Festive Drinking

Ask a Question

my favourite winter drinks are baileys and a snowball. What are yours and when do you indulge in different drinks than you usually would throughout the year?

I will be indulging on hot chocolate and latte wouldn't bother me about drinking personally don't see point you can enjoy Xmas without a drink

Its the highest point of year where alcohol related family arguments are and divorce rates then in the January

This is just my opinion on alcohol but each to their own

I don't drink alcohol so for me it is all about hot chocolate and the Christmas coffees.

I’m not a fan of gin. Wish I was, everyone seems to be drinking it

LenoirLenoir I really disliked gin until a friend got me to try pink gin and lemonade, flavoured gins are now my normal drink.

Janhrrs sometimes its the tonic not the gin people dislike. So many varieties might be worth trying again

Nah Advocaat and Lemonade was always our fave I started drinking it when i was 9 - my dad was naughty!

Been teetotal since I was 18.

So maybe giving yer kids a cigar, *** and booze early on will put em off for life!

garygemmell lol, that one backfired on me. I was only ever allowed a couple of sips of snowball or babysham, I was a very disgruntled 9 year old 😂

Ooh I love snowball around Christmas time with a maraschino cherry on top. Also like disaranno, cherry brandy and apricot brandy at Christmas. It's a struggle but I try to fit them all in 😂 Around June I always seem to buy a bottle of pimms and then that's it for the pimms for another year.

Oh yes, the cherry is a must. It was the only splash of alcohol I was allowed at Christmas growing up. And I only wanted the cherry really lol

LenoirLenoir only a tiddly little dash, I'm not sure you can even taste it but yes you definitely can't have a snowball without a cherry. Honestly, this conversation is starting to make me feel like I have a problem, I could murder any of the above mentioned at the moment and I've got blackcurrant squash! 😂

Mulled wine and cider, port and baileys are all lovely. Spiced juices and flavoured hot chocolates are also nice at this time of the year
