We dreamt up six fresh, delicious libations that can appeal to every celebration -- from winter weddings to Christmas to New Year's -- and delight the palette at the same time. These seasonal drinks will not only warm up any cold weather fete, they can also be enjoyed once the temperatures rise. (Bonus!)
When I was a kid in the 1960s, my sister and I had our very own New Year's Eve tradition. Every December 31st on the stroke of midnight, we'd duck out of the party our folks usually threw to dial the operator and wish her a Happy New Year. We always felt sorry that she had to work and miss all the excitement.
