What's your favorite beverage this time of the year? The answers certainly can vary. Among my favorites are Cranberry 7-UP and Smith's Eggnog. Our families have been known to occasionally toast with Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur served in tiny chocolate cups. Those are yum-mee! There are some of you out there that will drink the same beverages you drink all year...beer, wine, pop, tea, coffee...with little variation. Here's what Mashed.com had to say on the matter.
Raise a glass to Christmas ... Christmas isn't Christmas without a few friendly toasts, and Americans have a pretty good idea of what they like in those clinked glasses. According to a survey by Mashed, hot chocolate is far and away our holiday beverage choice. Folks who were polled chose:
- Hot chocolate - 46.5%
- Apple cider - 23.7%
- Spiked eggnog - 20.6%
- Hot toddies - 4.8%
- Mulled wine - 4.3%
Now I have taken that Hot Chocolate and kicked it up a notch with some Bailey's that comes in additional flavors including Vanilla and Salted Caramel, some Kahlua or Peppermint Schnapps. Grown Ups, give it a "shot"!
