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

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.
