Kelli King, the booze enthusiast and cocktail connoisseur behind @DrinksInLosAngeles shared her holiday drinking guide, and it’s #amazing.
The holidays are full of family, fun, gifts, giving and, if you’re like me, booze. Drinking and the holidays go together like bagels and lox – a classic pair not to be messed with. We all have lots of reasons to drink during the holiday season. Check out a few of my favorites below.
1. I spent too much on gifts, so now I have to drink $6 wine
No, the $6 does not include a glass or a corkscrew. Good thing this bottle’s a twist off.
Velvet Moon // Cabernet Sauvignon // Trader Joe’s
2. My family is driving me crazy
Any spirit, sometimes over ice. Serve with a slice of citrus if you don’t want your protective Aunt to think you might have “a problem.”
Jameson on the rocks // Black Rose Tavern // Los Angeles, CA
3. I’m having an accidental high school reunion at my hometown bar
Try not to let your best friend order a round of shots for the bar on your tab. Also try not to give your ex-ex-ex boyfriend too much side eye.
Empty Glasses // Tipsy Goat // Thousand Oaks, CA
4. I’m drinking on vacation
Make it something tropical. Calories don’t count on islands. Or when you’re forced to spend time with your awful cousin, Karen, who won’t stop talking about her new boyfriend, Mark, who she is, “like totes marrying.”
Piña Colada // Green Chili // Hoi An, Vietnam
5. BONUS: Wellness Shots (If you live in Los Angeles)
These are great for hangovers and those nasty colds brought on by the harsh California winters. 😉
The Wellness Shot // Pressed Juicery // Locations Across the United States
