3 Best Holiday Hot Tub Drinks You Can Enjoy In The Hot Tub


It’s the holiday season! That means festive food and drink just about everywhere you go. Why not bring the seasonal activities into the hot tub with you?

While it’s not recommended that you drink alcohol while in the hot tub or bring a glass with you, there is a variety of festive non-alcoholic hot tub drinks that can be served in plastic glasses, all enjoyed from the comfort of your spa.

Hot Tub Drink #1 – Classic Hot Tub Eggnog

Enjoy 4-5 Servings

This holiday classic can be served with or without alcohol. If you do wish to add alcohol, ensure that it is done after your hot tub soak and that you are well hydrated.


  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ vanilla extract
  • 6 egg yolks
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Whipped cream for garnish


Combine milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil. In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks and sugar until pale in color. Slowly add the hot milk mixture to the eggs, whisking continuously. Return mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat until slightly thick. Do not boil. Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream. If adding alcohol, we recommend 1 cup of bourbon or rum. Refrigerate until chilled and then serve with whipped cream.
