Favorite holiday drinks

This time of year, I imagine we have some favorite libations.

Eggnog w/ bourbon is the obvious one, and we had a thread about wassail recently. Mulled wine is fine (altho likker is quicker, as they say :evil: ).

Lately I've been enjoying a chai latte with a splash of amaretto. It's sweeter than I usually drink, but the flavors go well together. Something different during the cool time of the year.

Anybody have another favorite to propose?

    Warm apple cider with a shot of Captain Morgan spiced rum. Rim the cup with cinnamon sugar like you would salt on a margarita glass. Mmmm... good. I usually dump a gallon of cider in a crock pot and let it simmer. FG
  • the rum and apple cider sounds like a great "wake me up " on a day like today. 24* outside. Egg nog and a good bourbon to celebrate on Christmas otherwise beer is REALLY good. :evil:

    What tops the list here; 'Wet' Gin Martini's with a Pearl olive (shaken, not stirred).

    Been makin Whisky Old Fashions-Sweet (excellent for Thanksgiving). Alpine instant spiced cider mix with a splash of rum and hot water (belly warmers after shoveling snow).
    Wassail, making another batch tomorrow (for Xmas Eve). Martini & Rossi Asti sparkling wine, (gets the ladies in the groovin mood!!!) Hand crafted, heavy, rich and strong beers at root celler temp (48 degrees, that's how I like'em).

    Anybody care to give a case to a homeless cart pusher?
  • My family has always enjoyed Tom and Jerry's after shoveling the driveway. You can buy the mix at most liquor stores in the fridge or freezer. Add hot water and booze. Very sweet - egg whites and powered sugar for the most part - kids get it without the alcohol, they love it.
