We Love To Drink! We Love Drinks!

We Love Drinking at Christmas Time!

What do you drink at Christmas time? Frankly, we love our eggnog and alcohol. The Puerto Rican eggnog, also known as Coquito adds something special to our holidays, and while it may be dangerous to drink it throughout the year, if you are watching your weight, we tend to excuse ourselves during the holidays and indulge. If you like eggnog, and think eggnog cannot get any sweeter, Coquito is a drink of the angels. The Puerto Rican angels, that is. It is blissfully whipped to perfection with every sip. Making it takes some time, but it is easy when you have all the ingredients. It gets dangerous because once you start... you will want to drink Coquito all the time.

Coke and rum is still a favorite of ours to sip on during some nice holiday television. Easy to make, easy to be fulfilled, and easy to become relaxed and drunk if you prefer.

We also cannot forget our wonderful gingerbread White Russian, with a milky sweet cinnamon flavour.

Want something sweet and slightly fruity? Apple Cider Shandy!

Want something hot and alcoholic? Guinness, Whiskey, and Baileys Hot Chocolate! Don't forget the marshmallows!

If all else fails, you could turn to delicious Red or White wine for the evening!

Or one of these 12 Christmas drinks presented in the infographic below!

We love our alcohol and we know you do too!

Please drink responsibly and have a wonderful holiday season!
