Nancy: What’s your favorite holiday drink?

I’m hosting a holiday party in a couple of weeks and I’m looking for a fun, special drink to serve up to my guests. I initially got excited about this recipe for Santa Clausmopolitans but I just got new carpet and there’s cranberry juice in this drink, so .. um .. NO.

I just came across a new survey that says the average American drinks TWICE as much during the holidays than any other time of year.  Makes sense, right? We’re attending more parties and holiday gatherings than we usually do. And we’re stressed. 🙂

According to this survey, our favorite holiday drinks are :

1.  Eggnog.  Hmmm .. I don’t really like eggnog. Maybe I’ll try it with rum as John suggested.  

2.  Coffee with Baileys Irish Cream. Yes, please.

3.  Holiday beers. Like a winter lager, or a gingerbread stout. Meh. My husband might like these, though. 

4.  Cider. I’d love some, thanks. 

5.  Hot buttered rum. That’s rum mixed with butter, hot water or cider, and spices. I’ve never had it but would love to try it. 

Which one of these is your favorite holiday drink? Or do you have another one?



Chicago has more of these than any other city in the U.S. What is it? Christmas caroling is the #1 outdated holiday tradition, according to a new survey. What is #2 on the list? The most expensive one of these in the country is in New York City. What is it? 1% of people do THIS during the holidays. What is it? Welcome To December 2018′ If you’re average, this will happen to you three times this month. What is it?
