Holiday Cheer

The holiday season is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than with a festive cocktail? Check out some of the hottest restaurants’ coolest new beverages.

BuffBurger

Cocktail empress Laurie Harvey’s latest creations can be found at BuffBurger in Montrose. Try the picture-perfect cranberry mule, made with Deep Eddy and garnished with fresh berries and rosemary.

Benjy’s

The fall sangria here includes red and white wine, brandy, and orange-and-lychee liqueur. And if you’re jetting off to the beach — or just wish you were — this season, kick things off with the pineapple-savvy Rum with a View.

Eloise Nichols 

Try the Most Wonderful Thyme of the Year at this hot spot’s monthly mixer on Dec. 6. “Less-is-more,” says Adair Concepts’ beverage director Danny Frownfelkter of his new creation, with pisco, lemon and thyme, “freshly blossomed and picked.”

Hotel ZaZa

The sexy hotel’s latest cocktail menu, dreamed up by F&B director Jacob Weaver, includes a spiced-cherry Old Fashioned and, naturally, a pumpkin-spice-latte martini.

Star Fish 

This season is all about the pie, right? Try yours in a cocktail, with Star Fish’s Apple Pie Mule: butter-washed apple brandy, lemon and apple-pie spice.

State Fare

At State Fare, a fig-infused rye whiskey and Cocchi vermouth make for a toast-worthy Fig Manhattan.
