4. Whitey on the Moon at The Corner

Whitey on the Moon -- a blend of Death's Door white whiskey, clove, milk, and lemon zest -- has all the flavor of a nog without the heaviness. It's making a comeback as the cocktail of the week for Christmas for $10.

3. Drinking Room's Pear Noel

Giorgio Rapivacoli's pop-up at the Hotel Astor reinvents the holiday cocktail with the Pear Noel, a mix of holiday-spiced Scotch, Velvet Falernum, and roasted pear butter ($12). But hurry: The cocktail -- and the pop-up -- disappear at the beginning of the new year.
