I have found a special cocktail called "White Russian Christmas" which could be perfect for a Christmas party. This cocktail has a rating of 4.15/5, making it a great choice for the occasion. It's a cold, alcoholic drink that is shaken, not stirred, and contains flavors such as gingerbread syrup and mincemeat, giving it a festive twist.
