Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery (Royal Oak, Ann Arbor, and Detroit) has a few ideas for holiday cocktails, and they sound delicious. All of these cocktails can be found at Jolly Pumpkin this month, as well.

Bourbon Apple Pie – Follow up a holiday meal with this dessert cocktail featuring warm bourbon mixed with apple cider, cinnamon and clove infused simple syrup. If you're really looking to spoil your guests, consider topping the glass with caramel!

Jolly Pumpkin is also featuring other holiday cocktails this winter including:

  • Scorched Butter Mule – A gentle mix of vodka and butterscotch complimented with lemon juice and topped with Reed’s Ginger Beer.
  • Sage Against the Machine – A simple winter cocktail that's sure to please everyone from Aunt Sally to Cousin Rick containing an even mix of gin, sage maple water and bitters.

While the brewery is closed on Christmas Day, Jolly Pumpkin invites the community to enjoy cocktails, craft beer and its phenomenal selection of food from 10 a.m. to midnight on New Year's Eve and throughout the New Year.
