13 Holiday Cocktails Around the World
Jamaica: Sorrel Punch
Bolivia: Biblia Con Pisco
Biblia Con Pisco is very similar to the Peruvian Algarrobina but without the namesake syrup and a few other ingredients. Bartender Michael Finsilver of Mudgie's uses pisco, eggs, sugar and a spice blend for a simple, but decedent drink.
Scotland: Hot Toddy
Chile: Cola de Mono
Chile's Cola De Mono could be described as something between egg nog and a White Russian. Bartender Joe M. Schubert, of The Whisky Parlor, points out that both dairy and non-dairy versions can be made for parties. And whether it's made with almond or whole milk, all versions are delicious.
Poland: Grzane Piwo
USA: Tom and Jerry
Cuba: Crema de Vie
Mexico: Ponche de Frutas
Cool weather means hot cocktails and if you are in Mexico consider ordering a traditional Ponche de Frutas. Bartender Jon Foley, of Relief and Resource, makes his with stone fruits, spices, rum and the all-important Piloncillo (a Mexican brown sugar).
