If it’s ‘Tis the season to be jolly, what better way to unleash that festive cheer than through the magical elixirs? Some legit alchemy happens when you drink a Christmas drink that transforms ordinary evenings into holiday magic. So it’s time to crank up the tunes, deck the halls, and drink some delicious Christmas drinks.

With Christmas full-on engulfing us, we’ve compiled a list of Christmas crackers and where to find them to help you get in the spirit.


Irish Coffee

First up on our Christmas journey is the classic Irish Coffee. A steaming mug, the robust aroma of coffee, a dash of Irish whiskey, and a dollop of whipped cream on top. It’s transcendence itself. The whiskey’s warmth and the coffee’s richness blend seamlessly, creating a vibe that whispers, “This is Christmas” like a sweet nothing in your ear.
