When it comes to the holidays, there are always mixed feelings about heading back home, and truthfully: I understand more than anyone. For me, I'm the only one of my two siblings who live out-of-state, and both of my brothers are married and living a much more "adult life" than compared to my city life. 

To say I can feel uncomfortable at times is the understatement of the century, and ironically, many of you can relate. 

As a result, you also know there is only one foolproof way to cope with these awkward social settings, and that is? Making sure your cocktail is always fresh. 

Nevertheless, if you've also ever been in a similar situation? You know that the last thing mom, dad, grandma, or grandpa want to see is you with yet another beer bottle or wine glass in hand (it's a bad look, and we agree) –which is why we've conjured up another suitable solution. 

Enter: holiday-inspired cocktails. 

Whether you're looking to take the edge off of a family gathering or hoping to get into the holiday spirit, a holiday-inspired cocktail is not only the responsible way to approach the season, but the festive way to take part in it too. And fortunately for you all, you're in luck. 

Admit yet another late-night binge on TikTok (my newest obsession); I stumbled upon @DollFaced's page, where I not only found this Grinch-inspired cocktail but also so many other festive finds too. So, for anyone who's looking to make this season as jolly as ever? 

Fear not: we're here to help. 

We rounded up five holiday-inspired cocktails that are seriously so good you'll want to substitute Santa's milk and cookies with them.

Any Malibu lovers out there? This one is for you — and is the tropical treat you need. This blue-shaded cocktail is on the sweeter side, and uses Malibu rum, and is rounded-off with shredded coconut. My opinion? This drink is the vacation-in-a-cup we all don't just want but need. Cheers!
