In honour of the most wonderful time of year, we’ve combined two of our favourite things—fashion and drinking—to create some inventive takes on classic cocktail recipes. Complete with the most gorgeous vintage glassware from the folks over at BYOB Cocktail Emporium, these nine designer-inspired cocktail recipes that are sure to rock the socks off your most stylish friends.

With a little help from Margherita Missoni herself, who revealed her own spin on the wintertime classic Hot Toddy, these inspired cocktail recipes run the gamut from the Thai chili-garnished Proenza Paloma to the frothy Alexander McQueen-inspired Pink Lady.

Call it the Mad Men effect, but cocktails are truly having a moment and as their popularity grows, getting creative with ingredients and inspiration is more common—not unlike our own variety. Our cocktail recipes can carry you through festive parties to Christmas dinner, all the way to New Years Eve and straight into 2013. If you’re gifted a bottle of alcohol and have absolutely no idea what to mix with it, our holiday cocktail recipes offer up a taste of a variety of speeds. Pick your poison—vodka, gin, Moët Chandon, or even whiskey—and we’ve mixed a cocktail with it that’s ready to be sipped and enjoyed with the best of friends and family. Best part of it all? They are all quite simple to make and none require over 4 ingredients. Who says fashion can’t be tasty?
