Cocktails & Spirits 14

Husband's lovely friends are having a "Schnapps" Christmas party to which each guest must bring a bottle of you guessed it. For reasons to innumerable to mention here (but which might include the service of only Mad Dog and cases of Natural Ice at their last soiree), I am not sad to say that I am not attending (nor is DH, we'll be out of town...what a pity) but I am going to drop off a bottle of schnapps on our way to the airport (then run like hell). (Yes, the Christmas party circuit has begun).

Now...I know nothing of schnapps other than having seen Goldschlager around and having had some excellent hot cocoa once at a tailgate made with butterscotch schnapps.

Are schnapps strictly mixers? What would one do with all this stuff....doesn't it seem kinda...syrupy? Also, a brief online search brought up a staggering variety of flavors and brands. Is there any superior product?

I'm sort of a scotch whiskey gal and am tempted to buy the cheapest thing I could find, but on the other hand I don't want to be a Grinch.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
