IDEALLY, IF YOU’RE around loved ones, you won’t want for hugs this holiday season—but should you find yourself in the odd emotional limbo of wanting hugs, yet being so full that you never want to be touched by anyone ever again … well, there’s an app for that. Or should we say, an aperitif?

YOU DON’T NEED us to remind you how stressful the holidays can be. Whose house are we going to for dinner? Who’s bringing the green-bean casserole? Why does Uncle Ray always want to talk politics? It’s enough to drive anyone to drink. Thankfully, these seasonal cocktails have arrived on bar lists at the adults’ table just in time for the holidays.
