Christmas cocktails

I'm looking for some yummy holiday cocktails to serve Christmas Day evening. We're having horsd'oeuvres. It's not going to be formal, just some delish horsd'oeuvres, a fire, dim lighting, drinks, and about 12-15 family members (all drinkers).

I'm hoping to find some drinks that don't contain cranberry. I'm looking for several options. I'm thinking sweet, peppermint, vanilla, chocolate, anything RED (and non cranberry), nothing too tarty. Just some sweet (and festive) indulgence.

  • Go to MSN's food site called "delish" may be www.delish.com but not 100% on that. You can go to www.msn.com and click on the food and entertaining tab. They have a recipe there called "Healthy Makeover Eggnog" that is FABULOUS! Takes some time, but you can make it up to 2 days ahead of time and just keep it in the fridge. The recipe only makes about 6 cups worth, so you'd have to make multiple batches to serve a crowd.

  • You could always make a Shirley temple for the kids and add some rum in it for the adults! :)

  • Chocolate Ice Cream Sundae shots - yummy
    equal parts Kaluha, Irish cream, and Creme De Cocoa. Shake in ice, strain, pour into shot glasses and top with whipped cream.
