    Default Christmas 'Spirits'

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    What are your favorite 'spirits' (liquid libations) that get you through the holidays?

    I just picked up a couple bottles of O'Reillys white chocolate Irish Cream
    12-pack of Becks beer
    Di'Saronno Amaretto
    and a few of those little bottles of schnapps that they keep at the checkout counter. (yea I need a little Christmas cheer to deal with the relatives)

    Bottoms up!!!!

    I'm going to a semi-annual holiday get-together with friends this Saturday, and I have no idea what, or even if, I want to drink.

    The default is Crown shots with Diet Sundrop as a chaser, which has never done me wrong during or after the festivities.

    I'm a semi-annual drinker as it is, and maybe I shouldn't stray from the old familiar at this point.

    I have been known to enjoy a cold Bass, though.

    Cheers, everyone. Be merry, be safe, and remember, slow and steady wins the race.

    Before I backed off booze I would get a bottle of Cabo as a gift to myself at Christmas. Top shelf shit is what I miss. But my wallet ,liver, and kidney don't.

    Love Amaretto and Baileys - but the one with which I always associate Christmas is Warninks' Advocaat.

    Nice on its own (just a tiny amount though, as it's incredibly rich) or made into a Green Zombie, by mixing it with Blue Curacao (we normally use the "Bols" brand) and lemonade.

    Enjoy!

    No sir, I have not. I'm a bit leery of buying anything other than the standard Crown. I've heard the maple version becomes entirely too sweet really quickly, and I'm afraid the apple would as well.

    Maple Crown was horrible. Finished the entire bottle but with scorn. Overbearing false flavor.

    Learned the hard way to mix it with Vernors just as the bottle was almost gone.
