Christmas in a Glass!

  • Details
  • Related Items

The first time I ever had a Lion’s Tail I thought it tasted like Christmas in a glass, and it immediately became my go-to libation of the holiday season. This classic cocktail offers up the perfect, winter warming combination of bourbon, citrus and spice that dances on the palate. We’ve played around with many twists on the original theme and are including recipes for the “classic” and “spice-lover’s” versions for you to enjoy.
