Can be non alcoholic too, but we have
Advocat (Love a snowball on Christmas Eve!)
Southern Comfort
Sauterne (great with Stilton)
Mulled wine
Needless to say I don't drink all of this, it's for entertaining guests over the festive period..I quite like them all though!
What do you like to have in?

Ginger wine!!!! Ooooh I love it but never really get thru the whole bottle

Mulled wine, Shloer, Buck’s Fizz.

Mulled wine, sloe gin, ginger wine and a couple of bottles of sparkling wine for Bucks Fizz on Christmas morning.

Baileys and mulled wine

Eminybob Sat 21-Oct-17 20:35:59

Baileys and maybe champagne.

I've got my eye on the new pumpkin spice baileys this year. Looks amazing

Baileys, tia maria

I make sloe gin some years which reminds me that i need to start it

There are bottles in the cupboard of cointreau and disaronno that we only tend to use at Christmas

But the baileys and tia maria go...

Never buy chocolate Baileys. It's like drinking melted chocolate icecream except you're pissed at the end.

Dandelion and Burdock - I never seem to see it for the rest of the year (I just glance over it) but it seems to jump in my trolley at xmas

bimbobaggins Sat 21-Oct-17 21:40:18

Shloer here too!

ThisIsNotARealAvo Sat 21-Oct-17 21:41:20

Port and baileys, or an Aldi version which is called Irish knights or something. And an Aldi drink called Esprit d'Orange which is like Cointreau and I only get at Christmas.

Tend to keep the same sort of drinks available all year round. Don't get anything in specially for Christmas.
