Whether it’s winding down at the end of a day of holiday festivities or an afternoon pick-me-up from being out and about, we’ve rounded up our favorite local holiday-inspired beverages to enjoy around town this season. 

Christmas Cocktails at Yola @yolacocinamexicana

YOLA Cocina Mexicana

Relatively new to town, Yola Cocina Mexicana does not disappoint with bold flavors and their cocktail menu is no exception. They’ve thoughtfully curated a seasonal menu including a Smokey Cider Margarita with Mezcal and Apple Cider for a wintry take on a classic Mexican cocktail.

The Post cocktails Steven Rodriguez

The Post at Lamar Park

Well known around town for their substantial menu of craft cocktails, head here to check out their new featured drinks that celebrate the flavors of the winter season. Be sure to order the Unclothed Earth with a unique combination of Bourbon, Amaro and chocolate bitters. For something a little brighter, try the Raspberry Rush with raspberry bourbon, honey and citrus.

Crafty Coffees

Coffee Waves Corpus Christi Steven Rodriguez

Coffee Waves

This quaint coffee shop just off ocean drive is a local favorite. Try out their fresh holiday menu featuring a Gingerbread Latte, Candy Cane Cold Brew and Peppermint Mocha.

Costa Sur

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. Try their Mexican Coffee with Kahlua and Tequila, Bavarian Coffee with Kahlua and Peppermint Schnapps, and Spanish Coffee with Tia Maria and Rum.

Classic Creations

Cassidy's Pub - Jamison @cassidyirishpub

Cassidy's Irish Pub

Located in the heart of downtown, this casual pub has crafted a classic cocktail menu with a seasonal twist. Stop here after holiday festivities for a Cassidy’s Hot Toddy, Peanut Butter White Russian, or Granny’s (spiked) Hot Chocolate just to name a few!

The Lookout Cocktail @bluffslookout

The Lookout at Bluff's Landing

When you find yourself in Corpus Christi, having cocktails waterfront is a must and the newly renovated restaurant at Bluff’s Landing is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy dinner and drinks right on the Laguna Madre. They have crafted a seasonal cocktail menu including a Spiced Sangria with spanish wine, spiced brandy and blackberries. For something tropical with seasonal flair, try their Pompano with coconut rum, pomegranate, meyer lemon and coconut.

Seasonal Beer

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.

Lorelei Brewing Company

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.
