9 Cocktails that Let You Chug that Cheer

View as Map

Sure, it's possible to get that festival feeling by drinking nog straight out of the carton, but this map is celebrating the slightly swankier (and arguably more social) ways to swig the spirit this year. Presenting nine seasonal cocktails that light up the town, ranging from a yam-infused rum drink to a blend that's basically praline pie in a glass. And for those who don't exactly feel merry and bright this time of year, Circa 1886 is serving up a Holiday Healer.

If your favorite bar whips up a mind-blowing hot toddy that was overlooked, make a case for it in the comments.
