Reality Television Inspires Drinks For The Holidays


/ December 24, 2013

Whether you celebrate Hanukkah or Christmas, we all can use a pick-me-up during the holiday season. VIBE found the Top 5 Holiday Drinks that were named specifically for reality shows.

Peppermint is always the go-to candy of choice for the holidays, so why not have a peppermint-inspired martini? The “Kandi Kane” named after Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burress, is guaranteed to put you in a minty holiday spirit. If you love fresh fruit in your drinks with a mix of vodka then the “Mr. Jones” will be perfect for you. It’s inspired by the Dipset rapper Jim Jones, who snagged his own show Chrissy and Mr. Jones. For a drink with a little bit more kick behind it, Love and Hip-Hop: Atlanta rapper Lil Scrappy has the perfect pick-me-up holiday drink called “The Scrappy.” If you like to keep it simple and traditional, then “The Ev Nogg” is just what you need. Named after Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, this homemade rum-infused egg nog will have you singing Christmas carols like Beyonce.

Just in case the holiday drinks aren’t enough for you, then Love and Hip-Hop star K. Michelle’s “The K. Merry Christmas Punch” is sure to give you the fix you need. With a dark rum and red wine combination, this punch will be the talk of the holidays.

Enjoy and happy holidays from VIBE!
