For those in need of a defrosting, wrap your hands around a hot mug of XMAS Tea ($10), infused with red wine, cardamom, cinnamon, orange, apples, dark berries, brandy and Drambuie; or toast your body with Natural is the Mystic ($12), mixed with JP Weiser vanilla spiced whiskey, homemade orange cello, hot water, fresh orange peels, and a tea ball steeped with cloves and Stevia leaves for sweetener. For patrons looking for an alternative to the traditional eggnog, savor the Dr. Phil’s 3-Cream Coquito ($12), blended with evaporated milk, condensed milk, fresh coconut cream, Bacardi white, Onyx 111 moonshine, cinnamon, nutmeg, and thyme.
