Scrooge-Proof: The Christmas Spirit, Bottled

Anchor Distilling's Christmas Spirit

When it comes to celebrating this holiday season, it's time to ditch the store-bought eggnog for something a little more interesting. Every November through mid-January, Anchor Brewing releases its coveted Christmas Ale—a rich, dark, boldly spiced delight with a top-secret recipe of malts, hops, and spices that changes slightly every year. Now, the Anchor team has distilled the ale down to the 2014 Christmas Spirit, a deliciously festive libation that's sure to put a twinkle in your eye, thanks to flavors of bright holiday spices, orange peel, and poached apple.

The second-most-famous “cocktail” in San Francisco (which happens to predate its better-known relative, the Irish coffee), Tosca Cafe’s House Cappuccino has been the “coffee break” of choice since its debut in 1919—never mind that the original version wasn’t actually very good.
