This botanical booze has a long history of clever cocktails to back up its resume. It’s also worth noting, good gin comes cheaper than you might think.

When Should you Serve These Cocktails?
Personally, I’d recommend you save them for the evening or afternoon. There’s something about the spice and savory tones of these drinks that makes them feel like they’re best suited for evening gatherings and dinners.
Since they pair so nicely with holiday desserts and dishes, you’ll want to serve them in the evening with their respective foods. In other words, a bright mimosa might shine best around brunch (or lunch!) at the office party, while these luxurious cocktails have more of an evening vibe.
Serve these sweet and savory Christmas cocktails up with any of your favorite dishes! You can count on them to pair perfectly with everything from finger food and appetizers, to the main course and beyond! You can even find one to go with your plate of pumpkin pie.
