Aberdeen Street Social

Serving up Mulled Wine ($50) for Christmas, we can’t wait to sit in Aberdeen Street Social’s fairy-lit outdoor area and toast with the warm spiced drink. Made with brandy, orange, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and anise, you can even choose to have yours served with additional spike of Scotch whisky ($70), or opt for the Mulled Cider ($60), served with spices and stewed fruits, or the rich, creamy Social Eggnog ($100).

Potato Head

With two joyful specials, Potato Head is the place to go to this silly season. The Balinese-style Festive Punch ($99), features rum, brandy, coconut, sherry, and an injection of Indonesian spices, and is sure to pack a punch on flavour! Also available is the Kelimutu Christmas Shot ($99) – a quick nip of whisky, tamarind, cinnamon, and port, which is lit on fire for good measure.

The Beer Bay

It may be obvious by now that we’re kind of big fans of mulled wine. And one of our favourite places to head to for a taste of this festive tipple when temperatures drop is The Beer Bay. For just $99 per serving you’ll get a pint size glass (or $55 for a small), which will should warm you up as you gaze across the harbour and take in the twinkling Christmas displays.

Le Rêve

Perched high above Causeway Bay, the angels must be smiling on Le Rêve this season as the fine dining retso is serving up not one, but two festive cocktails. The Snowman’s Secret ($130) has a creamy texture with chocolate, refreshing citrus flavours and a warm ginger note, topped off with a gingerbread man wearing a snowman costume. The Fruit of Sin ($130) is a sophisticated take on the classic mulled cider, featuring a warming base of Calvados, and finished with rose syrup and apple juice.

Commissary

California-inspired eatery, Commissary, is also offering up a duo of festive drinks this Christmas. Sit back and sip on Spiced Caramel Lattes ($40), or warm up with the Bourbon Eggnog ($80), a warming tipple of bourbon, maple syrup, cream, eggs and nutmeg.
