Here’s wishing you an amazing holiday season with the utmost joy and happiness for you and your family. Now, when it comes to Christmas most people think of the decorations, the food, the Christmas tree and the impeding New Year.
But there is more than about just a handful of drinks as well that are synonymous with the holiday season, and what’s better than just brining them all into one place so that you have a bucket list of drinks to chug this holiday season:
It’s hot and it’s buttered. And though it might sound a bit gross, but a can of cider would never hurt anyone, in fact just coupled with the honey spirit it starts to sound pleasant enough.
The drink is fermented and tastes like juice, but it does get a great amount of love and following across the holiday season.
Eggnog is a drink that has not only been popular for centuries, but is consumed wholeheartedly all across the world. Made using cream, sugar, eggs and coupled with a breeze of alcohol, the drink is full of nutrients including important ones like calcium, protein, etc.
- Hot Buttered Beer
Buttered Beer can also trace its roots all the way back to medical times. It is a mix of spices, egg yolks and whip sugar. The final brewed product tastes a sweet form of beer and is a very popular Christmas drink.
- The Candy Cane
Candy cane is a cocktail that contains white chocolate liquor and hint of peppermint schnapps. You can choose to add to the visual appeal of the drink by adding a rim of crushed candy canes.
Another version of the drink made for adults is the Candy Cane Punch, which is an easy non alcoholic drink that gets the traditional Christmas flavour from the use of peppermint ice cream.
- Cranberry Margarita
Just as the name suggests the drink is a mixture of lemon, strawberries and margaritas. And since it is holiday season, you can add the traditional flavour of tart cranberries and viola, you have a tasty Christmas drink. You can also add a touch of orange liqueur for the orange flavour and get the traditional cranberry-and-fresh-orange sauce.
- Mistletoe Mojito
The Mistletoe Mojito is a mojito that is spiced up using the flavour of pomegranate. The fruit itself is deeply associated with Christmas and its even Christmas coloured. You can add to the taste of the mistletoe mojito with mint and lime.
- Gingerbread Apple Cocktail
The Gingerbread Apple Cocktail gets its signature taste from ginger liqueur and apple cider, while you can also choose to add vodka for the kick. For adding a visual appeal, you can add crushed gingersnaps to the rim and keep them in place with honey.
- Hot Buttered Rum
The drink requires spiced rum, brown sugar and creamed up with butter and spices. The resulting beverage has a slight brown shade and a slight spicy taste. The unique blend of ingredients has given the drink a traditional status and great following.
