Hot apple cider, except I fell asleep on the couch for an hour, so now it’s more like room temperature apple cider.

Strawberry hibiscus session mead I made.

We had boozy coffees last night - kahlua and time in mine and kahlua and peppermint schnapps in the wife's.

Today, it was hot spiced wine.

^^Hot butterscotch toddies? That sounds awesome - can you share the recipe?

My grocery store makes an amazing tart cherry apple cider and it was on sale today, so I’m having some of that now. I’ve got a cocktail shaker full of martinis in the freezer for later.

^^^ Sure, and dead easy:

Warm an Irish coffee glass or a mug with hot water, then after a minute or so, pour that out. To the mug, add:

1 tsp sugar (raw sugar or even brown sugar preferred)
1 oz dark rum
1 oz butterscotch schnapps
3 oz hot water
Dash of cinnamon

Stir and enjoy!

Eggnog! I love eggnog. I try not to over-indulge in it for the sake of my waistline, but this is from a local dairy and it’s sooooo good.

^^^ We're having the same, spiked with spiced rum! As for going easy with it, this is our second big bottle, and it's also local.

I think I'll add these here, since it mainly involves wine.

We have five Advent calendars - one is a wine calendar, one is a cheese calendar, one is a variety of treats I filled for the wife, one with Bonne Maman jams, and the other is just little chocolates infilled for myself.

The wine and cheese ones are both from Aldi, and the contents are actually paired, so day 1's wine goes with day 1's cheese, etc.

Day 1 - cava, Red Leicester cheese, cherry-blackberry spread, a Kit Kat, and a little choco Santa.

Day 2 - Sauvignon Blanc, Gouda, orange-mandarin spread, sunflower seeds, and a little choco snowman.
