Gift-giving may be over, but we still anxiously look for one last chance to celebrate the holiday season. Many Atlanta restaurants are featuring holiday cocktails through January, and we’ve rounded up a few festive favorites for you to imbibe.
45 Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard, Atlanta
Winter blues? BLT Steak has the cure for all that ails. If you’re heading Downtown, stop by for their Brit-inspired take on the traditional “Hot Toddy.” Take a sip of their Hennessy VS infused with Earl Grey Tea, paired with gingered honey and topped with a charred lemon.
75 Fourteenth Street NW, Atlanta
The “Peppermint Patty” is the bartender’s favorite during the holidays. Peppermint-infused Baileys, vodka, and mint syrup are stirred in this festive martini reminiscent of a favorite chocolate candy.
3400 Around Lenox Road, Suite 217
Kevin Bragg’s “Aged Eggnog” is perfect this time of year. It washes down smooth, featuring Evan Williams bourbon, Camus cognac, Pyrat XO rum, eggs and cream, you’ll feel the holiday cheer with every sip.
South City Kitchen- Vinings
1675 Cumberland Parkway Southeast #401, Smyrna
A nice spicy martini is reminiscent of pear gingerbread. The “Spiced Pear” is shaken with Absolute Pear vodka, Amaretto, ginger liqueur and house-made molasses spice syrup.
Veni Vidi Vici
41 Fourteenth Street, Atlanta
An ode to the Italian song, “Ave Maria” is an icy concoction of homemade Madagascar vanilla grappa, Faretti Biscotti liqueur, Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur, splash of cranberry juice and a dash of cinnamon.
