What's Your Favorite New Year's Eve Cocktail?

A couple of Beacon Hill bartenders share recipes for their favorite holiday cocktail. What are yours?

An ideal New Year's Eve cocktail should be light but boozy, festive, and easy to drink. Bartenders at Cheers and the Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro share their recommendations for drinks to ring in the new year. What are yours? Let us know in the comment section below.

Beacon Hill Hotel and Bistro's "Canneberge," $11

French for "cranberry," Canneberge is a well-balanced, refreshing cocktail with a slight tanginess and not too much sweetness. Beacon Hill Bistro makes its own cranberry- and cucumber-infused gin for this drink, which lends it mellowness and complexity. Here's how to make it, or you can stop by the bar for a drink tomorrow night:

4 oz. of cranberry- and cucumber-infused gin

1/2 oz. of lime juice

1/2 oz. of simple syrup

3 oz. tonic water

Garnish with fresh cranberries

Cheers Boston's French Raspberry Martini, $9

The famous Beacon Street bar also recommends a slightly fruity cocktail, but this time with bubbles, for New Year's Eve. Below is the recipe, or you can drop by Cheers, which has a $5 cover tomorrow night, one of the lowest in town, according to its bartender.

Put ice and water in a glass, set aside to chill

Combine and shake:

1 1/2 to 2 shots of raspberry vodka

1/4 shot of triple sec

splash of cranberry

Pour the ice water out of the chilled glass and the shaken drink into it. Top off with champagne.

Garnish with a lemon twist
