Oh, the holidays. Such a joyous time of year when we're all reminded that it's better to give than to receive and that family and friends are truly the most important part of life. But for all the beauty and spiritual significance of the season, the holidays can be a time of serious stress. (Pepper spray delirium at WalMart, what?!) So let's all take a deep breath, remember the immortal words of Willy Wonka - "Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker" - and get our drink on. Here are 30 places for scrumptious holiday cocktails in Los Angeles and Orange County.

'Pine Bough' At Freddy Smalls

This brand-new West LA gastropub has a cool NYC vibe and lots of holiday cheer with the Pine Bough created by David Fleisher (formerly of Seven Grand). Made with Scarlet Ibis rum, Stone Pine liqueur, cranberry juice and a dash of orange bitters, it's shaken with ice and garnished with lemon peel and a sprig of rosemary for a Christmas touch. Price: $12.
