I'm getting into the literal meaning of Christmas Spirits. Its a given for my Martha Stewart Eggnog, but this year, I want to have a good old-fashioned cocktail hour before dinner on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. My "repertoire" of drinks is really limited to Kir Royales..but I just purchased a cocktail shaker thingy and I'm obsessing now.
Anyone got a great old school cocktail recipe they want to share. My trust is in you fellow Chowhounds! Bottoms up and here's lookin' up your ancestors!
