Because man cannot live on gluvine alone, unless that man is named Jürgen, the folks at PDX's Eastside Distilling just added a trio of limited-edition holiday liqueurs to their already ridiculous offerings -- and an added gift, they want to make you the best elven bartender since Tom Cruise with these Thrillist-exclusive cocktails
The Santa Royale Holiday Spice Liqueur gets cut w/ Grand Marnier, a little OJ who was just great in the midget version of Naked Gun, and a small scoop of lemon sorbet, then gets served in a martini glass. Get the recipe here
Frosty the Snowman In order to make you a holly jolly soul, Eastside's Eggnog Liqueur gets blasted with whipped cream, which liquefies in the shaker before you pour it into a rocks glass with crushed ginger snaps stuck to the rim. Here's how to make it
Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer Grandma will definitely be stumbling around people's roofs, and other reindeer-traffic-heavy areas, after a few of these candy-flavored cocktails featuring Peppermint Bark Liqueur mixed with rum and served with a garnish of crushed candy canes. Become Granny's new favorite with this recipe.

1512 SE 7th Ave, Portland, OR 97214
Operating out of SE PDX's Distillery Row, Eastside Distilling has been using locally-produced spirits to produce high-quality, hand-crafted cocktails since '09. They've been responsible for launching a number of award-winning labels, including Burnside Bourbon, Portland Potato Vodka, and the recent addition Cherry Bomb Whiskey. No word from Joan Jett on that last one.
