Today’s ‘Thirsty Thursday’ features festive holiday cocktails created by bartenders at some of the top hotels in the United States. I can’t wait to try some of these at home over the next month!

This little glass of heaven known as the Mint and Chip is from the Bleau Bar at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami. Made from rum, white créme de cacao, green créme de mint, and half-n-half, this is clearly a special occasion cocktail. The recipe is here.
