It’s the most wonderful time of year. But after hours of chaotic holiday shopping and days spent with neurotic relatives, you’ll likely need a Christmas drink to revive your holiday spirit.

Thankfully, Miami bars are shaking up holiday cheer with a host of kitschy drinks that will make you merrier with each sip. From a toasted marshmallow-topped bourbon-and-beer combo to frozen eggnog, these festive cocktails are the best gift you can give yourself.

Peppermint Mojito at Bayfront Holiday Village

301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami

Christmas in South Florida calls for holiday mojitos at the North Pole Beach Club. The refreshing creation is served in a sugar-rimmed highball glass crowned with fresh mint and pomegranate ($12). Other favorites are the Mistletoe Martini and Glacier Iced Tea, both equally festive and spirit-forward.

The stresses of the holidays require a healthy dose of Cuban coffee and booze, and that’s exactly what you’ll find in the Cuban Blizzard cocktail at the Lincoln Eatery. The cheerful libation — a blend of rum, coffee liqueur, peppermint schnapps, and a splash of cream — comes with a crushed peppermint candy rim ($15).
