  5. Karen says:

    My favourite Christmas drink would have to be a Tia Maria coffee. Hot, slightly boozey and with a good swirl of squirty cream on top. I never drink them at any other time of the year so they always make me feel festive 🙂

  6. allyouneedisloveandcake says:

  7. Jayne says:

    Mine would usually be a Port and Lemon, but I'll have to avoid that completely this year, what with being up the duff. If we're talking non-alcoholic, I'd go for ginger beer.

  15. Rachel G says:

    I'm not a big alcoholic drinker, and would rather be tucked up with a nice cup of tea or a cocoa – but with Christmas Dinner, I love a little glass of Bucks Fizz. For me it's a memories thing, as I remember being allowed a little bit at Christmas' with my grandparents, who are no longer around.

With that being said however, after a shopping trip on Sunday and discovering Costa's new white hot chocolate I can see that becoming my Christmas drink of 2013! I just hope it stays and it's not just for Christmas, it's lovely x

  315. Hilda Hazel Wright says:

    Hard to answer, it could be stella artois 4% because it goes nicely with our Christmas Curry (xmas dinner!), or it could be the lovely Hendricks gin that we treat ourselves to at Christmas, or it could be red wine that is so lovely with lots of meals and to sip on a cold dark evening or it could be lovely tasty Jack Daniels and diet coke or the new amazing Jack Daniels honey that I like a sip of at the end of an evening…then again like you a cup of tea goes down a treat!

    A small glass of Laphroaig whisky,which tastes amazing and smoky, because it's the closest you can get to warming your feet by an open fire – even if you don't have one!
