This week during my Internet travels, I decided to look into some new drinks for this holiday season. I found a ton of spiced punches, various apple cinnamon martini type drinks. Nothing really caught my attention quite like the “8 Flying Reindeer” drink.
It stands out specifically because of how totally gross it must be. When we started carrying ginger beer, we all had to try it, of course. I thought it was completely horrible. I mean, so bad in fact, I thought about scooping up some soil from the ground upon which I was standing and chewing it like gum to escape the evil ginger flavors that had permeated my every taste bud…. Ok, it wasn’t that bad, but this dude found a way to make it even more unappealing. Cayenne pepper? Really? Maybe two wrongs make a right. I do know this. I’m not trying it. Maybe you can give it a shot and let me know how it goes. I will stay with Eggnog and cookies. The only use I think I might have for this drink is if I had too many at the Christmas party and I wanted to purge myself of all those rum and cokes.
Happy Holidays! Drink responsibly.
