Happy alcoholidays! Raise a toast to the most wonderful time of the year when Holiday Spirits hosts a holly, jolly cocktail festival on Saturday, Nov. 9.

This new festival will offer visitors 12 drinks of Christmas since each ticket allows the holder 12 sample-size cocktails. Stroll through First Tennessee Pavilion sipping cocktails, listening to yuletide music and waving to the big man in red. Photos with Santa at the photo booth and access to a mini gift market are also part of the fun.

Food and full-size drinks will be available for purchase as well.

Representatives of nearly two dozen spirits brands will prepare their most festive holiday cocktail.
