This week I’m talking about some of my picks for holiday food gifts this year. And much like yesterday’s post about home made peppermint marshmallows, today’s food gift idea is something that can make your holiday cocktail drinking even better. Today’s food gift idea: holiday spice sugar! In case you haven’t noticed, I likes me some cocktails. And hot buttered rum is the perfect drink for cold weather, decorating trees, chestnuts on the proverbial fire…you get the picture. It’s a wonderful, decadent drink that simply screams winter holidays.
As I was walking the dog this morning in a balmy 55 degree morning, I realized the Christmas is a week away already! What the heck happened to December! I’ve been working so hard that I haven’t really gotten into a holiday spirit yet. I’m sure the 12 hour road trip to see relatives will get me there, right? Well, one way to get in the mood for the holidays is to drink a holiday drink, right? And what says Christmas more than candy canes? Peppermint flavored booze, of course!
