The week leading up to Christmas Eve and Christmas is finally here! This can be a week full of hustle & bustle, last-minute gift shopping, and filling the week with a few festive items. In case you are out shopping or just looking for a very merry way to start your festivities, we have compiled a few things to add to your list. 

That incredible peppermint delight above? Swing by Sno-Cap (mentioned below) to grab one! 

Celebrate Craft-mas 

Local restaurant and cocktail connoisseur Craft & Vine is known to go ALL out to celebrate holidays. This year, they've celebrated Christmas all month long with 'Christmas Vacation.' This fun take on the holiday season includes transforming the restaurant and bar into a winter wonderland, complete with holiday cocktails and a themed menu.

The restaurant is closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Pepper-MINT To Be 

It might be the holiday season, but we're still celebrating with amazingly warm weather. Treat yourself with the delicious Peppermint Candy Milkshake from Sno-Cap Drive-In. This delightful blend is garnished with whip cream, chocolate chips, and a candy cane. 

Fa La La La Cocktails 

In the mood for a festive holiday cocktail before making your way under the mistletoe? Finch & Fifth is always serving up great cocktails. Try the Bonfire made with Godiva chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao liquor, housemade syrup in a martini rimmed with graham cracker crumbs and topped with a toasted marshmallow.
Enjoy their Tuesday Night Tastings where you'll likely find something just right. 

Craft & Vine is serving up the Peppermint Patty made with Titos peppermint vodka, coconut, milk, chocolate bitters, and simple syrup. Enjoy their Christmas Vacation menu all December long, which features many more themed cocktails. Open Tuesday & Wednesday this week. 

Christmas brings good cheer with the Poinsettia served at Frog Hollow Tavern - a delicious mix of Tanquery, lime juice, and spiced cranberry lavender syrup. Open Wednesday this week, we highly recommend making a reservation in advance. 

Christmas Lights & Decor

In the mood to take in the festive holiday lights? Take a stroll through downtown Augusta to see the Christmas Tree in the Augusta Common. After, enjoy the window displays from select businesses participating in the Making Spirits Bright Window Decorations Crawl on Broad Street. 

Edgar's Above Broad will be serving up cocktails with a rooftop view and a fully-lit Christmas tree for the perfect Instagram backdrop.
