  2. Nuts: Swap out crushed ice and sprinkle some toasted nuts on your next bramble, fix or swizzle.

  3. Rosemary: Add few dashes of bitters on your Collin, Rickey or Gin & Tonic. A fresh sprig for garnish is also a festive touch.

Getting into the holiday spirit is easy if you live in New York City! Christmas pop-ups are taking the city by storm and we couldn’t be happier to have these decked out bars fuel our drinking festivities.

We’ve made our list and are checking it twice so we are sure to hit Eataly’s gorgeous Winter Wonderland Rooftop, Greenpoint’s Donner and Blitzen’s Reindeer Lounge which has four fireplaces to cozy up with a cocktail.

In the city, Rolf’s is covered with christmas lights and ornaments, which makes it the perfect spot to have a glass (or two!) of eggnog. Or head to The Late Late for their “Tacky Winter Takeover” and enjoy a boozy hot chocolate or red ryder which has rye, red bull plum twist and cinnamon.

If you’re stuck in LA, fear not, we have you covered. Although you won’t be bundled up, you can enjoy Here and Now’s “Blitzen’s: A Pop Up Christmas Bar” which runs through December 31st. Sip on a feliz navidad with mezcal, Lillet Rouge, Pineapple and Lime or try a Gingerbread Man with rum, sherry, gingerbread syrup, egg white, lemon and cinnamon fug butter.

No matter where you spend your holiday, there’s sure to be merriment all around.
