This easy crafty cocktail from Charleston’s Lenoir Restaurant gets its name from a historical Southern greeting that was derived from the tradition of waking on Christmas morning and rushing to say, “Christmas Gift!” before anyone else. The person was then greeted in return with their gift.

  • ½ ounce falernum
  • ¼ ounce amaretto
  • ½ ounce lime juice
  • Cheerwine Holiday Punch
