These Christmas Cocktail recipes are festive, crowd-pleasing and feature vodka, bourbon, gin, mezcal and more!
One of my favorite cocktail recipes is this fig-infused bourbon. It’s easy to make, has a sweet flavor and silky mouthfeel, and makes a fabulous holiday gift. It requires two weeks of infusing time, so plan ahead!
