By  | 

The holiday season is a time for feasting with family, giving gifts, and toasting with tasty libations. Forgo the conventions of eggnog and spiked punch for one of these seasonal cocktails crafted by some of San Diego’s best mixologists.

The experts at Moniker Cocktail Co. created the Dream Work for the holidays. This yuletide take on a gin sour is made with an egg white base and Amaro liqueur, and is enhanced with spiced pear and apricot flavors, making an oh-so-jolly refresher.
