Snoops
When we were in Lisbon earlier this year, I was introduced to the delights of white port as an aperitif, rather than a fino sherry.... I love it! And I also love a good, aged port with plenty of stilton and Isle ofMull cheddar and a few home made oatcakes.

We like eggnog (commercial) doctored with dark rum, as well as hot buttered rum, but our hot buttered rum is simple, since we usually enjoy it as a nighttime toddy - just an shot or 2 of dark rum in a mug with a tablespoon pat of butter floated on it, then the mug is filled with boiling water & some nutmeg is sprinkled on top.

As far as regular cocktails, our traditional family Thanksgiving cocktail has always been the "Scarlett O'Hara" (cranberry juice, fresh lime juice, & Southern Comfort). For Xmas & New Year's we usually have champagne.

We (the wife and I) have a capfull of dark Rum in fresh ground coffee each morning in the winter, the reason that qualifies for Holliday season is usualy because the Rum is often amongst our Christmas presents from my mother.

I think that an old favorite is being forgotten!
Punch of all things!!
Anything goes and it looks great at a party!
Add some ice cream to float on top and it is perfect for a good excuse to stand by the fire.
You can make a mile punch with Champagne or spice it up with the hard alcohol of your liking :)
BIG WARNING !!!! MAKE A SIGN FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN NOT DRINK!
If you make a good enough punch, Even a strong one you can't taste it.

Glühwein!! It's a mulled wine, but I'm not sure if it's the same as other mulled wines as I've never tried making it at from scratch to see if it tastes the same. In the German speaking countries, they serve this at the Christkindlmarkts and you can be really naughty and add a shot of rum if you are particularly cold.

Here is my favorite drink:
5 ounces good Vodka
1/3 cup orange juice
3/4 cup cranberry juice
Juice of 1 lime
Ice
After two pitchers between 6 people we were very, very merry indeed!

I thought I would bump this up for many of us to read again, and for others to add their Holiday Drinks to the list........

Enjoy!
