We'd venture to say that there is nothing better than sipping on a Christmas drink during a chilly, snowy winter day. It doesn't matter if it's sweet or filled with spices, a cocktail or a mocktail, or whether it tastes of fruit or chocolate. All that matters is that it's there for us to enjoy as we celebrate the Christmas season.
