Wandering Star Punch

Wandering Star Punch
by Josey Packard, Drink, Boston, MA
Serves 20

2 cups Bols Genever
2 cups Roi Rene Rouge
2 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
2 750-ml bottles of dry Sparkling Wine

Combine ingredients with ice in a punch bowl. Serve liberally.

French Toast Cocktail

French Toast
by Gina Chersevani, Washington DC

1.5 oz of Woodford Reserve Bourbon
2 bar spoons of Vieux Carre Absinthe
1 oz egg white
1 bar spoon of vanilla simple syrup
1 oz of maple simple syrup
Pinch powdered sugar
Pinch cinnamon

Combine Woodford Reserve, Vieux Carre, vanilla, egg white, maple simple syrup, and cinnamon in a shaker tin, dry shake first. (This will help get a huge, foamy head on the cocktail.) Then add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a Marie Antoinette glass, and dust with powdered sugar. Garish with a few specks of cinnamon in one spot…the contrast is really nice. Enjoy!

Hot Buttered Rum
by Robert Hess

5 oz boiling water
1 tsp. butter
1 tsp. brown sugar
2 oz rum
Dash cinnamon
Dash nutmeg

Add the boiling water to a preheated coffee mug and stir in the butter and brown sugar until both are fully dissolved. Add the rum and stir again then garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg.

To give this drink a special touch, you can heat up some apple cider and use that instead of the boiling water. Some people like to use a little vanilla ice cream as well, but I feel that starts moving this drink away from its more straightforward roots and turns it into something more like a nog.

The Beer Chicks’ Mulled Spiced Moose
by The Beer Chicks

3 bottles Moose Drool Brown Ale*
1 Cinnamon stick
½ tsp Ground Cloves
½ tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 Star Anise Pod
1 tsp Ground Dried Ginger
1 Orange Rind
1 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Rum

In a medium saucepan, heat beer with the spices, orange rind, honey and rum on low to medium-low, keeping below boiling point. Pour into your favorite mug, serve and enjoy the warm spicy beery goodness.

*Try your favorite Brown Ale. We’ve also used (and liked) Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale, Abita Brewing Pecan Harvest Ale, & Goose Island Christmas Ale.
