The bar has been overtaken by garland, Christmas knick-knacks, trees, and presents.

The holiday menu includes several drinks and food items, all of which will be available through December 30.

Cookies and Milk – $27

Assorted Christmas cookies and coquito

jock-christmas-5-4450548

Coquito means “little coconut” in Spanish and is a traditional Christmas drink from Puerto Rico made with coconut milk and rum.

jock-christmas-9-8141639

It’s more like eggnog than milk. It’s thick and creamy and ours had some chunks in it. The taste of alcohol isn’t very present.

jock-christmas-11-1774142

It’s not the way to go if you expect a milk consistency, but it’s definitely enjoyable with the cookies.

jock-christmas-6-5723553

Among the cookies is a soft oatmeal cookie sandwich with a white sugar glaze, filled with a thin layer of cookie butter. It’s a great item and a nice surprise, but unfortunately, there’s only one on the plate.

The stars are sugar cookies with berries baked in and a berry jam filling in the center. The filling isn’t very present and it’s a very light cookie.

The mittens have a rich dark chocolate taste.

jock-christmas-10-6364254

Last year’s plate included mint cookies, but we’re fine with them being left out this year.

Claus Mo – $16

Traditional cosmopolitan with a shimmery twist, garnished with red sugar

jock-christmas-14-8023949

This is pretty simple. It tastes like your classic cosmopolitan with a sugar rim. It’s not overly alcoholic.

jock-christmas-15-5594098

Yule Mule – $13

Gin, ginger beer, cranberry juice, and rosemary simple syrup, with a holly leaf sugar garnish

jock-christmas-16-7214026

This takes some getting used to. At first, it tastes like you’re drinking a fresh-cut Christmas tree, but it settles after a few more sips.

jock-christmas-17-7401964

It’s not our favorite on the menu, but if you like a mule with a twist, this might be the way to go.

Holiday Lights Deviled Eggs – $12

Colored deviled eggs with tobiko and shrimp

jock-christmas-food-6-9760217

This might be our favorite on the holiday menu. It has a nice mix of flavors.

jock-christmas-food-3-3519460

The shrimp on top was cooked well. But if you’re not a fan of cold seafood, this may not be for you.

jock-christmas-food-5-1975689

We were relieved that the egg coloring didn’t color our mouths.

Venison Sliders – $14

jock-christmas-food-7-4373866

These are the same sliders as last year. The deer meat taste is very outspoken.

jock-christmas-food-9-8039101

That combined with the cranberry sauce means this isn’t everyone’s favorite.

jock-christmas-food-11-6546268

Lump of Coal Dessert – $12

Cookies and cream ganache “coal”

jock-christmas-food-19-9368703

This item is new this year and will definitely be a go-to “Instagrammable” treat. It comes served under a cloche, which the Cast Member then lifts to an outpouring of smoke.

jock-christmas-food-18-7763503

Beneath the cloche are the “lumps of coal” sitting on a fire.

jock-christmas-food-13-1156728

The coal is crushed up Oreo cookies with chocolate ganache to keep it all together. It’s then dipped in chocolate to form a lump.

jock-christmas-food-14-3593306

It’s a very chocolatey dessert, so we recommend dipping it in the provided vanilla sauce for a delicious balance.

jock-christmas-food-16-4472784

Besides being very dramatic and photogenic, this is one of our favorite desserts this year.

jock-christmas-food-17-8808912

Fried Brussel Sprouts – $8

Fried Brussel sprouts with bacon vinaigrette

jock-christmas-food-b-3-8146940

This may not be the prettiest dish on the menu, but it’s still great.

jock-christmas-food-b-1-4256006

It’s a nice portion and the Brussels sprouts are nice and crispy. They taste great with the bacon vinaigrette.

jock-christmas-food-b-2-4022026

Had the bacon not been included, it would have been a perfect vegetarian option.

Ham and Brie Flatbread – $9

Shaved ham and brie cheese, pomegranate seeds, granny smith apples, apple vinaigrette, and watercress

jock-christmas-food-b-5-3702816

There’s a lot going on with this flatbread, but the crust is perfect and the ham and brie are fantastic.

jock-christmas-food-b-6-6728314

Other flavors show up and then quickly upstage each other.
