Mine is Galliano (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galliano_(liqueur)). Pricey compared to beer, but what the hell. A hundred bucks for 3 bottles for Thanksgiving (375ml), Christmas (750ml), and New Years (750ml) is worth it.

Class 6 store at Belvoir had a sale going. $43 per 750 ML bottle. That's less than most places get for the 12-year-old scotch, and there's no tax.

If I was still drinking that is what I would be having.

Coca Cola. I like those holiday cokes even though people confuse them for diet.

Oh yeah, adult beverage. Put some rum in it.

Beaujolais Noveau. It's fresh red french wine without any preservatives. It's only good for a couple of months, but it is a good red wine that tastes good with turkey.

I make champagne punch in huge quantities for our annual Christmas party:

2 bottles champagne
1 cup cognac
1 cup orange liqueur (Cointreau or Triple Sec)

Last year I went through eight bottles of champagne, to give you an idea; my book club was devouring the alcohol-soaked fruit at the bottom of the bowl, once the ice ring melted.

I like Wine. Red Wine.

But I had a home brew Raspberry Porter this weekend that was one of the best beers I've ever had.

How many cabs did you have to call for your book club members?

Yes, it's pretty potent stuff. We stopped pouring when one of them started singing Christams carols in Chinese.

Now that is strong stuff! :eek:

I'm pretty traditional, I like eggnog spiked with Captain Morgain spiced Rum. Sprinkled with cinnamon.

I also make a hot apple cider with mulling spices I buy from Williams Sonoma...(non alcoholic)I usually drink that when I put up my Christmas tree...which is usally the weekend after Christmas...but I will be putting it up this coming weekend instead.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the holiday season, yes I do know the true meaning of Christmas...but like the romans, I like the festivities more:o
