For the Christmas season in lockdown, we decided to bring back the cocktail a day from earlier in the pandemic, but this time as an Advent calendar.
We mostly made drinks from the Aviary Holiday drink book. The drinks are generally excellent but take some work and require you to have an extensive liquor selection. Among the mix, we added in some more approachable drinks as well as some classics.
The egg nog was slightly different; we tried out aging it and thought the results were great. You can follow Alton Brown or Kenji from Serious Eats if you're interested in replicating it.
The Cider Margarita, Coquito, Key Lime Mimosa, Pumpkin Royal Fizz, and Hot Buttered Rum were our favorites.
