Tis the season at Tommy Bahama! The iconic island lifestyle brand has crafted three new cocktails to help you celebrate the holiday season.  The Worker Bee is truly unique using the warmth of bourbon as its base mixed with St. Germa Elderflower and Aperol which gives it the red holiday hue.  Tommy Bahama puts a twist on the much-loved eggnog with its Coconut Eggnog Martini that has nice kick with the addition of coconut rum and bourbon.  The Pomegranate Mimosa is a cheerful Champagne cocktail that uses Pomegranate syrup, fresh orange juice and Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur which brings new flavor and meaning to ‘mimosa.’
