Christmas party drinks

cmillerNovember 19, 2001

I am having a Christmas party and would like to serve apple cider and eggnog. What liquor is usually mixed with these drinks? I was thinking rum but is there another as well? I wanted this to be the only alcohol - perhaps I will also serve Champagne. Would it be okay to just have a carafe of rum on the buffet with regular eggnog and hot cider and guests can mix it themselves? How would you handle this? I want it to be very elegant. Des anyone know of a good Champagne that they would recommend - nice but not too pricey? Thanks for your help.

If you want to be elegant,use rum in the cider and brandy in the eggnog.
For really cheap champagne, Andre Brut is my choice....for more moderately priced, I like Frixinet ( I may have spelled it wrong!!)...Always get the most "un-sweet" Champagne you can buy....unless serving for dessert.

For my wedding reception, which included a bonfire, I had a couple crock pots of warmed cider with an assortment of different flavored Schnapps on hand- butterscotch, cinnamon, can't remember what else offhand. It was a big hit. It's nice if you are serving folks who drink less frequently- more palatable than liquor to less experienced drinkers.

Our family drink is called London Fog - its *really* good....

2 parts coffee
2 parts vanilla ice cream
1 part bourbon

Its best to make it a day or two ahead of time. My normal batch is Quart/Quart/Pint.
