Classic Christmas Drinks
Everyone accuses me of being a bit of a Christmas Ham. And I guess you could say that is true. I put up my downstairs Christmas tree on Oct 30th last year, my outdoor lights go up on November 1st of every year. In fact, I have still not taken down my lighted garland from my recreation room. If I had if my way the Christmas decor would stay up all year. I guess you can blame it all on my parents. They always made the holidays a big event. Who could ever forget the anticipation of Christmas eve, just waiting for Santa to come. Or the sleepless night waiting for that Christmas day sunrise.
Anyways when it comes to Christmas or any holiday for that matter I take the cake, and I want to share some of my favorite Christmas drinks, which have become a tradition in our family and a hit at our parties.
Gordos Baileys EggNog
Now its important for this drink, that you only purchase the best eggnog, unless you want to make it yourself (I don’t have a recipe for making it as it can be a real pain if you know what I mean)
You will need
6Oz’s of your favorite eggnog
1oz of Irish Cream
1/2 oz Spiced Rum
1oz of Chocolate Milk
sprinkle of Cinnamon
Small candy cane
Add ice first (this is most important)
Add Irish cream
Add EggNog and stir
Add chocolate milk (do not stir in)
Sprinkle with Cinnamon
Add whipped cream on top and garnish with the small Candy cane.
Boy oh Boy this is one good drink and I guarantee they will become a hit to your friends and family. OK so its a little fattening, big deal its Christmas time and you should be entitle. Most important is lot’s of Kenny G Christmas music to go with the drink.
