What's everyone's favourite Christmas tipped? I'm a bargain shopper and tend to buy what's on offer but my favourite has to be jack Daniels with Coke.
I do also like a bailys Irish cream and brandy at the festive period.

I like a JD with or without Coke myself. :thumbright:
Any decent "real ale" as well.
Single malt too.
I'm easy to please me! :-)

Well... 364 days of the year I'm on Scrumpy Jack and whatever Red Wine is on offer in Morrisons (Though not Hardys crest or anything else that purports to be half-price)

Christmas day will start with half-a-bottle of Cava, a really good Burgundy with lunch.. a few cocktails maybe to follow.. and then a Vintage Port before bed-time... :wink:

Remy Martin VSOP .. I love it. It doesn't like me...I tend not to go anywhere near the "Top shelf" as I find it gives me a hangover...

Fursty Ferret, Doom Bar, Tanglefoot, Old Speckled Hen are some of the beers in the beer fridge, also cider for Wifey.
Christmas Lunch, Red Wine, white wine, rose wine whatever the guests want, us soft drinks.
Evening cocktails, Laverstoke Gin Cocktail, Bombay Gin & Tonic, Gin & Tonic with cucumber is nice, Port as nightcap.

Don't drink Rum so much these days. Sometimes have a Whiskey.

Don't suffer from hangovers just feel tired later in the day.

I like a drop of Southern Comfort, I picked up a litre for xmas a few weeks back and tested it for quality but it seems to have evaporated :lol: so I had to buy another.

I shall be drinking a few real ales as well though, a selection of different ones from the supermarket.

I hardly drink at all these days, a bit different to when I was younger but we all grow up eventually.

I'll probably open a bottle of red on Xmas day, a Pinot Noir I think, to go with my Duck breast, and we'll be down to see nipper in the far SW of Wales between Xmas & New Year when dinner will be taken in a pub somewhere for three nights, hopefully I'll be able to find a decent pint of bitter to accompany that:otherwise I like a single malt now and again (almost anything except Glenfiddich).

I can't get into beer drinking at home, it's just not the same, and I object to standing outside a pub like some sort of social leper just to get my nicotine fix.

Tea in vast quantities, Coffee, (never instant), Orange Juice, Beer, Wine , Dry Cider, Whisky - I don't really ever drink anything else.

A cousin of mine bought me a bottle a Calvados many years ago, one shot of that gives me an almost instant headache, I think I tried it about three times with the same effect each time and then gave up, the rest of it is still in a cupboard somewhere.

Throughout the year it's generally real ales and ciders but specifically at Christmas I always make a few snowballs , bit girlie I know but I do like them. Oh and last year our local still had a few bottles of babycham which is also rather nice if a little twee , certainly nicer than the absinthe they also had which we though we'd try.
