What says holidays to you? For us, it's friends, family, homemade gourmet food gifts, some festive entertaining, and a seasonal cocktail or two. 

And, as Californians, we're all about cocktails with flavors of the Golden State. As in ones that celebrate the season's produce -- from pomegranates to grapes and lots and lots of citrus -- and local wines.

Since California is the top producer of wine in the United States, it's only natural that those cocktails be made with wines ranging from a classic buttery Chardonnay and a fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon to a bubbly brut sparkling wine and a spiced Zinfandel.

The best holiday cocktails are ones that are easy to make, very festive, and can be served at a  variety of gatherings, be it a cocktail party, at a winter brunch, or simply cozying up next to a fire with a good book. 

In partnership with California Grown and California Wines, we're sharing drink ideas for all of those occasions, so you have plenty of inspiration for how to toast the holiday season. 

From mulled wine to red wine hot chocolate and sangria to twist on the classic kir royale, here are 15 wine-based cocktail recipes:
