It's the most wonderful time of year. But after hours of chaotic holiday shopping and days spent with neurotic relatives, you'll likely need a Christmas drink to revive your holiday spirit.

Thankfully, Miami bars are shaking up holiday cheer with a host of kitschy drinks that will make you merrier with each sip. From a toasted marshmallow-topped bourbon-and-beer combo to frozen eggnog, these festive cocktails are the best gift you can give yourself.

Christmas in South Florida calls for holiday mojitos at the North Pole Beach Club. The refreshing creation is served in a sugar-rimmed highball glass crowned with fresh mint and pomegranate ($12). Other favorites are the Mistletoe Martini and Glacier Iced Tea, both equally festive and spirit-forward.
