    Anybody have any favorite holiday/winter cocktails or spirits? Favorite winter beers welcome as well.

    This winter I've been making a lot of "wooly mittens."

    Take a mug (biggest mugs you have, or else they're wicked strong - to avoid that, gimp the size of the shots if you must)
    Pour contents of instant cocoa mix (I use Nestlé)
    Fill half way with boiling water
    Add a shot of Baileys
    Shot of Southern Comfort
    Between a splash and a shot of Peppermint Schnaps
    Fill rest of way with boiling water
    Top with whipped cream (homemade if possible)

    That does sound good.

    Apart from the obvious sherrys, baileys, port etc. I dont drink anything specific.

    Having grown up in the Mortal Kombat generation, I mistook the "spiked cider" for "spiced cider".

    I made a variation of a candy cane martini.

    It was 1.5 oz vodka, 1.5 oz peppermint schnapps, 1.5 oz. heavy cream, .5 oz of creme de menthe shaken over ice and strained into a chilled martini glass with a peppermint candy sitting at the bottom.

    Those "wooly mittens" of yours sound reeeally yummy. I usually just enjoy coffee with Bailey's and whipped cream when it's chilly out.
