The holidays bring out the kid in you and you don’t care who knows it. You love the hustle and bustle at the shopping mall, piling into the car to admire the lights, and cozying up by the fire with your favorite drink (topped with marshmallows, of course!). You’ve been blasting the holiday tunes since the first of November — and you’re not letting anyone touch the dial until well after the new year. Shake those holiday haters off and keep sippin’ that cocoa.
Seasonal Craft Beer
Ah, nothing like the refreshing taste of some local craft beer while you’re kickin’ it at home for the holidays. When you’ve got a six pack of your favorite seasonal, not much can raise your blood pressure. You’re as chill as the frosty mug in your hand, and not even screaming children or nagging girlfriends can kill your buzz. Spread the cheer (and the beer) this holiday season with your relaxed vibes and stress-killing smile.
You love the holidays and the traditions that go with them. Dedicated time with your family, gift-giving rituals, and homemade recipes are what you love most about this time of year. You’ll take your customary eggnog in any way, shape, or form — lattés, on the rocks, hot, spiced, spiked, or straight from the carton. Pro tip: Avoid eggnog overdose this season by keeping TUMS on you at all times.
Spiked Hot Apple Cider
Well, well, well … you must think you’re pretty sneaky, huh? While your colleagues think you’re responsibly sipping the adult equivalent of a sippy cup, you’re actually having a little private party of your own. We can’t blame you for adding some punch to your punch, it keeps things (and everyone else) interesting and easygoing — exactly the way you like it. Just don’t be surprised if you happen to end up on the naughty list this year. Coal, anyone?
Skinny Peppermint Mocha
Oh, the holidays. So many opportunities for the perfect Instagram, so little time. Between the neighborhood cookie exchanges, the secret santa get-togethers, and the obligatory night out for The Nutcracker, your social calendar is filled to the brim this season. Shopping is now your only form of exercise (see you next year, barre class), and you barely have time to send out personalized greeting cards or DIY that wintery wreath (imagine the filtering options!). Don’t let the craziness get you down this season — keep your chin up and the specialty drinks flowing.
Here’s to the holidays! If champagne is your go-to drink, you’re the life of the party. (But we have a feeling you already knew that.) Whether it’s your annual office soirée, a traditional family gathering, or the most epic NYE blowout in town, you’re the one poppin’ bottles and leading the train to the dance floor. You’ve mastered the art of delivering the perfect toast, and to you, there’s no occasion that doesn’t deserve a raised glass and a big ol’ cheers!
Another year, another ridiculous display of holiday nonsense. To you, the holidays are a headache and getting through them requires some major caffeine (like … a lot). Lights and decorations? Please. Cue the dramatic eye rolls. Holiday carols? Might as well be nails on a chalkboard. Parties and get-togethers? Excuse me while I go shake the glitter out of my hair. Our advice: Hunker down for the next month and a half with a strong cup of joe and plaster on that fake holiday grin. Nobody needs a Scrooge.
So, what does your drink say about you? Are you bitter like a cup of black coffee, spirited like eggnog, or bright and bubbly like a flute of champagne? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter — Happy Holidays!
