From Captain Adam Hoden and Jesus Miguel Hernandez:
It's Christmas time, and that means that we proud members of the Brotherhood of Gentlemen Alcoholics must make an effort to promote appropriate seasonal booze. Generally, the responsibility would fall upon our honored associate Shamus O'Toole, but he is unavailable--it seems that he's enlisted the Turkish Navy.
Christmas is a season for BGA members can let their hair down and enjoy far less formal cocktails. Normal Brotherhood rules, of corse, require members to abstain from alcoholic beverages that don't taste like liquor--those drinks being designed solely for the purposes of intoxicating college girls--but December marks a time of year during which Brothers may too enjoy drinks with a holiday theme. In that spirit, we suggest that you ask your bartender for any of the following delightful holiday drinks.
- The Candy Cane: a delightful vodka and peppermint schnapps cocktail.
- Eggnog: pour brandy, rum, or bourbon into eggnog. What's not to like?
- The Hot Toddy: basically booze and hot water. Again, what's not to like?
- Any of the myriad delicious Christmas punch recipes.
- Hot Chocol-
Actually, you can probably just pour some rum or brandy into any of your children's favorite drinks and call it a Christmas cocktail--who the hell will know the difference?
So from me, Mr. Hernandez, and the absent Mr. O'Toole, Happy Holidays. And try not to fight anyone.

We're not sure which one is him.
