So you’ve picked out your Christmas tree, untangled the damn lights, and tossed a few ornaments on the thing — you deserve a cocktail. And since we’re in the spirit, let’s pull out our favorite Yuletide liqueur: Zirbenz. That’s be “Zirbenz, Stone Pine Liqueur of the Alps.”
Made by a family-owned operation in Austria, it basically tastes the way a Christmas tree smells. Intrepid locals journey high into the Alps to pick the fruit of the Arolla Stone Pine, used to create the compelling liqueur. It’s piney, just sweet enough up front but bone-dry on the finish, and it’s about as festive as they come. Try it out in these three cocktails.
