Join Hotel Palomar’s Square 1682 this holiday season with an advent calendar for adults during their fun promotion, 12 Nights of Christmas Cocktails.
Each night leading up to Christmas day, starting tonight, December 12, will feature an expertly crafted libation from the special menu created by mixologist Chauncey Scates of Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. and Stateside.
Drinks range from the contemporary to the classic, including a Mexican spiced hot chocolate spiked with reposado (the Heat Miser Trips South) and a peppermint vodka martini that goes by the Mean Girls Christmas.
The special menu wraps up the night before Christmas Eve with a quintessential American Christmas cocktail, the Tom & Jerry — a sumptuous spiced blend of milk, butter, and egg combined with brandy and rum. Check out the complete cocktail list below.
In the spirit of giving, Square 1682 will be donating $1 from every featured cocktail sold to Fresh Artists, an organization helping to support under-funded art programs in the Philadelphia region.
