Drink Responsibly!

 

unnamed-1

I know there are no “winners” in a White Elephant holiday gift exchange; but somehow I managed to win last night!  I strategized carefully, ignoring the social pressure not to “steal” a gift from seemingly nice strangers in order to come home with this vegan holiday beer and polyester Santa “snuggie” in hand.

Beer drinking (and even cocktail drinking) around the holidays can be tricky; for flavoring purposes, certain beer may contain dairy, gelatin, or even shellfish!  And typically, eggnog and hot chocolate is dairy-and-calorie-laden.  Thus, I am providing you with a holiday guide to conscientious imbibing. Cheers.

This is a sweet-tasting option, brewed with peaches and pecans.  Australian International Beer bronze award winner in 2013.

Brewed with locally harvested spruce tips in Juneau, Alaska, this is a malty, warming, seasonal beer.

Brewed in Seattle, Washington, this is referred to as a “winter warmer” due to having higher alcohol content and a bold (in this case, chocolate and nutty) flavor.

This dairy-free option seriously tastes JUST like the real thing. Really. REALLY, really.

At only 70 calories per serving (woohoo!) this vegan cocoa option packs a slight kick with the addition of cinnamon and cayenne.

** note: polyester snuggies (ie- fleece-free!) are hard to find this year for some reason, but THEY ARE OUT THERE!  I lucked out, since I came home with an unopened, re-gifted snuggie from last year’s party.  Based on my research, your best bet seems to be to peruse ebay for options like this one.
