Since my hit counter is spinning from the number of people looking for holiday drink ideas, I thought I’d put together a list of links to a few seasonal refreshers I’ve written about over the past few years.
Christmas Rum Punch — it’s boozy and it burns! What more could you be looking for in a Yuletide tipple?
Farmer’s Bishop — Variation on the above; put some Americana in your holiday with some Laird’s apple brandy.
Tom & Jerry — the Christmas drink goes old school.
Eggnog — do I really need to explain why this is a good choice?
General Harrison’s Eggnog — Made with hard cider instead of the stronger stuff; an inviting variation.
Reveillon — Chuck Taggart’s contribution to the world of holiday drinking. I absolutely love these; on Christmas Eve (and tonight, for that matter), this’ll be what I’m mixing.
Stinger — okay, not technically a Christmas drink, but brandy and mint? C’mon! That’s Christmas!
Good Night Irene — Audrey Saunder’s take on the Stinger; my current seasonal favorite.
Colleen Bawn — okay, not a Christmas drink either, but it’s got a raw egg in there, along with some other really intriguing tasting things. A holiday cocktail for the adventurous guest.
Northern Spy — yeah, I know I said it was a Thanksgiving drink, but that fruity, boozy cinnamon thing is equally worthwhile in December.
In case I don’t get back here before the big day — Happy Holidays everyone!
