’Tis the season to celebrate a (hopefully) successful year with coworkers and get into the holiday spirit with a crafty cocktail or two.
Luckily, there are five meeting venues and attractions across North America that are serving up holiday-themed drinks to provide a bit of inspiration for meeting planners looking to shake up their events this season.
Bateaux New York offers luxury cruises for the sophisticated Saint Nick visiting the Big Apple. Its holiday-themed cruises not only provide an ideal group event option this season, but their Santa Clausmopolitan holiday concoction also adds a festive twist, featuring vodka, triple sec, cranberry and lime juice—fittingly topped with a cranberry garnish.

Westin Cape Coral in Florida is impressing attendees with this triple minty fresh boozy dessert concoction that includes peppermint schnapps, candy peppermints and a mint sprig garnish with ice cream and Godiva chocolate syrup.
At the Surfjack in Hawaii’s Waikiki, things are shaking up (snow-globe style) with coconut milk, cognac and a whole egg. This tropical take on holiday flavors includes dashes of house-made cocoa and coffee tincture, topped with a toasted coconut rim.
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in the Bahamas serves up some local Bahamian jingle juice, putting the “rum” in rum-pa-pum pum. It includes guava puree and a sugar-cookie garnish that’s so delicious, it tastes like a dessert.
