Christmapolitan

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

This is the perfect Christmastime Cosmopolitan. Created by Nico de Soto of New York’s annual Christmas-themed pop-up bar, Miracle, it’s a holiday twist on the classic made with St-Germain in place of triple sec and a homemade spiced cranberry sauce instead of the usual juice, which gives the drink a more viscous texture. Fig bitters top it all off with extra seasonal cheer. Bright, tart and amazingly refreshing, it’s a gorgeous drink for a holiday party—or, simply, a gulp of relief after a long day of tree trimming and Xmas shopping.
