While it might be the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be the most stressful. So why not take the edge off with one of these boozy holiday cocktails?

Cocktails featured in this segment include the spiced pear shrub from The Walnut Room at Macy’s; a spiked eggnog at Tack Room in Pilsen; and glogg, a warm, spiced wine at Simon’s Tavern in Andersonville.

One cocktail that will certainly warm you up is the boozy hot chocolate at Cindy’s, atop the Chicago Athletic Association hotel. This concoction pairs dark Belgian cocoa and warm cream with Cynar and sherry to create one delicious drink.
