Deck the Halls

The extensive cocktail menu at this Christmas-themed pop-up will surely have Santa trading his ol' cuppa milk. Go for spiked classics such as egg nog shots and a cranberry negroni served in Christmas ornaments, as well as more complex pours like the flaming Pecan Flip (Ypioca cachaça, Anchor Christmas Ale, Amontillado sherry, pecan orgeat, bitters and cinnamon). Arrive early for a chance at scoring the limited Gingerbread House, one of the bar's most popular cocktails that is served in, yes, an actual gingerbread house. It doesn't get any merrier than this, kids. // Deck the Halls pop-up will be open until the New Year;1707 Powell Street (North Beach),
