Bartenders have a rich history: They have been around since ancient times across cultures. And with over half a million bartenders in the U.S., National Bartender Day is a big holiday to celebrate. Whether you go out to a bar or restaurant in your neighborhood, make a trek to a new spot in town, or share a drink with your favorite bartending friend, December 3 is the day to show your appreciation for all the mixologists out there.

Here are a few festive drinks you could for our bartenders to mix up (or do it yourself at home) this holiday season:
