As Buddy the Elf once wisely declared, “the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” He’s going to want to cover his ears for this, because a New York City bar may have found a better tactic — holiday cocktails served in snow globes. They sound like the stuff of dreams, but we assure you they are very real. LOCL, a New York City bar in the Nylo Hotel, is serving up holiday libations in serious style, and it’s the most festive way possible to get on your holiday buzz.
Called Shakespeare’s Globe, the festive holiday drink is made with gin, root beer, vanilla syrup, cointreau, and Douglas Fir liqueur (Christmas tree-flavored booze).
But wait, there’s more! The cocktail is garnished with edible disco glitter (YES, really) and it’s almost too pretty to drink.
LOCL isn’t the only bar that’s taken its holiday beverage game to the next level. A holiday pop-up bar, Miracle on Ninth Street, will serve up festive drinks through Christmas Eve. Drinks called the “Bad Santa” and”Yippie Ki Yay MF” have quickly become hits.
If you want to celebrate and take your mind off the chilly east coast weather, Boilermaker has got you covered. The “Nantucket Sleigh-Ride,” a rum and grapefruit cocktail, is served in a festive glass with an illustration of Santa surfing.
We’ll take one of each, please.
