Anchor’s Christmas Spirit is the merry result of distilling Anchor Brewing’s Christmas ale, which creates a smooth, winter-spiced spirit that’s ideal for holiday cocktails like this one from San Francisco bartender Brian Means, in which it's mixed with maraschino, cognac and bitters.

  • 3/4 ounce Gran Classico bitters

  • 1/2 ounce Chateau Montifaud Pineau de Charentes Rosso

  • 1/4 ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur

  • Garnish: Luxardo cherry


  1. Add all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a coupe glass.

  3. Garnish with a Luxardo cherry.
