A time-honored tradition of Christmas is singing through the best holiday songs and caroling through the neighbourhood. Turn on the stove, heat up some eggnog, and spike it with rye-whiskey and honey to make the Spiced Hot Toddy- the perfect warmup or post-carol-singing cocktail.
The top 10 Christmas Carols of 2019 are: White Christmas, The Christmas Song, Silent Night, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls, Joy to the World, O Holy Night, Carol of the Bells, and The First Noel. These are the songs that embody Christmas and are heard the most during the holiday season.
Even if you just hum along while at the mall buying presents, in the car, or at the grocery store, these are the songs that will permeate our brains for all of December. Be prepared for non-stop Christmas music until 2020. You better not shout or cry—because Christmas is here and the sounds of the season are everywhere.
Spiced Hot Toddy:
- 2 oz spiced Canadian rye-whiskey
- 1 oz eggnog
- 1 tsp honey
Heat eggnog. Pour all ingredients into a warm mug. Swirl with a cinnamon stick.
