Thumbs up What other Holiday Drinks do you love?

The Holiday season always calls for the old traditional drinks; egg nog, Tom & Jerry's, Hot Buttered Rum.

I think hot buttered rum is one of my favorites. A disc jockey in San Francisco (I think his last name was Hardwick) shared his recipe for the best hot buttered's in the world.

Bring 1 lb. of the very best unsalted butter you can get to room temp. Beat in a mixing bowl with 1 lb brown sugar until fluffy.

Meanwhile soften 1/2 gallon of the best French Vanilla ice cream you can get in a large mixing bowl. When softened beat into the butter and sugar mixture. Place "batter" in a tupperware container and return to the freezer.

To make the Hot Buttered's heat mugs with hot water. Pour out water, add 2-3 TBS of "batter" to the mug, add rum to taste and hot water. Stir until blended and top with fresh grated nutmeg. This stuff is so good, so rich, and so worth the clogging of the arteries. You can half the recipe.

Believe it or not for some reason I like White Russians during the holidays - I just use fat free half and half.

Poinsettia - like a mimosa but use cranberry juice

WOW - that hot buttered rum sounds amazing!

pds - We sell a wine-based version of Bailey's Irish Cream - I might have to try some of that in my hot chocolate! Oh, and a wine-based white chocolate Godiva - oh my - I hope it turns cold soon so I can enjoy these hot drinks!!!!

Oh, I forgot one - homemade Russian tea (not the mix you can make out of instant tea but the homemade version) and vodka with a cinnamon stick.

my faves are not really holiday drinks, per se, but more of just wintery drinks.

irish coffee - add brown sugar, nearly fill mug with bushmills or jamesons, add a splash of dark roast coffee, top with freshly whipped unsweetened heavy cream.

polish coffee - wet mug and press rim in red colored sugar, fill 1/2 way with regular coffee, fill remainder with almond liqueur and krupnik (polish honey liqueur), top with sweet whipped cream.

broken leg - 50/50 spiced rum and hot apple cider.

ooh, be careful marge. ok, i'll hold the apple cider.

i think a broken leg was so named in skiing resorts, because after a few it tends to keep you in the lodge in front of the fire as a real broken leg would.

I usually prepare mulled wine for carol singers round our way. Here's a thread which has the recipe. Personally, I'm not too keen and one glass is sufficient, but on a cold winter's night, with home-made mincepies, it goes down a treat!
