In all fairness let me just say I don’t really drink all that much. I enjoy it less and less the older I get, but there are times when I like to indulge and one of those times is Christmas.
Typically I like a good glass of Pinot Grigio but at Christmas and a few other special occasions I like to drink a Nuts and Berries.
A nuts and berries is a drink that taste, well, just like nuts and berries. It’s smooth and sweet.
I like to make mine with whole milk but you can also use heavy cream or if you want to really get festive, mix it with eggnog.
Here’s what you need,
Mix together, 1 oz of Chambord and 1 oz of Frangelica, pour over ice and fill with whole milk. (You can substitute the milk with cream or eggnog as I mentioned above.) Most importantly, enjoy.
Isn’t that a sweet punch bowl? It’s a vintage 1950’s Hazel Atlas Egg Nog set/Punch Bowl with 12 cups with Horse and Carriage and Tom and Jerry design. I got it at a yard sale for only 5 bucks but I found one here and here. I absolutely love it. Vintage Christmas finds are the best and I’ll probably end up handing it down to the Kid or one of my nieces eventually. Hopefully it will stay in our family for generations to come.
What’s your favorite drink?
How often do you indulge in libations? hehe, I said libations.
