What do you drink during the myriad of holidays that begin this month? And...what beverages carry you through the Winter?

Yes, you can list 'Rum'.

Apple Pie has taken on a life of its own here. I shared several gallons with my CW reenacting group and it has spread far and wide.

This is the time of year events start back up in Arizona and corresponds to the holidays.

Oh, I forgot to mention... I was introduced to a drink called "shrub" that was popular in America during colonial times. This particular version was Spirit free and was made from a vinegar syrup and a raspberry flavoring. It was a bit shocking to the nose at first but was very smooth and delightful.

A raspberry drink called shrub is too funny, yet so appropriate. Drink names are fun.

My wife makes an awesome "Cherry Bounce" which is a cherry flavoured, bourbon based beverage, that has it's roots in the late 18th century if not earlier. A few years back she an a couple of other people challenged each other to a "bounce off" at a War of 1812 event we do.... She won hands down (of course she cheated by using top shelf bourbon when everyone else was using the cheap stuff). :D

Perhaps a 'list' is in order for period holiday & winter drinks. And maybe recipes too.
