25 Days of Christmas Cocktails, Day 24: And to All a Good Night

Photo: Stuart Mullenberg
Although tonight at the Rob Roy, Anu Apte will be serving up her Chartreuse Blazer, we couldn't resist keeping with our own Imbibe tradition of sharing our favorite Christmas Eve cocktail. A warming mix of tequila, bourbon and two kinds of bitters make this digestif the perfect way to tuck yourself (and the other 21-and-overs) into bed on this Christmas Eve.

And to All a Good Night
1½ oz. bourbon
¾ oz. reposado tequila
¾ oz. Cherry Heering
2 dashes orange bitters
1 dash Angostura bitters
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: cordial
Garnish: orange twist (optional)

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir until cold. Strain into a glass and garnish.

Makes 2 servings.
