Any good holiday party shares a few key components: a killer playlist, an energetic crowd and, of course, a festive beverage or two. Instead of plying your friends with mulled wine or store-bought nog, we recommend hiring a pro. Your guests will be impressed, and you’ll have time to enjoy the party instead of worrying about the status of everyone’s glass. Here, three stellar Toronto mixologists who will bring the bar to you.
