Citrus at Social is whipping up a flight of three holiday-themed drinks for the month of December, including the Apple Cider with Stoli Vanilla and Goldschlager, which sounds to us like a ski trip to a mountain made of gold-wrapped candies. The Candy Cane, also with Stoli Vanilla, brings to mind a beautiful, sparkly peppermint forest behind the ski chalet.
But as delightfully tempting as those two concoctions may be, we'd sample the Egg Nog cocktail first, which, among other tasty ingredients, contains brandy and a rim loaded with graham-crackery bits. Though consuming copious amounts of egg nog may not change the economic headlines or the pressure to find everyone in the family the perfect, not-too-pricey gift, we believe a little sip of the creamy stuff alleviates December distress instantly, and for a good 20 minutes thereafter. And that we can try it in cocktail form? Heavenly.
