DAY TEN: EGGNOG, MULLED WINE OR FROZEN MARGARITAS?

A later tradition in my house hold is what will be our drink of choice over Christmas?

Maybe this is an Australian thing, walking into the bottle shop watching people pushing out shopping carts full of beer, wine and spirits. And families in the grocery store have one cart dedicated to sodas.

Often in our family the champers bottles are uncorked and glasses with hibiscus flowers are waiting for us to fill for a breakfast cocktail

When we lived in Scotland one of our favourite things to do was go late night shopping and grab a hot mulled wine to sip on while we shopped.

One year when my parents came over we made our own mulled wine and the house smelled so fragrant and yummy. I think making our own made it even tastier! {THIS RECIPE HERE IS THE ONE WE USED}

But back in Australia, I often feel like its too hot to drink red wine, let alone hot mulled wine. And eggnog? Well eggnog is one of those drinks that I always want to try, but the sheer amount of eggs in the drinks kinda scares me! (This apparently is the ‘best’ ever recipe here!)

So my new favourite thing to do is choose a frozen cocktail to sip on over the holidays.

One year it was frozen cosmos, last year it was frozen mojitos {here} and this year I am thinking frozen margaritas .

Usually though by the end of the night I can’t be bothered pulling out the blender and the ice is long melted!

For me there is something very Christmassy about choosing a drink you wouldn’t normally have during the year and drinking over the holiday period.

And a pretty basket, with the ingredients of your friend or a family members favourite Christmas drink including the shaker and the glass, could make a very cool gift idea. Just make sure you include a glass for your friend to share with you!
