Miami's Ten Best Holiday Cocktails

Christmas is in the air. Sure, it's 80 degrees out, but Miamians are making an effort to bring the North Pole to their backyard with palm trees covered in lights, Santa in Ray-Bans, and spicy cocktails that beg to be savored.

These libations, made by some of the best mixologists in Miami, are the epitome of Christmas in a glass. Choose a drink, raise it high, and toast to friends, family, and finding the perfect present waiting for you under the tree.
