From cider to nogs, cranberries to figs, these Christmas miracles are just the trick to get you feeling
Citizen Public Houe All Saints cocktail drunk jolly. Sassi Hot Apple Pie Cocktail
This North Scottsdale Italian eatery is offering two seasonal drinks including a Hot Apple Pie cocktail with Tuaca liqueur, apple cider, whipped cream and cinnamon; as well as a Fig Sidecar, featuring Fig infused Remy, Cointreau, and lemon juice.

This Old Town Scottsdale establishment is delivering a seasonal selection of holiday-inspired cocktails such as the Rye's Wide Open featuring Wild Turkey rye whiskey, spiced apple cider, Fever-Tree bitter lemon soda, and sage; and also the All Saints using Zacapa 23 Solera rum, sugar-squash simple syrup, and sherry.
RUMbar at The Breadfruit
The RUMbar The Fruit Cake
The rum-only restaurant proves that exclusivity doesn't limit you from some holiday whimsy. It has whipped up The Fruit Cake featuring Clément V.S.O.P. Rhum Agricole Vieux, strawberry preserve, aged stone fruits, lemon, grapefruit, and cherry bitters. It's quite possibly the most exotic holiday cocktail you'll find this season.
St. Francis Red Apple Sangria
This Central Phoenix restaurant gets serious points for taking two of our favorite things and combining them into one glass.
Part cider, part sangria, the Red Apple Sangria at Saint Francis is a concoction of brandy, apple cider, red wine, citrus, and spice. It's further proof that sangria can and should be enjoyed all year round.
If you're looking for something a little warmer, St. Francis has also been serving up traditional Hot Toddy's during its weekend morning happy hour.
