Christmas is less than TWO WEEKS away. Say what?! So, whether you’ve got your shopping and wrapping shenanigans well under control or you’re plotting a mad dash to the finish, unwind or lift your spirits with one of these Bonfire-approved holiday concoctions. Cheers!

Christmas Old Fashioned

Compliments of Gastronom Libations & Spirited Travel. A festive twist on an all-time favorite.

Rye (like the award-winning one from this local gem), cranberry simple syrup, two dashes bitters, orange wedge, garnished with cranberries

Mulled Wine

The perfect old-time drink to sip while you watch A Christmas Carol. (Check out this easy recipe from Gimme Some Oven.)

Dry red wine (try the Tempranillo from our client Sweet Heart Winery), orange, cloves, cinnamon sticks, star anise, honey, brandy (or your favorite liqueur)

Caramel Cheesecake Martini

One of our favorites from none other than the delectable Domenic’s Bistro & Wine Bar, a long-time client and the gracious host of our annual holiday bash.

Vanilla vodka, butterscotch schnapps, caramel, and a splash of cream

The North Pole Cocktail

You can’t squeeze any more Christmas into a cup than with this merry mix from Half Baked Harvest.

Vodka, Kahlúa, chocolate syrup, vanilla extract, molasses, ginger, and cream (don’t forget the extras to top it all off: whipped cream, candy canes, and gingerbread cookies)

Mistletoe Margaritas

No better way to say “Feliz Navidad” than with these glasses of liquid gold we discovered over at How Sweet Eats.

Grand Marnier, tequila, white cranberry juice, freshly squeezed lime juice, simple syrup, garnished with lime, cranberries, and rosemary (with salt on the rim)
