The Gin Joint Releases Holiday Cocktail Menu



The Gin Joint, which releases a new and unique cocktail menu every season, revealed its 2020 Holiday Cocktail List on Friday.

“This year was all about making our drinks even more whimsical than years past,” said owner James Bolt. “2020 has been hard for everyone, so our winter menu was designed to put a smile on your face.”

The list is highlighted by “Everything Nice,” a concoction crafted in a partnership with Cheerwine, which mixes together Butter Washed Gin, Rum, Vermouth, Lime, Tea, Bitters, Egg White, and (of course) Cheerwine Holiday Punch.

For the whiskey drinkers, included is the “Hickory Honey Ham,” which combines Pork Fat Washed Whiskey (yes, you read that right), Luxardo, Smoked Maple, Mustard Vermouth, and Bitters.

“This cocktail kind of has an evolving meaning, Bolt said. “It was meant to reflect that old school holiday ham we all remember. The cloves, the pineapple and cherries – just a super Americana moment from our dining tables, but the name comes from one of our family’s favorite Christmas movies, Christmas with the Kranks. We all remember it was Claire’s favorite, and we hope this cocktail will be your favorite too.”
