Toronto's Christmas Cocktails You Need To Try This Holiday Season In The West End

It's time to get festive and with only weeks left until Christmas, you need to indulge in all the holiday splendour you can. We may not be able to enjoy cocktails on sunny patios, but 'tis the season to enjoy festive drinks instead. Toronto venues are serving boozy beverages to keep your Christmas lit this year, and you'll want to try them all. Visit the West End to indulge in some heart-warming Toronto Christmas cocktails this season.

These seven Toronto spots have spiked drinks that are perfect for cold winter nights. 

Satisfy your sweet tooth with boozy hot chocolate and creamy eggnog, or treat yourself to mulled wine and hot toddies.

This year, the West End will be home to two limited-time Christmas pop-ups, and you can't let the season pass you by without visiting them both. So grab your significant other or best friend for a night out, and go visit these seven holiday hotspots in the same neighbourhood. 

Take a tropical Christmas vacation at the tiki-themed Sippin' Santa, and step into a Yuletide wonderland at Miracle Toronto.

Celebrate Christmas like a wizard at the Lockhart, which offers lots of beverages worthy of a snowy Hogwarts day.

You can also venture to other areas of Toronto, where you'll find more festive drinks. 

The Thirsty Elf is a brand new pop-up bar launching at the Fairmont Royal York, and it's bringing tons of Christmas spirit with it.
