It’s the time of year to indulge. Many Bunco get togethers will center around good food and desserts (cookies!). A delicious seasonal beverage is a perfect accompaniment. My group has had three December Bunco games so far throughout the years, with a fourth coming up this Sunday! The first year we met at a Mexican restaurant, played Bunco and drank margaritas. The second and third years we met at a members home, who along with her best friend are awesome at entertaining. It is a not to miss event each year. They go all out with non-alcoholic punch, soda and delicious Champagne Punch. These wine charms would be great to keep track of whose cup is whose.
Hot beverages are popular during the winter season. Even in the Southwest we are in the mood for a warm beverage. One of my favorite ways to serve hot chocolate is in the slow cooker. Drinking hot cocoa can be even more fun with a toppings bar. The presentation can be beautiful and festive. I always get compliments and comments saying it looked like I worked so hard to put it together. The truth is it is so easy to do! You can let them think it is hard to do. Mini marshmallows, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, candy canes and mini chocolate chips make perfect fixings for hot chocolate. For those that enjoy a spirited beverage, Irish cream can be added as well.
Some other festive beverages for this time of year include Egg Nog, Spiced Cider and Mulled Wine. What is your favorite seasonal Bunco beverage? Is there a tried and true favorite your group loves?
