the Cosmopolitan rocketed to popularity thanks to its frequent appearances on the 1990s series, “Sex and the City.”

The iconic Cosmo is a good time in a glass, bringing together vodka, Triple Sec, cranberry juice, and lime to create the ultimate tart, fruity sweet treat. Garnish the glass with an orange peel twist and you’ll have a cocktail that’s almost too pretty to drink!
