During the holiday season, the fireplace is a traditional gathering spot for many families. While sitting around a warm and cozy fire while you catch up with visiting family and friends can be a perfect way to celebrate this time of the year, it can be even more festive when you serve special holiday drinks to your guests. You may already know that Atlas Chimney is the top chimney company in the Austin area. However, not only does our staff have the trusted knowledge and experience in professional chimney maintenance, repair, and installation services, but we also consider ourselves experts on the best holiday beverages to enjoy by the fireplace. We would like to share with you some suggestions of what to serve during your fireside holiday moments this year, along with a few fireplace safety reminders.


If you are hosting a holiday party at your home this year, you may be looking for the perfect cocktail to add even more cheer to the festivities. In Country Living’s “40+ Winter Drinks to Sip Around the Fireplace This Christmas,” you will find a nice variety of holiday-themed cocktails that will keep your guests warm and happy. Those who love the traditional eggnog drink will enjoy the Eggnog and Bailey’s, Cinnamon White Russian, S’mores Martini, and the Spiked Coconut Vanilla Steamer. If you would like to serve a more fruity type of cocktail, check out the recipes for the Vanilla Cranberry Mimosa and the Blood Orange Moscow Mule.


For family celebrations, Country Living also features a great deal of non-alcoholic holiday beverage suggestions that both the children and the adults will enjoy drinking by the fireplace. You will find several festive variations on hot chocolate, including Spiced Mexican, Nutella, Gingerbread, Mint White Chocolate, and Grinch. A favorite of our staff, the Peppermint Oreo Milkshake is the perfect addition to any holiday gathering. If you are looking for a new punch recipe for your holiday parties, the Christmas Day Punch not only tastes delicious; it also looks colorful and cheerful and will add to any seasonal party decor.

To be able to fully relax around the fireplace with your guests during the holiday season, you should follow a few fire safety tips. Have your chimney professionally swept and inspected before the holiday season begins. Make sure all of your holiday decorations, including your tree, stockings, and greenery accents, are placed at least three feet away from the fireplace. Place a screen in front of the hearth to protect children and pets from getting too close to the fire. Considering these fire safety practices can prevent an accidental fire from ruining your holiday celebrations.
