25 Days of Christmas Cocktails, Day 24: And to All a Good Night

Photo: Stuart Mullenberg
Although tonight at the Rob Roy, Anu Apte will be serving up her Chartreuse Blazer, we couldn't resist keeping with our own Imbibe tradition of sharing our favorite Christmas Eve cocktail. A warming mix of tequila, bourbon and two kinds of bitters make this digestif the perfect way to tuck yourself (and the other 21-and-overs) into bed on this Christmas Eve.

And to All a Good Night
1½ oz. bourbon
¾ oz. reposado tequila
¾ oz. Cherry Heering
2 dashes orange bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: cordial
Garnish: orange twist (optional)

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir until cold. Strain into a glass and garnish.

Makes 2 servings.

25 Days of Christmas Cocktails, Day 15: Christmas Orange

A bit like the foil-wrapped chocolate oranges that Santa used to leave in your stocking every year, but all grown up.

Christmas Orange
1 ½ oz. reposado tequila
½ oz. Grand Marnier
¼ oz. crème de cacao
¾ oz. horchata (made from scratch, or purchased at Mexican shops or restaurants)
1 whole egg (pasteurized if you like)
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: rocks glass
Garnish: orange wheel

Add all ingredients to an ice-filled shaker. Shake vigorously and double strain into a rocks glass. Garnish.
