LET'S MIX IT UP.

("Hell, yeah!" says my inner irresponsible adult.)

No, not like that.

I mean, yeah, maybe like that. I dunno, it could make sense if your week has been like mine. . . But anyway:

But Christmas is approaching fast, and this year my gift list is getting a trio of homemade liqueurs: Creme de Menthe, Amaretto, and Cinnamon-Chili Whiskey.

I would like to include a small assortment of seasonal mixing recipes—like creme de menthe and hot chocolate, or Fireball and Fireball and Fireball and why are the cops here? (I told you about the drinks I knew, okay?)

What would you, my esteemed fellow travellers through space and time, include on The Official O-Deck Fancypants Seasonal Tasting Menu?
