    Negroni’s. Although I’ve been quite partial to White Negroni’s lately made with Gin, Suze, and Cocchi Americano.

    Gin is born of pine needles and magic.

    So gin tonic.

    Milk. It's the only thing that works.

    The restaurant I work at has White Negronis with Gin, Elderflower Liqueur, Yellow Chartreuse, and Dolin Vermouth. They're really tasty.

    I'll be drinking Godfathers and Amaretto Sours as usual.

    It's strange, so far nobody mentions (as far as I know) traditional Christmas drinks, like mulled wine. I generally drink Winter Royal from Rebellion Beer: https://www.rebellionbeer.co.uk/mobile-home/beer/full-beer-range.aspx
    And their Roasted Nuts too.

    We've been drinking a lot of mulled wine as well, my girlfriend has been making it. Pretty tasty.

    I love mulled wine. But to truly enjoy it I think it needs to be drunk on a cold day.

    This time of year I like to visit the National Collection of Cider and Perry at Middle Farm:

    Bring your own container, or buy one, and fill it from their huge selection. Very Christmassy. (My favourite from a couple of years ago was a blackcurrant cider called Dark Cider The Moon.)

    Nigella Lawson shared on Twitter a mulled cider recipe recently. I'd try that one.

    I had my first cup of mulled wine today, in a local wine shop. A freebie. It has been a long time.

    My wife doesn't like alcohol much, but she enjoys Bucks Fizz during Christmastime. There's one M&S is selling now, with clementine and cranberry juices. This is what she'll drink.
