Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit like a spiked holiday beverage. Ok, that is not entirely true, but I sure do love a good holiday sip!!
Tis the season to be jolly… falalala.. these two holiday sips will be sure to get you in the “deck the halls” mood!! These are a few of my favorite adult beverages for Winter. These drinks will be fabulous at a holiday party and if children will be attending, they can still enjoy eggnog and ginger brew, without the alcohol! What are your favorite holiday drinks, please share!!
Check out my first line of mugs that are now available in my etsy shop, “I just need one cup before a mimosa!” The “spike the eggnog and let’s be jolly” print can also be found in the etsy shop. All orders must be placed by December 16 to ensure delivery by Christmas.
- 2 oz. spiced rum or light rum
- 6 oz. Trader Joe’s eggnog
- Whip cream
- Crushed candy cane
First, pour rum into the mug, then pour eggnog and stir well. Top spiked eggnog with whip cream, a dash of nutmeg, and some crushed candy cane.
Goes great with: Trader Joe’s Peppermint Pretzels (see earlier post for my top 10 Holiday List from Trader Joe’s) and Candy Canes!
- 12 oz. Trader Joe’s Ginger Brew
- 4 oz. vodka
- 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
- crushed ice
Place each ingredient in a cocktail shaker, shake well for 20 seconds. It is traditional to serve moscow mules in a copper mug with crushed ice. This fabulous copper mug and plaid napkins are from Sur La Table! Decorate with a slice of lime and a gingerbread man cookie!
Goes great with: Trader Joe’s Cocoa Drizzled Kettle Corn and Trader Joe’s Mini Gingerbread Men
Enjoy!! Happy Holidays!!
