One of the best ways to celebrate the holiday season is by drinking some spirits...holiday spirits that is! From specialty creations to seasonal favorites, restaurants, bars, and other shops in Corpus Christi have holiday options to enjoy all winter long.

Cocktails

 

We might be a beach destination but that doesn't mean we don't like to add a little but of spice to our drinks in the winter time. Additions like ginger beer, peppermint, or caramel can make for a delicious seasonal treat. Here’s where to find some of our favorite winter cocktails:

The Post at Lamar Park

 

the post holiday cocktail

The Post at Lamar park is trendy, delicious, and a perfect spot to have a cocktail. Try one of their signature cocktails. This seasons best might just be the Peach Derby. This beautiful crafted drink is made with Old Forester bourbon, lemon, honey, ginger beer and peach bitters. With the array of flavors and colors, you'll be feeling cozy in no time. 

Bar Under the Sun (BUS)

Looking for dinner, great outdoor atmosphere, and a crafted cocktail? BUS is the place to be! This pet friendly bar has a variety of holiday drinks but when the weather drops, we recommend trying the Vieja Navidad, made with Añejo tequila, maple syrup, molé bitters, fernet, and a cinnamon stock to keep you warm.

Costa Sur Wok & Ceviche Bar

Want to be on island holiday time? Head over to Costa Sur Wok & Ceviche Bar for Peruvian tastes with a twist. You might have had Peruvian coffee, but we can guarantee you haven’t had it like this. A Costa Sur specialty is the Spiked Peruvian Coffee made with Baileys and Pisco. Interested in something more? Try their Mexican Coffee with Kahlua and Tequila, Bavarian Coffee with Kahlua and Peppermint Schnapps, and Spanish Coffee with Tia Maria and Rum.

Wine

If you’re looking for the warm and cheerful feeling wine gives you, try out these clubs and bistros to have you feeling like you’re in wine country:

Black Sheep Bistro

When you’re visiting Padre Island, Black Sheep Bistro is a must-visit this time of year! With seasonal wines and desserts, this warm and fuzzy atmosphere will have you leaving in a better mood. If you're feeling fancy, try Graham’s Six Grape Port! 

Vino Mio Social Club

If your idea of a good time is lounging with a glass of wine in hand, and the next glass on standby ready to be brought right out to you, Vino Mio Social Club will be your go-to. Feel right at home without the need to pour your own glass. Vino Mio has a selection of almost 50 wines, and you can’t go wrong with any of them!

Seasonal Beer

Move over pumpkin beer, it’s time for holiday spices to shine!

Lorelei Brewing Company

When you’re looking for a place to drink but want to bring the little ones and your furry friends along, Lorelei Brewing Company in the Southside should be your go-to. With beer brewed onsite, it’s hard to choose only one drink, but we recommend the Belgian Honeypot, a strong golden ale brewed with sweet honey. 

House of Rock

Live music, an incredible happy hour, and daily blackboard specials are the move this holiday season and beyond. Grab the Shiner Holiday Cheer by Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas. This German Dunkelweizen is brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans that are sure to leave you feeling good after a few sips.

While these aren’t all of the festive holiday drink options in the Gulf Coast Capital, this list is a great start to help you find your go-to drink this season. Be sure to check the current listings as seasonal drinks launch at different times at each respective location!

Don't forget you can also visit your favorite bar in Corpus Christi during the winter to sample their seasonal drink menu. 

We'll cheers to that!
