Cocktail Your Way Through Christmas

For more than a month now, we've been subjected to the full holiday sensory experience—baking, lights, tinsel, shopping, music. Now it's finally time to sit back and enjoy the season. And how better to relax than fixing a round of delicious cocktails?

Here are five drinks to accompany your most beloved holiday traditions. (And you can find even more recipes for elixirs and baked goods in our Holiday Entertaining Guide.)

Merry Christmas!
