WATCH: Martina McBride Mixes Holiday Cocktails


It's officially the holiday season, and it's time to celebrate!

One of the best ways to do that is to kick back with a delicious cocktail and put on some Christmas music – like Martina McBride's new album, It's The Holiday Season.

The collection features nine holiday songs, including classics like "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town," "Winter Wonderland," "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas," "Most Wonderful Time of the Year," and "Frosty The Snowman.”

In honour of her new holiday album, the country star is sharing some holiday-inspired cocktail recipes. Find out how to make them below.

McBride says of the classic negroni: “I first had this drink in Italy, which is where it originated. This is a great cocktail for winter. And I like to have this in the evening before dinner as an aperitif.”
