Nothing says “holidays” quite like the sweet scent of peppermint schnapps on Santa’s breath.

Holiday Frose is basically frose with some holiday-looking sugared berries in the glass. Voila! Eskimo-style holiday cheer!

In fact, come to think of it, this frozen libation from Sixty Vines in Plano is probably the most Texan drink on this list.
