Phoenix Christmas Food and Drink Guide: Restaurants, Recipes, Wine

Your lights are set and you’ve already taken a ride on the Polar Express. You’ve also likely driven to see the valley’s best holiday lights. But, if you’re like me, you’ve saved the most important details for last and are now faced with the question of what to eat and drink on Christmas weekend.

My plan is to combine ceremonial cooking with some good old fashioned amenities. I’ll bake some Christmas cookies and maybe make a batch of Sonoran tamales (which will continue to serve me well into the new year). I’m going to make a new holiday tradition by swapping Mexican chocolate atole for hot cocoa and forgoing eggnog in favor of a Puerto Rican coquito.
